Hi.
I preper to set PC based on i-5 13600K.
Please help me find answer is iGPU (UHD770) enough to 4K DCI or UHD single monitor (Eizo CG, Benq SW) with wide gamut and signal 10 bit/colour in OpenGL.
Ill use it to photo editing (no games)?!
I dont want to buy GPU if isnt necessary.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Basically, the processor integrated graphics is capable of what you plan. But be careful in choosing the motherboard. Please read this:

If you want to use 10 bpc color depth without HDR than you should wait a bit until this is solved:

Thanks for your replay.
As I see (based on your linked posts) if Intels GPU doesnt support native DisplayPort to show 10bit/color in 2K , shouldnt be expected it in 4K and iGPU. I think the bigger problem are APIs in OpenGL - there is no word about from Intel.
I suppose the simplest way to step ahead is using a GPU supporting OpenGL and CPU without iGPU.

Hello GDDD,  


  

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities. I understand that you have an inquiry related to the Intel® UHD Graphics 770.


  

The Intel® UHD Graphics 770 supports 4096 x 2160 @ 60Hz (HDMI) and 7680 x 4320 @ 60Hz (DP). However, to make sure your configuration will work, please provide the following: 


1. What is the brand and model name of your monitor or the one that you are planning to use?

2. Are you using HDMI 2.1 or Display Port?

3. What is the brand and model name of your motherboard or the one that you are planning to use?

4. Will you use it over 60 Hz? Or, will you use a different frequency? If so, what is the frequency wanted?

Hi Deivid.
Ill try to give answers to questions of your previous post.
Ad.1. I am plannig to purchase new monitor but model depends on offer I can get. But on radar are Eizo CG319X top used, or CS2740 new, or Benq SW321C new - I know they are completely different but I have several offers and just wait for better price.
Ad. 2. DP
Ad. 3. Not selected. Problem with connection panel of motherboards. Hard to get infos is 4k 10bpc signal available on DP (or HDMI). As I see based on MUC linked post - many of producers deliver limited output to 8bpc.
Ad. 4. 60 Hz is enough. just use it to photo editing for printig. Sometimes HD or CAD aps.
Ofcourse HD and CAD doesnt need 10 bpc but good quality prints does.

But even if iGPU will work with my inquireis, some photo apps needs OpenGL to work.
Has UHD Graphics 770 of i-5 13600K unlocked OpenGL API with 10bpc?
Thank you for your attention.
Regards

Hello GDDD, 



Thanks for your patience. I would like to let you know that the current Intel Graphics Driver sets the color depth per the OS configuration by default and this can only be manually set the color depth to 10 or 12-bit starting with Intel® Graphics Command Center version 1.100.3407.0 for native HDMI connections (if supported by the display) as it is not possible to do it via DP yet (It is a work in progress no 'ETA').


In the following link you will find a table with some resolutions and color depths, so as long as the app, monitor/TV that you are planning to use supports it there should not be issues as Intel Graphics supports 10-bit and 12-bit color depths.




If you have any questions, just let me know.

Hi Deivid A.


Thank you for your engagement.


I was reading mentioned article. But still remains question (even if use HDMI2.0 connector) of UHD Graphics 770.

Has it unlocked OpenGL API for 10bpc signal?

Article mentioned DirectX - its for games, but graphics apps sometimes works on OpenGL and that is why I am asking for so specific infos (older GPUs had unlocked OpenGL for 10bpc only in professional units).


For me its just a hobby and dont want to spend money for dedicated GPU if its not necessary.
Besides more Intel users (no gamers ofcourse) could take benefit of this conversation.


Best Regards

Hello again Deivid A.

I returned to my problem and realised (based on above article) that HDMI 2.0 connector is not enough to get good quality 10bpc image in graphics when is subsumpled 4-2-0. Degradation of edges and color accuracy make no sense to use 10bpc even in 4K.

But if You could resolve question of unlocked OpenGL in 10bpc it could help if Intels native connector in iGPU became DisplayPort.

Thanks in advance

Hello GDDD, 



In this case, OpenGL*, OpenCL*, and Vulkan* drivers must be installed separately, and are only distributed with the game or application that requires it. This means that the API support and compatibility will depend on the app or game developer.


The Intel® UHD Graphics 770 supports OpenGL 4.6, you can check the supported APIs in the following link:
