New NVIDIA Studio Driver Enables 30-bit Color on GeForce and TITAN Cards
NVIDIA Studio Driver 431.70 Brings 30-Bit to the Masses
Previously requiring a Quadro workstation card, NVIDIA’s latest Studio Driver (version 431.70, released today) has brought 30-bit color support to GeForce and TITAN cards for the first time.
What does this mean? If you have an application that can take advantage of 30-bit color (such as Adobe Photoshop) and a 10-bit display panel you can now enable this without a workstation GPU upgrade (a guide to enable this with Adobe applications can be found here).
"…this new NVIDIA Studio Driver introduces support for 30-bit color across all product lines, including GeForce and TITAN, for the first time, allowing for seamless color transitions without banding. With 24-bit color, a pixel can be built from 16.7 million shades of color. By increasing to 30-bit color, a pixel can now be built from over 1 billion shades of color, which eliminates the abrupt changes in shades of the same color."
