Graphik Card for 8K ?

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.
