    Could you, dear experts, please give your feedback on how well the HDR10 / Dolby Vision content is displayed using the above setup (with or without eGPU)? ;)

    I just got my mac mini setup - it has 16gb RAM and the i7 CPU. I have an LG 34" Curved Wide screen 3340 and a 4k 60" Vizio both hooked up to the MM - and the internal GPU has handled both with no issues so far. I don't do any gaming however, just music and video editing for drone footage. I may pick up a eGPU next year sometime if I start doing 4k editing, I am strictly 1080 right now.

    I can't say specifically about the HDR10, but i was watching PSVUE through the TV and it was crisp.

    I am currently writing this and streaming 4k streaming on Netflix on my 4k Vizio - don't think it has Dolby vision or HDR10, but it is handling this with no issue, connected via BT to a Harmon Kardon Speaker - no skipping or stuttering.
    RAM is at 8GB, CPU is 95% idle, again barely above Idle. But I can't confirm the HDR10 question.
    GPU monitor showing maybe 20% usage.

    Hello there

    Is your TV compatible with HDR?
    If yes, could you try some of these files: https://4kmedia.org/

    On your Tv it should show somewhere it is HDR.
