AFAIK external scan doublers are exactly the same hardware as internal ones. The internal ones just get the signal before being routed to the 23-pin connector. It makes them more "aesthetically" pleasing for use in towers but are functionally the same.

No "cheap" scandoubler can offer 24-bit I fear. All the existing silicon I've seen is for the TV market and uses a 16-bit (565) input which is more than good enough for analogue TV. A custom solution would be prohibitively expensive. Unless someone can find one that does 24-bits?

They could buy one, or one could be included.
