It took quite some time for 4K Netflix streaming to arrive on PC, in large part due to piracy protection and DRM concerns. However, we have now reached a point where most modern GPUs, Ultra HD monitors and Windows 10 all have the required tools in place to allow for UHD streaming. Now, thanks to a new driver update, AMD’s latest RX 5700 series of graphics cards have also joined the club.
The new Radeon Software Adrenaline Edition version 19.8.1 update introduces PlayReady 3.0 support for the RX 5700 series. For those who don’t know, PlayReady is Microsoft’s own form of DRM on Windows, which is backed by streaming services like Netflix and is required for Ultra HD viewing on Windows 10. Of course, either a Microsoft browser, or the Windows 10 Netflix app is also required.
So there is some positive news in this aspect for RX 5700 owners. 

Specs: AMD Ryzen 9 3950X,  Corsair MP600 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero,  Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2070 FTW 3
