Here are some highlights that matter to us:
- H.264 encoding 4K at 60Hz and decoding 4K at 120 Hz and 8K at 30Hz
- HEVC encoding 4K at 60Hz and decoding 4K at 120 Hz and 8K at 30Hz
- 10-bit HEVC encode and decode and 12-bit HEVC decode
This means that the above specs will trickle down to more affordable cards to use in a home theatre PC system. 10-bit 4K at 60Hz is the minimum standard we like as a future-proof specs that should last a person until 8K era.
