Is this drive a NATIVE 4K playback unit or is it upscaled? i.e will it playback UHD 4K Disks? I'm currently getting a FORMAT error on using 4K Disks Asking for a mate in Ojai California

Asked by: BiggyRat
It's native. You have to have every single thing listed under the specs, there very few motherboards that support everything needed to playback 4K movies(Specially the Intel SGX). There are allot of hoops you need to jump through just to play a 4K movie. There is a typo, Only Monitors with HDCP 2.2 and HDMI 2.0a are supported, Monitors with HDMI 2.0 and below are not supported. Of course Displayport is not support in any way for some reason.
