You should do your research on DSC, and maybe compression algorithms in general, before making any judgments on compression quality. It’s totally orthogonal to chroma sub-sampling, bit depth, and frame rates.
Anyway, back to my original question, @MST1407, any indications as to when the CAC-1585 might come out?
any type of compression is going to reduce quality. And yes I could tell the difference between 8-bit 4K 120 and 10-bit 4K 98From net200777
You cannot tell the difference between 8-bit with dithering YCbCr444 / RGB and 10-bit YCbCr444 / RGB in either HDR or SDR. However with YCbCr422 / YCbCr420 subsampling, you cannot use dithering and must use 10-bit for HDR.
Thanks for the info! I was thinking that this adapter is targeted more at laptops that only have USB-C and no DisplayPort ports. Ice Lake supports DSC and DisplayPort 1.4, but I haven’t seen any info about Alt Mode. Tiger Lake is also coming out soon (probably similar August timeframe).
