I'm having an issue with playing back a 4k mkv file (using vlc player) on my pc. I have 2 pcs
1. A 3570k with a 980ti, 8gb ram
2. Fx 8350 with a 1080ti, 8gb ram
I know these are similar cpu in terms of generation and release date and I've always though the 3570k comes rated as the superior of the two but what I can't understand is why the 3570k build nearly dies playing the 4k file (chugs at a few fps if that) whilst the fx runs fine?
The 3570k is connected to my 4k tv and is most used as a htpc/vr build. Whilst the fx is my main gaming build in a different room.
Is there a reason for this bizarre behaviour? I put it down to the low core count of my 3570k (thought maybe it couldnt churn through the data quick enough or something) and so didn't expect the fx do do better but it runs fine.
Any ideas how to get it running on the 3570k system?
have you tried using Media Player Classic – Home Cinema, as i had some troubles playing large files on my 4670 and it had no problems whereas VLC had many
