Sorry, my formulation was quite misleading. As far as I know the generic
wide gamut correction of the DTP94 with iColor Display 3 is inside the
software and with Argyll I would indeed need a CCMX file. My question
was more concerning the i1 Display Pro: Is the wide gamut correction
included in this device or is a correction not necessary anymore? Or is
it still in the software so X-Rite can advertise it as being compatible
with wide gamut screens? I do not have a spectrometer available so this
would be interesting to know because I cannot judge how good the generic
wide gamut correction of my current Dell + DTP94 + iColor Display 3 is.

Thank you for your clarifications,
