HDMI 2.0 Support Missing on AMD Fiji Silicon

Recommended Posts

Because not everything is about gaming. People do watch movies and TV shows on their computers. If someone wants to make an HTPC with the R9 Nano running a 4K TV, well, they can't utilize that TV at that resolution and 60Hz.

 

Just because you don't agree with an idea doesn't mean everyone else doesn't, too. There are plenty of people buying a GTX 980 or an R9 290X and playing it at 1920x1080. Is it overkill? Sure, but that doesn't stop people from doing it. It's their money to spend however they want. Do people need 4K? No. Do people need 3D? No. Do people want these? Yes.

i wasn't disagreeing just trying to understand. but my point being most of the people who can afford a $659 gpu most likely have a tv / monitor with dp anyways

im sure cutting out the hdmi had a lot to do with over all cost 

and besides if you had the option to use either you'd most likely choose dp anyways

The DP 1.2 would be fine for me and running multi 2560X1440 panels is what I would run with single card,.. but it would have been nice to see HDMI 2.0 port also,.. or DP 1.3 port to run CF with single 8k panel at 60Hz.

even with a monitor the new fiji card wont display 4k at 60H which is kinda a let down since some people buy two high or more high end cards to max out settings and have a higher refresh rate. like me I'm still waiting for a 34 inch curved monitor with 1440 support with 144h refresh rate. But my upgrade itch is taking over and I've been looking at the Dell U3415w with a pair of 980ti's.

why do you say that its one of amd main focus with this card is 4k @60hz and if you're talking about no 4k at 60 Hertz over HDMI then yes you are correct but you wouldn't use that connection anyway DisplayPort can handle 60 Hertz at 4k just fine

do you have i link backing this up or are you just guessing or just red hate mongering ?

well like you said why would people buy this high end card to display 1080p. most people buying these high end cards in pairs are mostly gaming at 4k our at least 1440. display port is nice due to daisy chaining and all but most tv's don't have display port yet so hdmi 2.0 is still a nice feature to have. what are you talking about the card will not support 4k at 60hz its listed in the specs. Apparently the AMD chip will ship with DisplayPort 1.2a connections as well as HDMI 1.4a, the latter of which is limited to 30Hz when displaying content at 4K. I don't know about you but 30hz is just to slow for me anyway hell 60hz is to slow for some people.

 

also its not my fault that amd went this way maybe it was to save money maybe they wanted the chip out sooner all I know is that the specs point to no 60hz at 4k so for me the new 390x fiji core is a no go. but for other people still gaming at 2k and below it should be perfect.

jdm_freek your points are correct, the Fury cards are designed, from ground zero for use in a gaming environment. As such the minute you throw gaming out the door the lack of this feature on the Fury is a none issue since your not gaming there is no real reason to push into a gaming enthusiast card. As for this feature not being impliented, I have no idea why it was not but for the majority of enthusiast gamers this is not really an issue since they will be using 4K monitors which is all DP for 60 Hz.

NVIDIA has HDMI 2.0 support with the GTX 900 series and TITAN X, so it's curious why AMD decided not to with the Fury cards.

That's the GTX 960, 970, 980, 980 Ti, and TITAN X.
