  1. I have several videos in 10 bit, but how can I be sure to watch the files in true 10 bit on my screen? Are there any test files or anything else I can do to test it?

  2. Thank you, sneaker, I saw you already in many other places
    Does HDMI 2.0 allow 3840x2160 with 60 Hz in 4:4:4 with 10 bit color depth? Cannot find a real answer...

    ... reading the doom9 thread ...

  4. Ok, I see. What is the maximum to get out of HDMI 2.0?

    3840x2160 / 60Hz / 10 bit color depth
    -> Which pixel format?

    What is the difference of the supported pixel formates:
    YCbCr 4:2:0
    YCbCr 4:2:2
    YCbCr 4:4:4
    RGB 4:4:4 (Full RGB)
    RGB 4:4:4 (Studio RGB)

    With HDMI 2.0 only 4:2:0 10 bit or 4:2:0/4:2:2 12 bit.

    (I don't know about 4:2:2 10 bit. Going by bandwidth it should work but it seems to not be specified. Maybe it works as a custom resolution anyways in practice.)

    You need a monitor capable of outputting a 30bit signal (10bits per color channel), note NOT 24bit or 32bit which is actually referring to 3 8bit channels and Alpha, and you need a graphics card that is capable of outputting same, via DX Geforce cards have been able to do it since the GTX285 days but if you're using OpenGL you will need a Quadro.

    Same holds true for AMD cards, you will need a FirePro if you want to output a 10bit signal via OpenGL.
