Youtube Videos @ 2160p6o 4k resolution.

  [DELETED] 18:45 26 Dec 2018

It's been around for a while but finding more videos available at this resolution today. Just for some interest can any of you play such videos at that resolution? I've a modest 6th gen i5, 4 core and goes up to 3 GHz and it struggles to run them, all cores running at 100%. 8 Gig ram and running a 500GB SSD? It's the CPU that's the bottleneck.

A link to a video that has been uploaded with this option if you wish to try it out. Would be very interesting to me if your CPU can handle it - thanks.

No replies yet. Hmm if you run the YT vid remember to upgrade the resolution via settings within the video to 2160p60 4k . I was hoping john bunian would try it out on his new Dell. If you're looking JB please have a go.

But my specs can't handle it... that's why I'm asking. Some people have much higher specs and was just wondering.. not a crime is it?

rdave13, no it is not a crime but why can't you be happy with what you've got. Why push the boudaries?

Aitchbee your question baffles me and I mean no disrespect whatsoever. Windows, Youtube, Hardware,Software and OSs including Linux is my passion and hobby and always has been. Talk to me about software and a search engine will suffice. Otherwise it's changing as much as I can do with hardware in laptops at the moment. Unfortunately that hobby is getting harder by my age. Sight, hands feelings etc.

Once I stop 'pushing the boundaries' with Tech then I may as well curl up and die.

Aitchbee thanks for the question anyway. It's certainly 'bucked' me up a bit. Thanks friend.

I will have a look when I have time, but I only have the “normal” 13” screen, not the touch one. I thought that at up to about 42” , it is difficult to see the improvement in this resolution. I will check tomorrow if I can

My screen is 13.3” at 1920 x 1080 so not much use.

PPS On an iPhone at the mo so will see if I have time on laptop tomorrow. Desktop is good but monitor is not 4K
