It is less useful because things like Netflix's app will be requiring HDCP 2.2 when they finally get one for your PC that supports 4k; same thing for 4k Blu-Ray. You'll be able to use the TV as a monitor, but most actual native 4k content will not play. Of course, you can always use the player onboard your TV or a dedicated external player when the time comes.Why is useless? Who cares about hdcp, I just want to use my 4k UHD as a computer monitor at 60Hz.
But whatever, no adapters still
Max video resolution and color depth
– 4Kp60Hz, RGB/YCbCr444, 8bpc
– 4Kp60Hz, YCbCr422 up to 12bpc
– 4Kp60Hz, YCbCr420, up to 16bpc
– 4Kp30Hz, RGB/YCbCr444, up to 16bpc
Yes lets hope they show up before the end of the year. Regarding the 8bit color i think that is an inherent hdmi 2.0 limitation.That sounds really promising. Now someone has to build an adapter cable around it and it would sell like hotcakes.
The only drawback I see is that it has a maximum of 8 bit color depth at RGB/YCbCr444.
There is no word regarding supported HDMI version in their official website, though...Adapter delivers 4K60 with HDMI 2.0 cable, love it. This seems to be a new version that must have the new Parade Tech chip inside (the one shown in the pictures on this product page show the old one that is only capable of 4K30). So far, I have ZERO complaints about this awesome adapter, and my company just bought 12 more!
Just ordered the adapter niea mentioned: amazon.com/aLLreLi-DisplayPort-Adapter-Gold-Plated-Connector/dp/B00ZA067MA (link credit to niea). It'll be here in the next day or two. I'll let y'all know if it actually works. Big thanks to this thread for helping me determine which adapters were bogus or not.
Thanks a lot for confirming it! I have LG 40UB800T (40UB8000) which can do up to [email protected] 4:2:0 only. So, it might just work fine with my XPS 13 (Intel HD 5500), but I'll wait until we get one with Parade Tech's chip. Hopefully, it's just around the corner.No dice. Couldn't get any of the OS's in my triple boot setup (Windows 10, El Capitan, and Ubuntu 14.04) to run 4k at 60Hz with 4:4:4 chroma subsampling. I'm a bit of a newbie to 4k displays (just got mine a month ago), but I believe the output color depth should be 12bcc instead of 8, but there is no option to up it to 12bcc at 3840x2160 (though I can use the 12bcc at 1080p - makes sense). I left a comment on the review that claims the adapter outputs HDMI 2.0 at Amazon (here: amazon.com/review/R1HNE3EKMBW0HX/ref=cm_cr_dp_cmt?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00ZA067MA&channel=detail-glance&nodeID=172282&store=electronics#wasThisHelpful), but it's largely invisible since it hasn't been upvoted.
Given the $11 price tag and no claims on the product to actually convert to HDMI 2.0, I probably should have expected this. Worth a shot though.
