NVidia GTX970 and GTX980 has HDMI 2.0 output.

I really do need to update my desktop computer one day since I still have the ancient GTX470. It was a highly regarded card for Adobe Premiere Pro at that time.

Getting one of these cards along with an HDMI 2.0 capable Sony TV and the 2160 60p Panasonic X1000 would be sweet. I gotta play some lottery tickets.

Prices aren't bad. $330 for the GTX970 and $550 for the GTX980.

My ASUS laptop has an HDMI out. I don't use it much, but it is handy if there is something on the "net" that I want to play on my TV.

My 6-Core Mac Pro could run two 4K 60Hz monitors at the same time using two of the six Thunderbolt 2 ports connected to 4K 60hz monitors or 4K UHD TVs with DisplayPort 1.2 ports . I currently use the HDMI 1.4 port to my 4K 30Hz UHD TV.

It isn't the fact that it has HDMI output that makes the GTX970/GTX980 cards special since a lot of cards already have it, it's the fact that they are HDMI 2,0 which can allow 2160 60p to go though. That's a big deal.

The newest Display Port already did that but not every 2160 60p TV will have a Display port.

Be careful when buying a GTX 970 or 980, it's been stated by an NVIDIA rep that while the 900 series GPUs are capable of supporting HDMI 2.0, it's up to the graphic card manufactures whether they support it or not.

I think there may have been some confusion by the rep. All GTX 970 and 980 cards/GPUs, if an HDMI port is available, will be HDMI 2.0. I believe there is only one DisplayPort to HDMI 2.0 adapter that has the proper bandwidth to send a proper HDMI 2.0 signal but if you just need HDMI 2.0, just make sure that card you purchase has an HDMI port.

Explain to me why it is then that MSI lists their GPUs as HDMI 1.4 compatible and multiple MSI GPU owners are complaining that they can not get 4K@60 4:4:4?

What UHDTV? We are seeing issues with some Samsung 4K UHDTVs.
