In the description of monitors, you can see in the technical specifications, support for sRGB-125% or NTSC 76%, as well as Adobe RGB 92%, CMYK 50%. These parameters indicate how many colors from the standard can show the monitor.
Briefly about the color space:
sRGB – was developed in 1996 by HP and Microsoft, the purpose of the standard was to combine color monitors printers and the Internet, that images had the same color gamut and were equally displayed when printing and viewing.
Adobe RGB – It was developed in 1998, as the name implies, by Adobe, the purpose of creating a standard with an enhanced color gamut is greater than that of sRGB.
In the 1990s, printers were developed using color model CMYK for color printing, which made it possible to make prints with a more extended color range than sRGB.
NTSC – one of the first color standards was developed in 1953 when color television was developed, is now not used but is used for comparison, since in this standard the color spectrum was quite wide.
REC 2020 – standards (2012) for UHDTV (UHD 4K and UHD 8K). The RGB color space, which has a color gamut that is wider than almost all other RGB color spaces. There are no displays available that can display the entire gamut of REC 2020.

SMYK– this color model, the manufacturers of printers in the process of developing color printers, came to the decision that the most high-quality photo can be printed using ink of the following colors, cyan, magenta, yellow and black key .
The figure shows the spectrum visible to the person, the color shades and how different standards are superimposed on the visible spectrum.

Now back to what it means
sRGB-125%– the monitor supports the sRGB color space (all monitors support sRGB) and can cover up to 25% more color space when viewing.
Adobe RGB 92%
Adobe RGB 92% – The monitor has support for this standard and it can cover 92% of the color space in the standard.
Comparison with the NTCS standard is very arbitrary and is given only as background information.
