Graphic Card that Supports displaying 8-bit and 24-bit images simultaneously
Can anyone tell me about some graphics card that supports displaying 8-bit and 24-bit images simultaneously irrespective of what color depth is currently selected.
I am using 'xwud' utility to display the images. I have ported the same code in Solaris and it works fine but in Linux it fails. I have been told that this is a hardware feature of multidepth framebuffering which most PC hardwares dont support.
This feature is different from Overlays feature.
If anyone know about such a Graphics card which supports this feature please let me know.
