It's all wrong what you said, but I know what you mean. Yes. The U2410 has a 8-bit panel. But thanks to it's 10-bit Look Up Table, and 12-bit color processor, it supports 10-bit colors, which it can display. Basically 12-bit processor is "2-bit too big"... probably this is what Dell was able to get at a good price, or provide a good performance. So basically what happens, is, well we know how those TN panel which are all 6-bit panels do to output 16.7 million colors (8-bit colors). They take 2 colors it can produce and switch between them to emulate the color it can't produce. This is called Frame Rate Control. Well the U2410 does the same thing.. but for extra color that the panel can't produce. So the 8-bit colors are produces normally, no Frame Rate Control on that... and for all colors part of the 10-bit and NOT in 8-bit colors pallet, it uses Frame Rate Control. It is to be noted, that to enjoy 10-bit colors, you need 10-bit color compatible GPU (which you have), but also the software. PhotoShop for example, does support 10-bit colors. But your Windows background and games... not so much. Oh and you need to be using DVI or Display Port.
