HDlink Pro Displayport output is 10 bits or 8 bits?

Hello.
I would like to know if the output of HDLink Pro Displayport is 10 bits or is only 8 bits, as DVI output.
I have been reading in the Blackmagic's website, but it not appears nothing about this, it's strange...
Thanks

Hi Manuel,

DVI is always limited to 8-bit as the DVI specification only allows for 8-bit. The same people who created DVI subsequently created DisplayPort which allows for deeper color and higher bit depths. However no matter whether you have a DVI, HDMI or DisplayPort port, a DVI monitor will always be limited to 8-bit.

Hi Manual,

There are implementations of 10-bit DVI over dual link but I haven't seen any thing that does so. If you use HDMI or DisplayPort output via adapters on the HDLink Pro DisplayPort, the output will be 10-bits.

Thanks. Excuse my English.
Sorry, I want to be sure if I feed a 10 bits SDI signal in HDLink Displayport, I get a 10 bits signal on input of my Eizo CG243W, is it true, doesn't?

Pardon Luke. I'm not asking about DVI, I am asking about displayport: if SDI input of HDlink Pro Displayport is 10 bits, then output via displayport is 10 bits also?
Thanks

That's correct. It is 10-bits.
