    i lost around 5 fps in Destiny 2 with HDR on. i also found that you do not have to have HDR turned on in Windows for it to work in games. just have 4:2:2 and 10 bit in the video control panel.

    is there a new consensus as to what PC settings we should be using now? i have used RGB, 8bit, and full for over a year. with the implementation of HDR in Windows i'm considering going with 4:2:2 and 10bit for gaming. thoughts? edit: also, does anybody have TV settings for 4:2:2, 10-bit...

    in Nvidia control panel you need the following settings: 3840x2160; 60hz 32-bit color depth YCbCr422 color format 10bpc color depth after applying those settings Windows should automatically turn on HDR. you can confirm by everything looking like crap and by right clicking on desktop and going...

    make sure you go into the tv settings and turn off all "eco" and "power saving" features. also make sure you don't have "adaptive brightness" turned on in the Windows power settings.

    the emulator is about 80% CPU dependent so the GPU is sitting there with little to do. most people see a difference (if any) of 1 or 2 fps loss in going from the game's native 720p to 4k. Nintendo has become a master of using distinct art style in textures to hide the lack of power their systems...

    there are still a few hiccups and random crashes here and there but easily playable. i played 2.5 hours last night and the only issue i had was the stasis trial was running at 60fps instead of 30 so everything was going crazy fast. saved the game and put a 30fps cap on it using Rivatuner and...

    if any of you are in to emulators... Zelda BotW running at 4k using CEMU looks FANTASTIC on this TV! with minimal "tweaking" i'm getting solid 30fps at 4k on an i5 4670k OC'd to 4ghz, 16gb ram, and a 980Ti (the gpu makes little difference as long as it is Nvidia). if you have the CPU headroom...

    i'm a PC guy first without question. that said, i'm blown away by what they were able to do with that game on limited console hardware. it looks as good as AAA PC titles cranked to the max.

    i've had this TV (6300) since September. i have a PS4 Pro, Xbox One S, and PC with a 980Ti. i previously had a 1440p 27" monitor. i was afraid that going from 1440p to 4k wouldn't be that "big" of a jump. i thought most of the people raving about it were very impressed as they were going from...

    make sure you have "full" color depth on in Nvidia control panel and "HDMI black level" to "normal" on the tv. and if you go back to PC mode make sure sharpness is at 50. that equals 0 in pc mode for some reason.

    that sounds like an HDCP handshake issue and is probably due to your hdmi cable. try a different cable if you can. i've had the 6300 paired with a 980Ti (always with most recent drivers) and have never had that issue.

    i wonder what the percent is of people that use "movie" or "resolution" mode over "performance". they seem so sluggish. i can't imagine playing an entire game for several hours that way. if anything it would finally put to rest that stupid claim fps over 24 doesn't matter to people. even in...

    add Horizon Zero Dawn to the list of games that really show what this screen can do. it has HDR and 4k(ish) resolution if you're on a Pro. i always prefer fps over resolution on the Pro. even with that setting, it still looks fantastic. easily the best looking console game i've seen. if only it...

    ah, i see. i haven't personally used one but have seen several people on here discuss them. one thing is certain, DP adapters are not all created equal. seems most people were having success with the Club3d adapter on Amazon. just make sure you get an "active" one as the "passive" ones do not work.

    you just need a high speed hdmi cable. the 1080 fully supports hdmi 2.0. the Amazon "basic" hdmi cables work great. i have a 980ti and get 4k@60hz with 4:4:4 using HDMI.

    if the TV menu text has the same problem, sounds like you have a bad set. make sure you are on 60hz. 30hz caused all kinds of crazy problems on mine. and make sure you are on 3840x2160 and not 4096x2160.

    1. yes. and note, not all hdmi cables claiming to be 2.0 (18gbps) are. a few people in this thread could not get 4:4:4 and/or 60hz at first but simply switching to a different cable resolved their problems 2. just select "PC" for HDMI 1. make sure you are on HDMI 1 as it is the only HDMI input...

    oh, def the 30hz. my Nvidia control panel switched to 30hz a couple of times after driver updates and it was unbearable for the couple of minutes it took me to figure out what had happened. i can't imagine trying to actually use this thing at 30hz.

    did you try higher than 10 backlight? i'm not positive, but i thought i read that PWM kicked in AT 10 and lower.

    HDR+ is a Samsung setting to add an "HDR-like" effect to non-HDR material. it is not available in PC mode as it adds processing and would increase input lag. most seem to think it is not good.

    there have been several good deals this week. the KS8000 was on sale with Samsung EPP 55" for ~$729, 65" $1,080. Super Bowl week is always one of the best times to buy a TV. the problem with the KU6300/6290 is that it is already an older model that has seen at least 3 big inventory reduction...

    the DP to HDMI "active" adapters are not all created the same. this is made obvious by their price range from $10 to $100+ USD. many people have had issues with various adapters in this thread. i think most people were having the best luck with the Club 3D version on Amazon ($30 USD). i can not...
