I have a 10 bit wide gamut monitor. I use a Firepro 5100 graphics card. Are there any cards that would significantly improve performance with photography apps, like Lightroom and Canon DPP? My PC is a first generation Core i7 950 , 3.07 GHz, 24 GB memory.
My monitor is a NEC PA301 WSV. It requires connection via Displayport for 10 bit color. Is Displayport going to be around in the future? Does Thunderbolt do 10 bit color (with other 10 bit monitors)?
