CoercionShamanStated in a couple of reviews. Here is one. https://www.techpowerup.c...eForce_GTX_1080/3.html High Dynamic Range, or HDR, isn't a new concept in photography. It isn't even new to PC gaming, as some of the oldest games with HDR (using simple bloom effects) date back to the Valve Source engine (early 2000s). Those apps, however, used the limited 24-bit (8-bit per color, 16.7 million colors in all) color palette to emulate HDR. Modern bandwidth-rich GPUs such as the GTX 1080 have native support for large color palettes, such as 10-bit (1.07 billion colors) and 12-bit (68.7 billion colors), to accelerate HDR content without software emulation. This includes support for 10-bit and 12-bit HVEC video decoding at resolutions of up to 4K @ 60 Hz, or video encoding at 10-bit for the same resolution. EDIT: I guess nothing there specifically says it is over DP. Apologies.
ipkhaIt should do 10 and 12 bit color over DP and HDMI. I forget which v erosion of DP added HDR support, but the 2.0b HDMI and latest DP version will output it just fine.
CoercionShamanI can select 10 bit in the drop down when I am connected to monitors that are 10 bit capable, yes.
CoercionShamanWe have professional grade monitors at work that I was referring to. Some systems run the Quadro cards, others the 'normal' cards. It works on the 'normal' cards as well. Probably not something that is in most homes because of the prices. My Dell U3415W allows me to select it, but it is actually 8 bit with dithering, so I don't know if there is actually any real benefit.
MilenaMNvidia consumer class cards (Geforce GTX) can only output 10 bit color in a Direct X11 exclusive fullscreen mode. To get 10 bit color output on the Desktop in a way professional applications use it you need a Quadro card and drivers. Nvidia is blocking this for Geforce cards, regardless of the control panel setting a Geforce card will not process/output proper 10 bit color output. Anyone in doubt just try this tool: http://www.necdisplay.com/documents/Software/NEC_10_bit_video_Windows_demo.zip Works with my Quadro M5000, fails with my GTX1080. Same PC, a NEC SpectraView Reference 322UHD-2 as Monitor. To test 10 bit output in DX11 exclusive fullscreen you can try this: http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=172128 Games that I know that can render in 10 bit with a Geforce card if your Monitor supports it: GRID 2, GRID Autosport, Alien: Isolation. There may be more now.
STR8_AN94BALLER is there a hack for 10 bit output?
