Playing games through tv


Active Member
In the absence if a PS 5 at the moment, I want to play F1 and other games through my Samsung TV instead of my laptop screen without any lag, would a simple HDMI 4k lead connection be the best option ? I purchase my games through Steam usually..

Yes should have no issue

I've used a 4k tv for pc on occasion with no issues. The only thing is the connection used. If its hdmi there might be limitation on fps based on resolution

Just remember to set the TV to game mode and/or optionally rename the HDMI input to PC, this will activate the RGB chroma 444 mode which is what PC's desktop output uses but its not as necessary for games.
