CAC-1170 won’t do 4:4:4 at 4K

Hello,

I’m running Fedora 25 on Lenovo T460p with Intel HD Graphics 530 in processor and NVIDIA GeForce® 940MX. When I use CAC-1170 I’m able to get 3840×2160 at 30 HZ and even at 60 HZ but definitely not with 4:4:4 color sampling. However when I use Lenovo reduction I’m able to get 3840×2160 @30 HZ with 4:4:4 sampling.

Any idea why CAC-1170 won’t do 4:4:4 even @30 HZ?

Thanks!

When running in 3840×2160 at 60Hz in 4:4:4 the BPC needs to be at 8Bit BPC otherwise the signal will get too big …

HDMI2.0 has 18Gbps of bandwidth …

Please also check if your screen can do 4:4:4 at 4K 60 Hz, not all screens can do that …

I have not found anyone that could successfully do 3840×[email protected] in 4:4:4 mode using Intel HD graphics over DP>HDMI 2.0.

My previous post is wrong, it can work.
What TV are you using?

Please check if your TV has the “HDMI UHD Color” setting. It enables UHD 60Hz 4:4:4. Unfortunately I remember reading the the 6070 series doesn’t have this option.

They do have and I had it enabled. I also used the right HDMI port as only one was supposed to handle 4k @60Hz

Hi Preichl,

Thanks a lot.
Running on Nvidia Kepler based graphics would indeed be a challenge to say the least. If the Notebook can also run on the Intel Graphics only, so with Nvidia Graphics Disabled completely, it should be able to work. The Intel 530 Graphics can do it, which would only leave you needing a decnt linux driver for HD 530 …
