Motherboard and Intel processor for 4K UHD BD

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)

HDR10

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?

 

thank you

Probably Tiger Canyon NUC equipped with Integrated Intel Iris Xe Graphics will meet your 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!
