PixelFX Set To Release 4K Upscaler

Home » Video Games » Retro Games » PixelFX Set To Release 4K Upscaler

The other day I covered the RetroTINK 4K and I thought it was way overpriced. Today, I see that PixelFX is set to release two iterations of their own 4K upscaler, called the “MORPH 4K.” There will be two options; analog and HDMI-only, and will be $500 and $400 respectively.

According to PixelFX:

Morph 4k + Analog – This is the Morph 4K equipped with an internal “Analog Bridge”. The analog bridge is a hardware module containing a pair of high performance analog to digital video converter chips with a swappable input video connector sub-board. This lets you pair the Analog Bridge with almost any video connector arrangement that you want whether it’s dual VGA, SCART and component, or a professional 5-BNC input setup. You’re set for anything from composite all the way to crisp RGB. The Analog Bridge video connectors support multiple video formats per input, making it easy to route all your consoles through a single video switch. Perfect for retro gamers looking to play their classic consoles in full 4K glory. Some might even call the Morph 4K + Analog the “BVM of scalers”.   Price ($500) Early Bird Pricing ($475)


Morph 4k – This is the HDMI only version which is perfect for users who want top-notch 4K upscaling for their HDMI devices – be it the Retro G.E.M., Switch, MiSTer,  Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Analogue Super NT, and more. It also works great as a re-scaler for your current scaler hardware, like the OSSC or Framemeister. Supporting 240p to 1080p HDMI input, the Morph 4K gives you a visual boost while keeping things all digital. The Morph 4K contains an internal expansion port which can accept powerful hardware modules to help tailor the Morph 4K to different roles in your setup. For example, those who need on-board analog input support can power-up the Morph 4K with our “Analog Bridge” module.   Price ($400) Early Bird Pricing ($375)



  • Up to 4K60 resolution polyphase upscaling
  • 4:4:4 end to end color support
  • HDR, Variable Refresh Rate, Black Frame Insertion
  • Ultra low lag
  • Motion adaptive deinterlacing
  • Scanlines
  • WiFi updates and WebUI system control
  • MicroSD card slot for updates and user files
  • Expansion card support

Like I said for the RetroTINK, I really do not have a need for something like this and justify that price. For me, there is a certain point of diminishing returns. That point is when the games look as I remember them, and they are more than “good enough.”
