Hello all

I'd need an advice: I came across a 10 bits screen 4K Viewsonic Vx2880


And of course my thoughts were immediately : WOW !! that'd be nice !!

My question is not about the product itself but the compatibility with
cinelerra and Linux in general.

We know that cinelerra can handle the 10 bits and even more with tiff
float files.
BUT ... does it display (compositor) these 10 bits ?

Upstream questions  though: 
Does even graphic drivers handle 10 bits .... 
Can  Xorg manage that ?
Does one need a top line graphic card to achieve proper colours and

Any suggestions welcomed !!
