HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Desktop - 550-186na

I have a HP Pavilion Desktop - 550-186na  and am thinking about upgrading the monitor.

How can I find out whether the graphics card will support HD or 4K ?

Hey there! @JBUC,


I have checked the specifications of the graphics card and it supports a maximum resolution of 3840 × 2160 (4K UHD). So the graphics card does support 4K resolutions.


However, The monitor you connecting to the PC to should support 4K, only then you can watch 4K videos on the monitor.


HDMI High Speed was introduced with 4k in mind. All HDMI cables that carry the HDMI High-Speed Logo do support the HDMI 2.0 Standard and can transmit ultra high resolutions with 2160p @ 24 Hz (=4k).


Full 4K support was introduced with HDMI version 1.4. However, you can only be sure with cables certified as "High Speed" to support the high bandwidth requirements of HDMI 2.0. Cables classified Version 1.3 mostly don't work for HDMI 4K functionality. The following list will give you a rough orientation.

  • HDMI cable 1.0 – 1.2 – no 4K Ultra HD support
  • HDMI cable 1.3: Probably no 4K support depending on the cable
  • HDMI cable 1.4: 4K support very likely, but not guaranteed
  • HDMI High Speed Cable: 4K Ultra HD support guaranteed

Refer the graphics card specifications page for more information. Click Here


Hope this answers your query!

Have a great day! 🙂
