There's NO 10-bit graphics card for the Mac Pro??
I can't tell you if there isnt...
But I can tell you what there is
10 bit you say? .... what?! Are we going back to 1999?
I thought most current cards did support it, a lot of the more expensive monitors do, but there's no software pathway for it except on specialized stuff?
10-bit per component, not 8-bit.
The only one I can think of, is the nVidia Quadro 4800 that works in a Mac.
Check the datasheet, 2nd page, 3rd heading down.
Not exactly cheap though, as the MSRP is $1699USD.
oh thats right, forgot about the quadros
Well, at $1699USD, no wonder.
That's not the Mac Edition datasheet. I read that for Mac, only 8-bit is supported.
The Mac version's data sheet didn't say one way or the other, so I checked the PC data sheet, which shows 10bit per support.
I figured they didn't actually break that on the Mac side. How foolish of me.
BTW, how did you confirm this was the case?
There was some ranting at engadget. OSX had a limitation and I don't see any news for any Leopard.
I'll see if I can find it.
It might be worth sending an email off to nVidia to see what they have to say about it. There's a good chance they'd answer it.
