E585 Video output through HDMI only 4k 50Hz

2018-10-26, 6:48 AM


 

This is what I got when I am using the HDMI port as output to my 4K monitor.

 

There is no issue with the monitor I am using (LG 27UD68) and the cable I am using (High-Speed HDMI Amazon Basic).

 

The monitor works perfectly (4K@60Hz) on other HDMI devices, such as my PS4 PRO, NVIDIA SHIELD, XBOX ONE X.

 

And it also works perfectly (4K@60Hz), when I am using the USB-C port through a USB-C to DisplayPort cable to output video to this monitor.

 

I cannot find why 4K@60 is not an option on this device through HDMI,

If the port is HDMI 1.4 then it should possibly be limited at 4K@30.

 

This might be a driver issue with the Vega 8 graphics adapter, but I cannot tell.

And Lenovo technician should work on this issue.

UPDATE 2018/11/29

 

I got 4K60Hz working on my Sharp 4K Roku TV through HDMI,

I went to advanced display properties and changed the refresh rate to 60.

 

I also confirmed that the TV runs at 60Hz by checking status and 

testing it using the UFO test.

 

Why I can only get 4K@50Hz on that LG monitor still unknown and need further testing.

I don't have a solution either, but AMD's Ryzen APUs supports HDMI 2.0 spec. 

 

A quote from another forum that may be tangentially related?

 

"The fix is to go in the Monitor menu and make sure "Ratio" under "Quick Settings" is 1:1 or Original (NOT Wide). For me it was set to Wide when I got it, and when in "Wide" it limits to 30Hz."

This problem occurs on the E495 also. You can have 60Hz on Lenovo 4k monitors with HDMI (yes HDMI) but not on LG monitors, where you get 50Hz only.

Since I have posted that, I have found the HDMI output (on my E485) is limited to 1.4 specs. That means 4k60 is not possible.
