      Uh? I thought the max resolution supported was 720p, only IE had 1080p...

      AMD: X1950XTX, HD3870, HD5870
      Intel: GMA45, HD3000 (Core i5 2500K)

        BDM3270 is only 8bit+FRC, not 10bit

          My bad. You're right, of course. I got my "p's" wrong here. Lol

            Perhaps, but Intel hardware didn't have the ability to output it until recently. AFAIK it has been working for a long time in FBOs.
            For Intel GPUs >8bpc display support has been present in the hardware since 2008-2009.

              My SandyBridge from 2011 does not have it. I believe they have been able to work on the format internally, but just haven't been paired with display-port standards that could actually output it.

                I do believe that is wrong.
                According to TFTCentral (and other sites by the looks of it), the Philips BDM3270QP uses a 32"WS AU Optronics AMVA (M320DVN01.0) panel.

                That panel is a 10bit AMVA panel (see table below for stats)

                  I wouldn't be surprised, as TV postproduction houses used up to 10-bit and digital film editing used 12-bit log or 16-bit linear - even in the 90's.

                  In fact, I've been hearing about >= 10-bit on PCs for probably a decade? For instance, I see the Radeon HD 5000 series of 2010 even supported 12-bit:

                    Wrong question. The relevant point would be how many SGI boxes one had at home, two decades ago.

                      No, it's definitely there. For DP we can do 6,8,10,12 bpc, and for HDMI 8,12 bpc.
