    I currently cannot display UHD 60fps on HMDI 2.0 from my Asus Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming MB (


    It am able to output UHD 30fps so far.


    I am running kernel v4.4.2 (Linux test-desktop 4.4.2-040402-generic #201602171633 SMP Wed Feb 17 21:35:10 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux)


    The latest version of the Intel Graphics Drivers cannot be installed due to an issue with the GPG signature so I am waiting for this to be fixed to check if the newer driver would allow the 60fps for UHD on HMDI 2.0.

    Hi Perig!


    I have the same Mainboard (Asrock Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming-ITX/ac) and had quite some fight to get video out to work. With 4K@60Hz I have an unusable image (flickering, more blackscreen than actual content - unusable). I've now set res to 1080p and wait for driver improvements.

    Do you get the 4K @30Hz on the HDMI2.0 or HDMI1.4 connector? Is it usable/flickerfree?


    I think I had also trouble with 30Hz but don't remember and am away from my HTPC right now...


    I'm curious because I cannot get anything on the HDMI 1.4 connector (above DP) - always "no signal" - even at 720p or lower. The connector only works until Grub. After that - nothing.


    Well. seems like early adopters are forced to be patient sometimes...

    Hi all,


    Small Update from here:


    I've discovered that enabling HDMI ULTRA HD DEEP COLOR Option on my LG TV makes xrandr list the 60Hz.


    But: As long as that's enabled, I get 60Hz displayed, tv shows 60Hz input - but flickering destroys usability completely.

    Interesting side-note: neither 30Hz nor 23,98Hz work in 4K resolution with the HDMI ULTRA HD DEEP COLOR setting enabled.



    So I've the choice between 60Hz flickering and 30Hz - how ironic.


    without ultra hd deep color

    kernel is 4.5 intel-next from ubuntu kernel repos installed on a steamos brewmaster.base.
    For now I live with 30Hz - movies are ~24Hz anyways and since 60Hz is unusable with that flicker ....
