@noggin told me about HDMI 1.4 and 2.0 over DVI in another thread. Just wanted cross checked by all the gurus here. Smile

No HDMI 2.0 over DVI - just HDMI 1.4 I believe... (i.e. some Apollo Lake boards have HDMI 2.0 outputs fed via DP->HDMI converters, but their DVI outputs are fed from an onboard HDMI 1.4 source I believe - HDMI 2.0 carries 2160/60p but has issues with HD Audio and 3D MVC I believe, whereas HDMI 1.4 - possibly over DVI - has no 2160/60p but does HD Audio and 3D MVC OK?)

Only the mini itx versions have the DP to HDMI chip for HDMI 2.0. The link is for the J3355M which doesn't have HDMI 2.0 and is only a dual core. The J3455-itx and J4205-itx have the chip for HDMI 2.0. Also the link specs 'Supports HDMI with max. resolution up to 4K x 2K (3840x2160) @ 30Hz or 2560x1600 @ 60Hz' vs the two with the chip 'Supports HDMI with max. resolution up to 4K x 2K (4096x2160) @ 60Hz'

Anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks.

There is also the J3455B itx board, basically stripped cheaper version of J3455 itx board. That one doesn't have the dp to hdmi chip, so no pass-through issues and also plays mvc but indeed no hdmi2.0

Looked at that board as well but couldn't figure out if that\s gonna work for HD audio.
Also looking in the J4205-ITX, which is available with Amazon Prime and should be equality good as J3455-ITX?

does any one have any direct experience with these boards at all?

I have both J3455 itx and J3455b itx. Connected b version directly on it's (only) hdmi port. Connected J3455 board only via dvi to hdmi. I run 1080p output only.

On both boards no issues with hd audio, apart from sync issue, but I expect that's something else. Runs fine both under windows as well as libreelec. Didn't check sync issue on libreelec.

Also runs mvc.

If you want HDMI 2.0 you would need to choose either the j3455-itx or the j4205-itx, the j4205 is the same as the j3455 except it has a better processor and a bit better integrated graphics. Im using a j3455-itx but not with a 4k display or a receiver and have no problems at all. The only problems people had were when running at 4k 60hz they werent getting HD audio passthrough. If you read through the thread I believe that issue is (maybe) fixed on windows and possibly getting there on linux (?). The versions with B and M do not have the DP to HDMI 2.0 chip and therefore do not have HDMI 2.0 and won't display 4k at 60hz, though they do have a pcie x16 slot for a real dedicated graphics card. But to me, these boards are meant to be used with the integrated intel graphics as a decent card would significantly increase the cost of the system.

Actually they have PCIe x1 V2.0, so usage of any sort of dedicated graphics card is purely hypothetical.

Exactly! I have a spare i3 and i7 at home; for me the argument is whether I should invest in a new graphics card or a new built-in board. I know I'm not gonna get h/W decoding at the moment but no pint buying both.

The J4205-itx and J3455-itx have x1 slots, the B and M version of the 3455 board have x16 slots (at x2 speed I believe) and no DP to HDMI 2.0 chip so therfore no 4k @ 60hz. I don't physically have one but those are the specs. If you are wanting a dedicated graphics card for gaming, you should be spending a bit more on your mobo and cpu instead of one of these, imo.

Ok, didn't notice there was 3455 board with x16 slot. It sounds utterly absurd. The CPU has 6 PCIe lanes in total (!!) and it is clearly aimed at embedded applications as such. One needs some of those lanes for Ethernet, because the chip has only integrated SATA and USB and no network (unless doing something even more absurd such as hooking on-board Ethernet to one of the integrated USB ports). Now I see in the specification that M board has x1 and B board has x2 lines in the x16 slot. Can't see any meaningful application of such slot.

- Samsung UE43KU6070, no picture at all... strange
- Samsung UE48JU7580, after enabling 'HDMI UHD Color' and changing the HDMI input type to 'PC' I finally got 4:4:4.

I wish I knew this earlier.. when I could still give back my Philips TV.

Did you try 4:2:0 on the Samsung that gave you no picture? Some HDMI 2.0 TVs only accept 4:2:0 at 2160/50p and 59.94/60p.

Some people are having HDMI issues with the ASRock boards and Samsung TVs.

HDMI issue (no picture):
- UE55K6000
- UE46ES5500
- UE46F7000 (1080p)
- UE43KU6070 (europe)

No issues:
- UNxxJS7000
- UE48JU7580 (europe)

Looks like Samsung changed something in the UHD 7000+ series in terms of HDMI Wink

I'm considering to get a Gigabyte Brix unit, namely the GB-BPCE-3350.

Based on the description, it has HDMI 2.0 and able to output [email protected] Question is, did they use a DP to HDMI chip for this unit? If yes, I guess I will not have HD audio at [email protected]? But will I have HD audio for 1080p/[email protected]/50?

The N3350 should be fine for [email protected], correct?

Thanks!

There is no Intel processor/chipset with native HDMI 2.0, so there must be a LSPCON onboard (MegaChips or ParadeTech).
