We've heard your feedback, so we gathered information regarding the encoding and decoding capabilities for 7th generation Intel® Core™ processors and newer. Continue reading for more information.

 

Video content is typically compressed and encoded into a specific format when it is stored on hard drives, DVDs, Blu-ray* products, tablets, mobile devices, or broadcast media. When the content is played, uploaded on the internet, or copied, it must first be decoded and then re-encoded in the relevant format. This is due to the variety of web browsers, video players, and devices that support or play video at different formats.

 

The video encoding and decoding process uses video coding formats such as MPEG-4 Advanced Video Coding (MPEG-4 AVC or H.264), High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC or H.265), VP8, and many more that adhere to standard specifications. The dedicated media processing capabilities of Intel® Graphics Technology decode and encode quickly, allowing the processor to complete other tasks and improve system responsiveness.

 

This Intel® Developer Zone document lists the media encode and decode capabilities for 7th generation Intel® Core™ processors and newer.
