4k video playback is actually not that big of a deal compared to 4k gaming. Although i have no experience with 4k uhd blu ray playback on pc but i'm pretty sure even the integrated graphics on a kaby lake processor should handle 4k video playback. No discrete gpu required. I would try that first, and if for some reason it doesn't work, a 1050 will definitely do 4k video playback.
I'm pretty sure the phillips 4k uhd bluray drive requiring kaby lake to work, also has it in mind that it will be using the integrated graphics for video playback as well. I should just work like that.
The next question would be do kaby lake motherboards have hdmi 2.0/display port?
found this thread with some info on hdmi 2.0 motherboards: https://forums.evga.com/Motherboard-with-integrated-HDMI-20a-or-DP-14-out-m2626204.aspx
it seems like you HAVE to use the integrated graphics due to DRM. A discrete gpu will not work. Which means you need to find a motherboard with the proper DRM over hdmi 2.0a.
LOL this is why there's only one of these drives in existence. the DRM on 4k blu rays is just insane
At this point, you're better off just buying an xbox one s.Edited by IMI4tth3w - 8/24/17 at 5:22pm
