    Either AMD or Intel will work for your use case, but you will need fairly recent software. Ubuntu 18.04 is not going to be sufficient, unless you upgrade kernel/xorg/mesa through PPAs.

    Ryzen 2400G (Raven Ridge) will work best with the upcoming kernel 4.17: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pa...rovements-4.17
    30 bit color support needs X.org server 1.20 if used with GLAMOR acceleration https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pa...lor-30-Support
    also Mesa 18.0 is needed https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pa...s-10-bit-Color

    About Intel, I think some chips do not support 10bpc over HDMI, only over DisplayPort. Double-check if that is your intended use case. I would however prefer AMD anyway due to the better GPU.

    AMD or Intel

    Hi,
    I want to change my PC. I have two ideas: AMD AM4 Ryzen 5 2400G or Core i5 8400. I have a 4K monitor with 30bit color depth.
    If possible I need 30bit support for my monitor. I will use it for the GIMP, Inkscape and Darktable under Ubuntu 18.04.
    Which is the better for me?
Working...
