Graphic Card for Wide Gamut Displays.

Hello All,

I need technical info, what configuration of graphic card we should select for wide gamut monitors for Photography Post production purpose, not for gaming/video. using Photoshop CS6.

monitor configuration is - AH-IPS 16:9 2560 x 1440, 99% Adobe RGB Color,10-bit color, 14 bit internal LUT.

please give me hint what configuration of graphic card should give maximum result in my work.

Thank you in advance.

Ashish

Re: Graphic Card for Wide Gamut Displays.

Assuming your display accepts a 10 bit signal and you are on Windows, you can check for supported cards on Adobe's site. I don't have the link handy.

If you're on a Mac/running OSX, you cannot obtain support without installing El Capitan and photoshop creative cloud. CS6 doesn't have this feature on OSX.

Re: Graphic Card for Wide Gamut Displays.

If you want to take full advantage of 10 bit display then there are only two ranges to consider either Nvidia Quadro or AMD FirePro. Other cards of course work very well even without access to 10 bit pipeline I use a Nvidia GTX 960 4GB without issue

Thank you Tony,

I'm wondering if in graphic card specification it is mentioned that it supports 10 bit pipeline. that's the point where I need to look about it.

Re: Graphic Card for Wide Gamut Displays.

The Quadro and FirePro do support full 10 bit you must use the DisplayPort connector. Which one to go for depends on how deep your pockets are and if any other application you may have special requirements.

Just taking Nvidia I would be looking at the K620 minimum or better K2200

For the moment ignoring AMD FirePro which did have some issues not playing nicely with Adobe products - the issues may be resolved by new drivers but I do not kniw

It's a trivial difference. Tony's information is also misleading. Several of the cards in those lines are not marked as supported (there was a list somewhere for CS6, Creative Cloud is different). They might work anyway, but it's misleading.

I tried to explain in the first part that you need the model of the display and the model of the card. You need to cross reference the card with photoshop as well, not CC but CS6. Otherwise it just goes to 8 bit per channel data paths. That looks fine too, but it's not what you seem to want.

Upgrades between cards are a waste of money if you have the correct features. You won't gain anything valuable.

Here's an example of a working setup. That's actually a much older firepro card. I know the quadros weren't working for a long time. I may have to look at AMD's site.

And klev should really check his facts before mouthing off!!

The card numbers relate to series therefore you will find that 600 and 2000 series include those mentioned as compatible
