NVIDIA announced at Siggraph 2019 that it has released a new version of its Studio Driver, optimized for image and video editing, that removes the artificial OpenGL restriction for its GeForce and Titan graphics cards to 8-bit per-channel color playback. With these, the 10-bit display (or 30-bit instead of 24-bit) with 1.07 billion colors, previously reserved for professional Quadro models only, is now possible - a corresponding monitor with a 10-bit panel, of course, required.
The Nvidia Studio Driver 431.70 WHQL driver is now available for all owners of a mobile or desktop GeForce or titanium graphics card - supports 10-bit display in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere Pro, Autodesk RV, Colorfront Transkoder, Assimilate Scratch and Foundry Nuke. This gives the GeForce GPUs an important function of the almost twice as expensive Quadro models.
In addition to 10-bit support, the new driver provides optimal support for the latest versions of 3D, image and video editing tools, including Magix VEGAS Pro v17, Autodesk Arnold, Blender 2.80 and Cinema 4D R21, according to Nvidia. (Thanks to Carsten for the news!)
