How can I enable 10-bit per color support (30-bit color) in my Geforce graphics card in programs such as Adobe Premiere Pro / Adobe Photoshop? 


NVIDIA Geforce graphics cards have offered 10-bit per color out to a full screen Direct X surface since the Geforce 200 series GPUs.  Due to the way most applications use traditional Windows API functions to create the application UI and viewport display, this method is not used for professional applications such as Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Photoshop.  These programs use OpenGL 10-bit per color buffers which require an NVIDIA Quadro GPU with DisplayPort connector.  A small number of monitors support 10-bit per color with Quadro graphics cards over DVI.  For more information on NVIDIA professional line of Quadro GPUs, please visit:
