    Held them back until AMD released their Crimson drivers. :(

    Huh, I would have thought it would need to be amplified...

    No, converter you linked has as target HDMI 1.4. that can do 4k @30Hz.
    They use this as misleading marketing:
    Supports up to 4K Ultra HD and 2560x1600 @ 60Hz

    But right below you have:
    Up to a 300 MHz Clock Rate for Stereoscopic 3D Support
    300MHz is what you need for 1x 1080p@120Hz (a.k.a. their 3D) or 2x 1080p@60Hz or 4x 1080p@30Hz
    Bold text is apparently 4k@30Hz

    $35 is allot cheaper then I was expecting these to be once they hit the market. This should help to convince a decent amount of enthusiasts (like most of us) to try out 4K PC Gaming.

    Still need the GPU's to power a smooth 4K experience, glad the adapter is only $35 since you still have to spend most of your $$ on a GPU or two...oh yeah you need a 4K display as well :)

    This gaming enthusiast alreadys at 4k 60 fps, as he gave his r9 295x2 to his brother and bought 2 980 tis, that do hdmi 2.0 natively.

    This is good news though, just 2 years too late for me. Maybe now I can look at AMD for the next gen.
