Using a workstation and a gaming graphics card on the same monitor

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi. I just bought a 10 bit monitor to replace my current one that just died, and I would like to take advantage of the 10 bits.


Right now, I have a 5500xt and, if I could, I would supplement it with a cheap firepro card, plugging the 5500 in the HDMI and the firepro in the displayport. Would that work? Can I set different programs to use different gpus? Could Lightroom autonomously use the 10 bit output?

Afaik you can just plug it into your GPU. It will act as a passthrough for the other devices. Also i think any modern GPU with displayport can output 10 bit natively.

That does seem to be the case. Thank you. I had doubts because every thread I found said only workstation cards supported it, but more recent threads do say modern gpus all support it. I will be glad to keep that money.
