    Could be useful for medical imaging such as x-ray where its grayscale and you need lots of detail.
    Also could be useful for HDR.

    Nice to finally see this, but too bad this wasn't done long ago.

      That is a great title for a opensource game:

      Marek & Mario: The 10-bit Adventure

          I'm now picturing a pink gay Mario that does what Mario usually does, to save his Prince Marek. With retro graphics.

            Most video cards? Well except Nvidia non-quadro's that decided to make that a Quadro only feature, despite being a requirement for OpenGL 3.

              I know, right? When I first read the first part of the title I thought it was about an old Mario game lol.

                Awesome.

                Wait....

                Crap.

                Now I need to get a 10bpc monitor.

                  Right when I'm about to buy a new 4k monitor (16:9, 32"-43", possibly with HDR and maybe USB-C).

                  Found those Philips BDM4037UW and LG 43UD79-B. They are slightly bigger that my initial target but that should be good for coding. I'll probably take the LG one.

                  But the 10 bit/HDR marketing is really confusing. The LG one only has "Color Depth(Number of Colors): 1.06Billion Color" in the specs but no HDR/HDR10. How does that differ from the LG 32UD99-W that is marketed with HDR10? I'm worried that LG 43UD79-B may only have 10bit panel but not take 10bit input. Not sure if that makes any sense.

                    Now I wonder if people named Mario dress up as Nintendo Mario for Halloween or costume parties. If I was named Mario, I would do it.
                    "Hi, I'm Mario."
                    "Nice Halloween costume."
                    "Costume? This is how I always dress."
