Will Pascal GTX 1070 support video output and computing > 8 bit?
I’m planning to buy the gtx 1070, I need a “budget” GPU that I could use with software such as “Davinci Resolve” and “Lightroom”.
I shoot photos and video in “raw” file format. This kind of pictures have a high quality of dynamic range. Between 12 bit and 16 bit.
Please I ask you to take a look to this short guide that may explain to you what I’m talking about.
Baically I wish to be sure that if I buy the GTX 1070 I will be able to edit with a dynamic range > than 8bit.
That link explaing that to do this I need a special monitor, cable, and a gpu that support this technology.
If you need a software to make a test, benchmark:
- you can download Davinci Reslove Lite here (is for free): https://www.blackmagicdesign.com
You can download a Video in raw here to make a test: choose one from here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjJee-JAzoRRH5T0wqe7_tw/videos
the link to download it is in the description of the youtube video.
For still images you can download Lightroom here: https://lightroom.adobe.com/
free raw photos here to test: https://www.rawsamples.ch/index.php/en/canon
You need a monitor that support > 8bit dynamic range, remember to read here if you are confused about it: http://www.diyphotography.net/8-bit-vs-16-bit-color-depth-use-matters/
Let me know please, this info is very important for me. I hope it works because I have budget problems I can’t spend a lot of money for a GPU (the 1070 is not “economic” for me but close to what I could buy). Another factor is that I wish to use the GPU to make both: work and play videogames. So I hope 1070 will fit very well.
Thx for reading.
