    How does Bristol Ridge APU support HDMI 2.0 on AM4 motherboards which are limited at 1.4 version?

      Most of B350 chipset m-ATX boards specify HDMI version as 1.4. If Bristol Ridge APU supports HDMI 2.0, how does it work?

          If your worried about bristolRidge itself when placed on the board, don't be, the board and socket control the chip, not the other way around. Manufacture can reorder pins accordlying so to speak. When a APU fit s a socket then it it will run. Circuit board sockets control the varies parts of the board, that's why when a pin gets bent an a board still runs, it way have only taken out a Slot part of the board.

           

          But lets start different versions of HDMI we have 1.4,,2.0 and recently 2.1. These are oly version numbers and basically mans a different set of capabilities....

           

          1.4

          1080p 60hz

          2160 30hz

          1080p 120hz

          Original HDMI and was shipped with all hdmi in last 6 years including PS3 and XBox1 both are hdmi 1.4

           

          2.0

          4k 60 fps

          1080p FHD 120 HDR

          2160p UHD 60 HDR

           

          Handles more data and both have ARK audio return, and 3d capable,  So to sum up, the great thing that was about 2.0 is it is backward compatible to 1.4 so manufactures will have no problem using 2.0 chipsets ona 1.4 pipeline.  They will only be 1.4 and support what 1.4 is technically speaking the new AM4 boards for mATX is still only announced one is by BioStar a few others ..... I hope this was enough info it is a rather large subject.
