Msi gtx 980/970 HDMI port only 1.4a?
« on: 21-September-14, 16:24:14 »

Should i cancel my GTX970 order because every other board partner and even reference cards have HDMI 2.0?
 Whats going on?

I just bought the MSI GTX 970 and hooked it up to my 4K display via HDMI and I'm still getting that colour loss like my old GTX 670. Very disappointed or either that I'm doing something wrong.

I've contacted MSI regarding this. Seems like an error since they haven't said that it is 1.4a, instead they've forwarded this to the right department.

I am not quite sure, but for HDMI 2.0 you also need the right HDMI cable  :biggthumbsup:

yes, don't take the cable lightly, there is definitely a difference in hdmi cables, older cables (< 2.0), look the same but definitely are different.

Never mind, I finally got full colour at 4K in 60Hz with my GTX 970, it appears I plugged my cable into the wrong HDMI port.

I can confirm that the MSI GTX 970/980 does indeed have HDMI 2.0 support and it works great.

Ok thanks for confirmation on this.

Topic made sticky so all can see since MSI hasn't added this up on Global yet.
