As i said i also thought it was 8 bit. Thats why i was surprised to see it shows as 10-bit in MacOS. Do you know why?It has a 8-bit panel, although UltraFine 5K has a 10-bit panel.
The first 8 might mean something else and the three 8 after means 8 bit/color. like argb8 888. Its argb2 101010 on my mbp.Interesting. On my MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2015) the LG Ultrafine 4K shows as "32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)".
Also interesting: at native res or higher, System Information shows it running at 48 Hz; lower resolutions show 60 Hz.
I wouldn't trust the product page. On apples swedish page the 5k has millions instead of billions of colors. Maybe the 4k is 10 bit.I've been looking into the Ultrafine monitors to go with my yet to arrive mbp. I was settled on the 4K until I saw it was 8 bit with the 5K being 10 bit. Why doesn't Apple put this vital info in the products page? It's a pretty huge difference between the two to not mention it. Especially when they rave on about the P3 colourspace. When you're using colour gamut as a selling point then bit depth is rather vital. Now I'm going to have to splash out for the 5K.
This is what i think. Someone att Apple don't know the difference between million and billion.
you're confusing pixel depth and color depth. they have different values which is why you see 30 bit in system report. the 4k only supports 16.7 million colors, not sure why you keep pushing the idea that the 4k and 5k is the same panel.
