10-bit Color/U3011 + ASUS GTX 580 Matrix Platinum + DisplayPort

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Greetings,

I've been trying to verify whether or not the GeForce series supports 10-bit over DisplayPort. I know it supports xvYCC over HDMI, but that limits me to 1920x1200 which is less than desirable on a 2560x1600 display.

I know the Quadro supports it, but I cannot find any documentation one way or the other from NVIDIA about the GeForce. I can find older posts that say you have to go to Quadro, but I don't know if any driver updates or if the 5xx-series supports it.

I'm also not even sure if there's a way to verify whether or not I'm at 8-bit or 10-bit color...

Thanks for your help!

Try asking over at the ROG forums, should have an answer in a day or so. They have tech support that will answer questions from time to time and generally good response time overall

No GTX580 that I know of supports 10-bit in any output. Not only that, the Matrix doesn't even have a displayport. Is dual-link DVI not enough? Are you trying to do some professional graphics work?

If you're just trying to use the 3011 I would use the dual-link and sRBG mode on the monitor, it seems to work well with the dell IPS panels.

The drivers don't support 10-bit. If you want 10-bit, you need to get a Quadro with DisplayPort.

Not many applications support 10-bit color. Windows Aero does not support 10-bit color afaik. People who do certain types of photography, video editing, and medical imaging can actually use 10-bit color.

Yeah I was wondering why he needed it, didn't really state the purpose behind the thread.

I think he's using the DVI ports for his other monitor.

I use DVI-DL for my U2711, but my U3011 is hooked up via DisplayPort. I was hoping to get 10-bit color for my RAW images in PhotoShop CS4, but oh well.

Well, I don't really care if Aero is in 10-bit color; I really don't care if the gradients are any smoother in my GUI. RAW image files, however, are of more interest.

Wow I'm retarded, I forgot it had one. I just sold two of those as well. Yeah, 10-bit is going to require a Quadro just for drivers. The hardware itself supports it I believe but the drivers do not.

No worries, we all have those days! Hopefully they come out with a GF110 based Quadro so I can just make my GeForce feel more expensive than it is.
