    HDMI 2.1 - which gpu?

    Not even the PS5 has 2.1?

    HDMI 2.1 - which gpu?

    So, can a person get an expansion card with a USB-C connector that supports "DisplayPort Alternate Mode", get the last listed adapter, and call it a day? How do you pipe video through a USB port if your system isn't specifically built for it?

    HDMI 2.1 - which gpu?

    Ack!, Nenu, you're like Krampus at Christmas, shoving nasty coal in my stockings and making off with my kids. Well, I guess that answers that question, though I suppose I could try noko's adapter option as a stopgap measure. Knowing my luck, though, I'm probably running some old-ass version of...

    HDMI 2.1 - which gpu?

    I'm currently using an Intel igpu solution (HD 4600), so no HDR bit level is available to me. And I can't find any setting that'll let me play HDR encoded material that won't make it look almost completely color drained. I tried madVR along with mpc-hc and nothing I did worked. The file...

    HDMI 2.1 - which gpu?

    No A/V receiver on the market right now accepts DP? What!? Yeah, my state-of-the-art new QLED only has HDMI. Doesn't have a single legacy input, which I forgot was gonna be a problem, as I have a laserdisc player and a dvd recorder (I need to find a cheap s-video to HDMI converter). So, I'm...

    HDMI 2.1 - which gpu?

    Well, we're back to glorified adapters, but what about an A/V receiver? Can any take a full-fledged, modern-version DP signal with all the HDR, full quality audio, and refresh bells and whistles and transmutate it into an HDMI 2.1 one? I could use a receiver for other reasons, so that would be...

    HDMI 2.1 - which gpu?

    Ugueyeha. All my dreams are turning into 2.1 nightmares. Something tells me I should've bought a TV with DP inputs (assuming they exist). So, nobody's cpu has 2.1 HDMI as part of its igpu? Not even Intel's newest?

    HDMI 2.1 - which gpu?

    Blech. This isn't going according to plan. I thought 2.1 had been incorporated into discrete gpus generations ago. I might have to seriously pivot. What about AMD's apus? Do any of them incorporate 2.1?

    HDMI 2.1 - which gpu?

    Yeeesh. Those are the cheapest? Nothing from any prior generations, like Vega 56 or 64? All I'm looking to do is output an HDR signal to my new HDR-capable TV. I realize I can do that with HDMI 2.0, but I'd rather stick with 2.1 for personal reasons.

    HDMI 2.1 - which gpu?

    My apologies if this has been recently addressed, but what is the cheapest gpu that can be had that comes with HDMI 2.1? Gaming performance is NOT needed. I'd like to get something from nVidia, but AMD, Intel, Matrox, Tseng, etc. are all welcome. I've tried researching this myself, but the...

    Need a cheap, but "modern", GPU.

    The HTPC was (and still is) directly connected to the TV via HDMI. I know next to nothing about networking, hence why the HTPC itself is beside the TV, otherwise I would've put it in a closet somewhere and streamed things via a simple head unit. It's an el-cheepo Norco box that I changed-out...

    Need a cheap, but "modern", GPU.

    Thing is, according to this MS HDR article, you have to have HDMI 2.0 in order to achieve HDR playback. And the TV is HDR10 certified, so I'm 99.9% positive the TV has HDMI 2.0 inputs. I've got some HDR content I'm itching to try, as right now, everything has that washed-out look since I'm...

    Need a cheap, but "modern", GPU.

    Hi guys. My beloved Samsung 67" DLP finally kicked the can recently, so I had to get a quick replacement. My local Costco had a good deal on a QN75Q6DRAFXZA with white glove shipping, so it's now sitting in my house. Thing is, it's FAR more modern than the motherboard to which it is attached...

    A partial failure possible?

    Last report - the 1050 Ti install went great. Heaven runs fine along with A:I. As a mild bonus, the 1050 series doesn't require a separate cable, as it can run directly from PCIe power. I'm not entirely sure what to do with the ailing 970. I could keep it to use when testing motherboards...

    A partial failure possible?

    I looked at the chips under the thermal pad block and couldn't see anything awry. Replaced the pads, but the failure persists. So, I cheesed-out and bought a new 1050Ti. Even the 1060s I looked at were flapping around in the ionosphere. I know there are plenty of used cards that can be had...
