Description

How to find out if your Intel® Graphics device supports a display with 10-bit color depth.

Resolution

Intel Graphics does support 10-bit and 12-bit color depths (known as deep color). On our current driver implementation, the color depth will be set as per the OS configuration.

Normally it's possible to enable HDR (High Dynamic Range) and WCG (Wide Color Gamut) which would configure the Operating System for higher color depths by going to Windows > Display settings > Windows HD Color. If the content you're trying to view is 10-bit, switch to Full Screen mode, and the driver will automatically switch to the higher color depth, given HDR and WCC are enabled. This is also true for most DirectX applications.

NoteIt's important to know that the Operating System, application being viewed, and driver will determine which is the best mode to display dynamically. The user can see the graphics settings in Windows, however, there is no way for the user to manually change these settings.
