Has anyone been able to get the following working on a 4k TV: 4k @ 60Hz HDR @ 12bpc Color Depth & 4:4:4 Pixel Format? I keep getting only 30Hz

Jump to solution

LG 43UJ6200 TV

Power Colour RX480 8GB

Radeon Software Version: 19.4.1

CPU: Xeon X5675 O.C to 4.2 Ghz

HDMI 2.0 Cable 6ft (no adapters)

Microsoft Windows 10 Professional (x64) Build 17763.437 (1809/RS5)

Disabling HDMI Link assurance seems to get rid of the video distortion i was seeing with HDR enabled & a pixel rate above 4:2:0 & Color Depth above 8bpc. I still can't get 60Hz though, it always drops to 30Hz when I go above those settings.

Also, Windows allows me to set 59Hz or 60Hz but when I check AMD settings it goes back to 30 Hz for some reason.

CNET is using a confusing chart here. Yes, HDMI 2.0b is capable of 4k with 60hz and 10/12bit HDR, but only with 4:2:2 or 4:2:0 chroma subsampling. If you want 4:4:4, you will need to use a lower refresh rate, like 30hz.

This is due to bandwith limitations of HDMI 2.0 a/b, wich has a peak bandwith of 18Gbit/s for video and audio. See the handy charts here.

The RX480 has an HDMI 2.0 interface with a bandwith of 18GBit/s wich is not enough to drive 4k @ 60Hz @ HDR(>=10bit/channel) @ 4:4:4.

Reduce the chroma subsampling to 4:2:2 or 4:2:0.

Regarding your disortions:

Do you use a really long cable?

Is it a high quality cable?

The longer the cable, the better the quality should be, or you will see distortions (like weird colored bars or blackouts). I´ve got these distortions too while I was unsing my RX580. With the R VII, these problems are gone.

2.0b supports 4k 60Hz according this & other sources:

These are just extensions to allow for (2.0a) HDR with static metadata and (2.0b)HybridLogGamma(HLG) HDR. They do not raise the bandwith available for transmission of video data.

Thanks for the clear & detailed explanation. I will attempt to use the settings from Acoustic Frontiers' charts & share my results.

Also, Acoustic Frontiers seems quite impressive, thanks for putting me on to them.

UPDATE

I changed cards to a MSI Armour RX580 & bought a Toptrend 4k HDMI cable off Amazon.

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01HFFCDU2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I was able to get 4:4:4 (Full RGB) @ 12bpc & 30Hz with no artifacting.

I was able to get the 60Hz with 4:2:2 @ 8pc also with no artifacting.

I will try the RX480 again @ a later date to see if it was just the cable that made the difference.

I was able to achieve the same with the RX480, 4:4:4 (Full RGB) @ 12bpc & 30Hz with no artifacting.

Even though I was not able to achieve the desired 60Hz at least I was able to identify that the cable was causing the artifacting & instability i was experiencing.

What’s the monitor you’re using with these settings?
