    this right here tells me you don't understand what i'm talking, nor have your read posted links, because 14-bit has nothing to do with the 30-bit workflow under photoshop or other applications that use a 30-bit workflow. One of the requirements for a 30-bit workflow is a professional grade card that offers 10-bit per pixel as opposed to consumer grade cards that offer 30-bit per channel. Per pixel is a lot wider than per channel. And in order to take advantage of these wider colors, you'll need a professional grade card like an nvidia quadro, or an amd firepro card. You'll also need a wide gamut monitor, an hdmi/displayport cable, and a software to use it (photoshop). what is a 30 bit photography workflow?

    my question - will/does the frontier qualify as a professional grade card in allowing a true 30-bit workflow. I suspect it does not. Does that mean its not a good card that can be used for professional use. No, it just means it may not offer a true 30-bit workflow. That's the question. What i and many are looking for in the graphic drives is this....

    Here you can see the option to enable 10-bit pixel format (10-bpp) this would be on amd's professional grade firepro cards...

    on amd's consumer grade cards (vega, r9, r7, hd, and others), you'd see this in the driver package 10-bpc...
    Attachment 154969

    for those with amd's consumer grade graphics card look at your driver package, and you'll see 10-bpc, not 10-bit per pixel. Open amd settings, click display, under color depth....

    don't know what nvidia's package says or looks like as i've never use nvidia cards, but they also have their professional graphics cards in quadro.

    And for the record, i've got an amd (sapphire) r9-fury, which is not a professional grade card, but it does what i need it to do for my photo work. This is also because i'm also an avid gamer who needs a good gaming card. If the vega frontier can bring the best of both worlds, i'd be willing to get it. Amd doesn't seem to be clear here.

    8-bit wasn't even in the conversation until you introduced it
    that is exactly what i am talking about!

    I have been looking at cases. EVGA is supposed to be coming out with a new line of cases. I just wish they were full towers instead of Mid Towers.

    All I know is it's just called the DG-77. There are, I think, supposed to be 3 of them The DG 75, 76 and 77. With Tempered glass and no 5.25" drive bays.

    See where the EVGA Logo is where the PSU goes? What if you did a small mod and changed the logo into something like this?

    Nice looking case, but I don't need tempered glass since I currently hid my case. And I would need at least one 5.25 bay for my Blu-Ray player/recorder. Regardless nice looking case, I'll have to look them up.

    A white version too. I think I got the numbers wrong.

    I just saw that exact video. Very nice. And speaking of looking at cases, I just ran into the new HAF case as well....



    I see the new thing is optical drive less cases now. I guess I'm in the minority of still using one

    Regardless, wouldn't mind having one of those, although it would also be hidden, and I'd still need an optical drive bay.
