Yeah you are right, somehow 16bits was in the back of my head.loboris wrote:This is not true.Vader_Mester wrote:The ILI4988 is actually 16bit color. Even if you send color in 24 bit mode, it will ignore the lower 3bits of red and blue and the lower 2bits of green.
It is in the datasheet, but don't remember where exactly.
Look at Data sheet page 122.
I would prefer the 24bit method anyway, cause it is indeed faster to crunch, if your source data is also 24bits.
