Is there such a thing as a video card capable of Deep Color?

I know there are video cards that display True Color (24 bit color), but are there any video cards that display Deep Color (30, 36 and 48 bit color)?

"The ATI FireGL™ 3D Workstation Graphics Accelerators support 16-bit per RGB channel (48-bit color). ""Beyond true color"" video is typically used for HDRI applications (high dynamic range imaging).

Microsoft announced that color depths of 30-bit and 48-bit would be supported in Windows 7 if you have a video card that supports 48-bit color and a monitor that supports 48-bit color using hdmi 1.3.

Here are a few articles I found about monitors supporting HDR and 48-bit images:

Sunnybrook HDR displays 40,000:1 resolution

BrightSide DR37-P HDR display

SIM2 Solar Series HDR LCD Monitor"
