Best performance Intel NUC6i5SYH (2016) with 4K screen

Dear Friends,

For a few weeks I own a 4K screen connected to this NUC.

It feels slow when performing simple Office tasks.

I realise 4K doubles use of resources.

Are tips and trics known to boost my video-performance?

My configuration:

  • NUC6i5SYH
  • bootdisk Samsung 850 EVO - M2 - 500GB
  • datadisk Seagate Spinpoint M9T, 2TB ST2000LM
  • memory HyperX Impact - DDR4 2133Mhz CL13 SO-DIMM Kit - 16GB HX421S13IBK2/16
  • Bios SYSKLi35.86A.0063
  • OS Windows 10 Pro 64bit
  • Screen Philips Brilliance 328P
  • screen connected with Display Port @60Hz (scaling 175%)

Hello RobL,

Thank you for joining the Intel® NUC Community.

Our recommendation in this case is to run the Intel® HD Graphics driver to the latest and to include a high quality cable. In case you are interested you can take a look a some here: http://compatibleproducts.intel.com/ProductDetails/ExportPeripheralInfo?moduleName=Intel%C2%AE%20NUC... http://compatibleproducts.intel.com/ProductDetails/ExportPeripheralInfo?moduleName=Intel%C2%AE%20NUC...

Thank you for answering my question.

I frequently update my drivers from the Intel downloadpage for this NUC.

My cable is 4K certified.

How can I check my cable works as promised?

Is there more i can do?

For visualising the slowness I can create a video (using my smartphone) to show how slow scolling in a 10MB (34 pages) PDF-files goes.

I can let you know that the cables link mentioned should work as promised. I would not be able to comment on your specific cable model.

Sure, you can do that!

To attach a file, you must click "Use Advanced Editor" in the top right corner of the response box, then the "attach" option will appear in the bottom right corner of the response box.

Regards,

Amy C.
