Review

Had to get a new Startech HDMI cable as my old generic one was giving me blinking black screen after swapping cables it works perfectly. it seems its a little picky on the cables

The Crimson Additional settings are missing pixel format and overscan option, hope this can be fixed by firmware or driver update

Customer Support

when i asked about a firmware update they responded in 14 minutes. Now thats pretty fast

First setup

  • Get a High Quality 4K Cable Club3D CAC-1310 or Startech HDMM1MP
  • Turn off UHD Colour on Samsung TV
  • Set Colour Depth in Crimson Additional Settings to 8bpc
  • Set Resolution to 3840 by 2160, True Color (32 bit), 60 Hertz in Settings > System > Display Advanced Settings > Display Adapter Properties > List Modes

still issues? try a newer crimson driver

My Setup:

  • AMD A10-7800 APU
  • 16GB RAM (2x8GB 1866mhz)
  • Windows 10 x64 with Crimson 16.1
  • Sapphire Radeon HD 7750
  • Samsung UE55HU7505 55" UltraHD
  • Club3D 1.2 to HDMI 2.0 Adapter (CAC-1070)
  • Startech Pro Series Metal High Speed HDMI Cable 2M (HDPSMM2M)

Comments:

  • CAC-1070 REV A0-00 FW:7.0e 1552
  • Also tested with HD 7970 3GB Reference Model
  • UHD Colour Mode must be enabled on the HDMI Port (Samsung)
  • Renaming HDMI1 to PC might get you 4:4:4 (Samsung)
  • I need to test it on newer drivers on linux to see if its supported there
