Has anyone played around with 16 bit colour equipped pixels... is the increased amount of colours noticeable?

by the looks the additional data comes at quite a refresh rate cost.. no idea what additional limitations it places on controllers...

thoughts?

I've played with the TLS3001 which is a 12 bit chip for each colour, the smoothness of fades at the low end is impressive but the question is do we need it?

I was hoping that the internal gamma mapping of the GS8202 would give a good compromise between the colour performance of the TLS3001 without needing to sacrifice refresh rate...

does it off any benefit over the 12 bit brightness control the GS offers? I imagine the enhanced control over each colour might make very slow colour transitions even smoother... ? tempted to ask Ed as all his stuff is 16 bit colour (from what I can see)
