    Is this 4k stable?

    So I made some minor improvements to my current build, upgraded from the MARS 760 to a STRIX 1080 A8G. But it got me wondering,
    I can game in 4k, but can I watch content from amazon, netflix and others in 4k, or will i need to ugrade the processor (4770k) to kabylake for that codec?

    Any advice would be appreciated, especially if theres a scam/any credibility to hdmi 2.0 cables as well.

    Hi veovis !

    Wow I bet you can play Doom at the highest settings now, what a nice upgrade.

    If you're using hdmi you'll want an hdmi 2.0 cable for 4k at 60Hz, you should be able to view or play anything in 4k as long as it's supported.

    Not yet you can't, Netflix is going to support Kabylake but I believe you would have to view from the iGPU not Nvidia and hdmi 2.0 cable, 4K TV, as no monitors are compliant that I know of, hopefully some day soon

    I'm currently using display port, forgot to add that information. (Mad Max explosions look amazing!)

    I haven't figured a way to test 4K video reliably yet save for a quick youtube search on it (and it says it's streaming at 2160p) and it certainly looks less blurry than 1080 but I can't tell if it's 1440 or 2160 (Darn my eyes!)

    I have amazon prime, so I'll give it a test to see if PRIME VIDEO's 4k content can be streamed via desktop. I'll keep you posted if it works.

    Update: It doesn't. HVEC appears to be a hardware security thing so far. So no idea if I can trick amazon into thinking my 4770k is "4k ready" Looks like it's HD "540 upscale" for me in the meantime.
