Planning to build a new Windows 10 / 11, Intel based Home Theater PC that will play 4K UHD BD and to stream 4K UHD HDR from YouTube and stream premium HDR from Netflix. I believe that requires:
7th to 10th generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5 processor for Desktop PC (Kaby Lake to Comet Lake) with Intel® HD Graphics 630, Intel Iris™ Graphics 640 (or higher) GPU.
HDCP 2.2 or 2.3
HDMI 2.0a or 2.0b
Display Port 1.4
Intel SGX (includes BIOS for SGX)
4K display (3840 x 2160 minimum) 10-bit color depth
6GB RAM minimum -- Most likely 16 GB
Are there other features to be aware of in an effort to find a motherboard and processor to meet present and foreseeable requirements?
Haven't messed with a NUC before. Looks like a nice efficient compact device.
My current HTPC uses a Silverstone case with Gigabyte ATX board. Has DVD and bluRay drives. And several HDD's and an SSD. It seems due to all of those ancillary devices, I should stick with an ATX style board.
Thank you Leon!
