Okay, so we all know that Quadro series cards are identical in hardware to their GTX counterparts and that its just a firmware difference (and not much of one) that allows the drivers to work. I have a very nice Dell U2410f sitting here, which has a 1.07b color gamut (30-bit [10 bit/channel]) However Nvidia (being the company they are) only offers 30-bit color depth on Quadro series cards, anybody know of a workaround or what you can flash (safely) on a GTX 460?
I'm running linux, atlhough I don't think thats important.

EDIT:
Found my answer, with a GTX 460 its impossible as there are no GF 104 based Quadro cards.
With windows it would be possible using a modified driver package. In Linux the configuration file for the driver install is not present, since linux is capable of doing the detection on the fly. Oh well, I can only see the dithering on certain images anyway.
