12-bit is better than 8-bit still

The big thing about 12-bit LUTs in monitors, even if the output to the panel itself is only 8-bit, is that the display chooses between those 68.7 thousand million (12-bit color) or so colors available and maps them to the 8-bit output (16.78 million or so colors). With an 8-bit LUT, you'd have only 16.78 million colors to choose from, to map to their correct places in a 16.78 million color output, thus some repeated colors will be displayed, and potential posterization.

its weakest link.
