What graphics card do I need for the Huion Kamvas Pro 16 (4K)/Kamvas Pro 16 Plus (4K)?

The Kamvas Pro 16(4K) and Kamvas Pro 16 Plus(4K) are the first 4K pen displays released by Huion. Both of them boast a 4K display resolution of 3840×2160 (16: 9), which is 4 times higher than 1080P. That means you can enjoy stunning picture quality and more detail with this 15.6-inch screen.

However, due to how taxing running and rendering things at 4K is on computers, you should make sure your graphic card is powerful enough to run 4K.

Industry Support for 4K

There are 2 ways of delivering 4K content, HDMI and DisplayPort.


The HDMI 1.4 standard only has bandwidth for 4K @ 30hz. HDMI 2.0 supports 4K @ 60Hz.

B) DisplayPort 1.2

DisplayPort can support 4K @ 60Hz using Multi-Stream Transport(MST). The graphics card provides signals for multiple displays but these are multiplexed on a single cable.

According to the industry standard, if there is an HDMI 1.4 port on your graphics card, your computer can run the Kamvas Pro 16 (4K) @ 30HZ. But the display may be freezing when you draw, watch videos or browse webpages on Huion Kamvas Pro 16 (4K). So we recommend you use a graphics card that has either an HDMI 2.0 port or DisplayPort 1.2 or later connector to support 4K @ 60HZ.
