    Graphik Card for 8K ?

    by pele2010 » Tue Sep 18, 2018 4:19 pm


    which graphic card should I use on a mac to be able to play 8K video smoothly?

    Any suggestions on this topic?

    Has anybody tested it?

    I checked 4K on an iMac 2017 and the video is not running smoothly.

    And which codec should I use? HAP with 8K or 4K?
    Or H265?

    I tested H265 and I am not sure if the performance of an I7 is enough.

    kind regards Peter

    On macOS, HAP is the best. I can play much more than 8k on a MacBook Pro mid-2013. On Windows HAP will be hardware decoded in MadMapper 3.6 (next update).
    Actually HapQ is not hardware decoded so use basic HAP codec. HapQ will be hardware decoded on both macOS & Windows in MadMapper 3.6.
