Smooth 4k playback. Clock speed vs memory?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Im trying to help someone piece together a system which will be primarily used to watch 4k content and browse the web. When it comes to the videcard, what is most important for smooth playback of files and also on 4k bluray playback? What would be the most important part when it comes to scrolling(?) through video smoothly?
I was thinking about a 1050ti 4gb?

Current part list,but may change:
7700k or maybe 7600k
960 evo m.2
650w psu

Thanks

I'd drop from 7700K to a R5 1600 and get a better GPU. Just my 2 cents.

Edit> That price diff would bump you from a 1050ti to a 1060 6GB just FYI

Thanks for the quick reply. Apparently there is only one uhd bluray drive on the market and it requires a 7th gen Intel processor for everything to work properly. From what I understand, I hope I'm wrong. I believe Netflix also requires kaby lake for 4k playback. The drive is a pioneer BDR-211UBK

A quick google and this stuff is a mess on PC wow... Netflix 4K can't be done via dGPU? I hope I read stuff wrong. Either way I'll have tto defer to someone who actually knows what they are talking about. But I'll have to read into this, sounds like a hot mess of DRM nightmare...

4k video playback is actually not that big of a deal compared to 4k gaming. Although i have no experience with 4k uhd blu ray playback on pc but i'm pretty sure even the integrated graphics on a kaby lake processor should handle 4k video playback. No discrete gpu required. I would try that first, and if for some reason it doesn't work, a 1050 will definitely do 4k video playback.

I'm pretty sure the phillips 4k uhd bluray drive requiring kaby lake to work, also has it in mind that it will be using the integrated graphics for video playback as well. I should just work like that.

The next question would be do kaby lake motherboards have hdmi 2.0/display port?

found this thread with some info on hdmi 2.0 motherboards: https://forums.evga.com/Motherboard-with-integrated-HDMI-20a-or-DP-14-out-m2626204.aspx

it seems like you HAVE to use the integrated graphics due to DRM. A discrete gpu will not work. Which means you need to find a motherboard with the proper DRM over hdmi 2.0a.

LOL this is why there's only one of these drives in existence. the DRM on 4k blu rays is just insane

At this point, you're better off just buying an xbox one s.
