Re: Will Quadro Cards give you 30 bit color with Photoshop now?

AFAIK, Photoshop only works with Firepro cards if you want 10 bits per channel color for still image editing, unless something has changed with CS6.

Yes, they released it. You're unsure, but stating with great definition (and tremendous word count) to the contrary anyway. That doesn't serve anyone well.

Adobe is fairly clear- windows + DP + supported opengl card. They've been running the beta for a good while and the summary is - unlike 4 and 5 where it was a random draw, cs6 just works for 10 bit.

The upside to the firepro is it will do 3 monitors at once, even for the cheap 4800, and with 2 DP ports that should be 10bit each. But if Premiere matters, seems better to stay with nvidiia.

Why isn't Nvidia making a big deal of it? How many people have 10 bit displays, don't want gaming performance, and care about 10bit photos? Not that many. One reason why Adobe didn't do a good job of it in cs5.
