So I read that Netflix on Microsoft Edge will do 4K streaming under these conditions and these conditions only

 

- Windows 10 - Tick

 

- 4K screen - Tick (umm why would you miss streaming on 4K if the screen is not 4K)

 

- Intel Kaby Lake

 

Ok so I need to upgrade my CPU (Skylake) just to check this out ... 





Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

I read that there was a HDCP requirement too for the screen to video card, which means that getting it on a 1440p screen so you're looking at better than 1080 content is probably not possible :(

I'm hoping that it comes to my GTX 1070.... It is playready 3.0 compatible but we will see...

I'm guessing you don't have Kaby Lake ...

kaby lake is if you are decoding in the onboard video. Dont see why they shouldnt support graphics card decoding eventually but intel probably had a say in getting first dibs to make a deal for their new chips.

joker97: I'm guessing you don't have Kaby Lake ...


Kaby lake supports 4K UHD graphics in the HD Graphics 615 and I am not sure, it looks like the HD Graphics 620 supports DCI 4k.

I understand that netflix requires hdmi 2.0 and hdcp 2.2 to display 4k. I am not sure what processor SKU supports that yet.
