4k+60Hz+HDR

Go to solution Solved by --SID--,

On Vega 11 only Displayport supports 4K60 + HDR.

Hi there,

I'm pretty much at 0 knowledge about all this. I got a new TV (Sony A80J) and I'm running a HTPC to watch movies/series/youtube/...

Specs on the PC are:

Gigabyte B450M S2H AMD B450 So.AM4

AMD Ryzen 5 3400G 4x 3.70GHz So.AM4

 

currently I'm connected with a "high quality" cable (rated for 8K) from my PC to the HDMI3 input on the TV. But in Windows I can only go for 4K + HDR + 30Hz. As soon as i go to 60Hz HDR will be disabeled.

 

Do I have to adjust something on the TV itself? Is it a problem of the GPU (RX Vega 11 / Ryzen APU)?

As far as i understand I would need at least HDMI 2.0 which APU and Mainboard both support.

Is it worth upgrading to a dedicated GPU like a GTX1050ti?

So because my Mainboard only supports HDMI, I need to upgrade to a dedicated GPU?

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

 

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

I also have the A80J - issues like this are one of the reasons I ditched a Windows-based HTPC ages ago. Dealing with 4K, HDR, refresh rate, and DRM issues was just a massive headache. So I use an Xbox One S as a dedicated media box over HDMI, and I have no issues with 4K + HDR.

 

I know that many people, even with the correct supported hardware, have issues getting 4K + HDR + 60Hz working on a PC. Best of luck, and if you do get it working, please share your experience!
