  • Interesting, because the (more expensive) CG2730 (apparently) is not: https://www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/210e70b
  • And both of them are true 10-bit, unlike the 24" and 27" NEC and Eizo.
  • Not sure whether it matters (to you or in general), but just to mention that the PA 272W is 8bit+FRC: https://www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/b26837c PA302 is 10bit: ...
  • Which only proofs that 'correctly' testing and 'total smoothness' cannot differentiate between a true 10-bit monitor and 8bit plus dithering (which the iMac does) I assume you are aware that your ...
  • True(ish) - apart from the very recently announced BenQ SW271 I have found a true 10-bit 27" for professionals (as in, like you wrote, 14/16 (3D) LUT etc)
  • Genuine question, from an amateur with no experience in this at all (but who's reading up on this before, possibly, investing in a 10bit or 8bit+FRC monitor): Given the few applications that can ...
  • Not THAT simple, as most 'advertised/sold-as-10bit' monitors - including most Eizo, NEC, BenQ - are actually NOT true 10-bit...
  • Well said.
  • Very much depends on your NEC (and Eizo, for that matter) - nearly all are actually 8bit + FRC panels, without you telling (like Apple): https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/60367459 How do you ...
  • BTW, which Nvidia card are you using?
  • Replied in and NEC...
    see also, for instance: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2359258
  • Replied in and NEC...
    As far as I understand do most current consumer GPUs, even the high gamers' ones, NOT run 10 bits, unless in Direct X11 - see this thread: https://forums.evga.com/gtx-1080-support-for-10-bit-displa ...
  • Replied in and NEC...
    And I have seen reviews of 10-bit panels where a such a card was used... (such as the well-regarded prad.de site) I'm, now, even doubtful about Northlight Images, when I see him writing in the ...
  • Replied in and NEC...
    Maybe for LCD panels it's "Lies, Damn Lies, and Dithering" ;-) (which could be seen as 'Statistics' in a way...)
  • Replied in and NEC...
    Agreed. But as you see, the CG-series are 'only' 8bit + FRG for their 224 and 27 inches as well...
  • The SW271 is the true 10bit, the NEC PA272 and Eizo CG/CS270 are 8bit plus FRC

  • Replied in and NEC...
    NEC - 14bit (3D) LUT, 100 sRGB, 99.3% Abode RGB, 10bit / 1 billion colors, but also 'only' 8bit + FRC: PA272W: https://www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/b26837c PA242W: ...
  • Well, Peter, I did some research, like you suggested - it's not just Apple; BenQ (see my earlier) too and, surprisingly (?) Eizo as well - some examples of (3D) LUT 16-bits, claiming 10-bit, 1 ...
  • Not necessarily: 40 bit (ARGB10101010) is not possible with 32-bit pixels the maximum is 24 bit color (8-bit) plus 8-bit alpha = ARGB8888 OR 30 bit color plus 2 bit alpha = ARGB2101010 see: https:/ ...
  • but then again, the cheap(er) BL2711U is only 100% sRGB, no 3D LUT, but does have true 10-bit color: https://www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/6089337
