Gtx 1050ti for 40" 4K tv?? What HDMI needs to be bought??
So I was looking to purchase a GTX 1050TI for my current pc which is connected to my 4K Samsung 6400 40" tv. My current graphics card (an old AMD one) only goes up to 1080p and therefore doesn't take advantage of the full TV res. I mainly watch movies and 4K content on YouTube so no gaming at all. My main question is what HDMI lead would I have to buy i.e. 1.4 or 2.0, I'm confused? & will the 1050ti be sufficient for 4K movies/ streaming? (My internet connection is good) I know nothing about all this so any help would be appreciated, thanks!
Both HDMI 1.4 and 2.0 can support 4K but 1.4 is limited to 30 Hz (30 FPS) whereas HDMI 2.0 can sustain 4K at 60 Hz (60 FPS) so if you do any streaming at 4K 60 FPS (i assume this as unlikely) you'll done fine with a HDMI 1.4 cord but you can go the HDMI 2.0 if you want to leave your options open for the future. A GTX 1050 Ti should be well more than capable for watching movies and streaming video at 4K on your TV provided your Internet is up to the task (you said it is). Hope this helps
