As the titel says, im a MacOS User and use a Mac Mini with the Apple M1 Chip from 2020. I am a bit curious because I was told that the Mac itself is Bad to Decoder 4:4:4? When Gaming at 4K Witz 4:4:4 Even when gering 60FPS in Shadow the picture/stream isbt smooth - but when turning ist down to WQHD Or FullHD it works fine (beside looking bad ob a 4K Display) ..


So, is the mac itself the issue or shadow?🤔

I have 1GB Download/50MBS up and use the normal Shadow fie 29€

AFAIK the macOS Shadow app is Apple Silicon native, so the question becomes whether the app supports hardware-accelerated 4:4:4 (uncompressed) decoding. I don’t might want to ask them through their official support channel.
