      10-bit color per channel support on ATI Radeon HD 5000 Series

      I'm not sure if this is correct place for this consultation, I have exhausted all other ways to contact ati/amd, so please, if no the correct place, my apologies.

      I would like to make a technical consultation on the graphic card ATI Radeon™ HD 5870 Graphics , I'm thinking of buying this card, but I have a technical question. I know this model has a DisplayPort output, my the idea is to connect this graphics card to my display, an EIZO CG243W display to his DisplayPort input and have support for 10 bit per channel color deep .

      My question is, provides the Display Port output of this card model a density of 10-bit color per channel (Full 30-bit Display Pipeline, just like the ATI FirePro family)? It makes sense to use the displayport output of the ATI Radeon™ HD 5870  for a full 10-bit color per channel?


      If not, please, anybody know what "consumer" ati cards , other than the proffesional FirePro Series support a full 10-bit color per channel?


      Thank you very much and best regards,

      Miguel Angel.
