Holy hell anyone see whats needed just to watch 4K UHD movies on your PC? I know it's a bit late on the subject. Since I switched to 4K monitor, I was seeing if it was possible. This is why piracy exist, it punishes legit users with dozen hoops to jump through just to watch there own movies. HDCP 2.2(PC Side), Karby Lake CPU, AACS 2.0 support, Intel's SGX and finally UHD Software. Plus a 4K Monitor with HDPC 2.2 Support and HDMI 2.0a+. Allot of monitors still only use HDMI 1.4. I
No E Class Processors(6950X,7900X, etc...) will be support what's needed to Play 4K movies. Then add on top of that barely any Motherboards actually support everything that's needed. I don't even think SGX can be done in UEFI.
It's another reason why Blu-Ray on the PC never really took off.
Intel Optane SSD 900P - has a nice performance but not worth the money when you only get 480 gigs and is only slightly faster then 960Pro. You can get a Samsung SSD with 2TB for the same price. With some of the field tests Intel drive was only 0.5 seconds faster then Samsung 950 during bootup. The 960 was not used not sure what the advantage will be on that drive.
I ran into a small issue, The Hardrive cages can't be installed with my cables & Spliity9/Hubby7 installed on the back. I'm going have to figure something else out. Going try to do tiny sleeving on fan cables and see if that will work. I might need a new plate for the back.
