Our community forum is a fantastic place, with our users banding together to help out those of us who need assistance on various SFF related topics. Recently, user Hifihedgehog started a thread surrounding unofficial support of HDMI 2.0 with AMD’s new Raven Ridge APU platform. Whilst manufacturer specs have been vague on the situation, Hifihedgehog set out to find out exactly which motherboards support the standard with a Raven Ridge APU.
Fantastic news for Raven Ridge! Thanks to an adventurous redditor, it turns out that in at least one case HDMI 2.0 capability is, in fact, not dictated by the chipset but the processor. So some current first generation AM4 motherboards could, can, and do work with these Raven Ridge APUs, offering unhindered full specification HDMI 2.0 compatibility.
That is where you fellow forumers come in: let’s test Raven Ridge APUs and see which first generation AM4 motherboards (especially ITX and mATX, since this is SFF.net after all!) can properly display 4K at 60Hz. I will update this post to list the compatible models as you share your results here. Thank you for your help and participation.
