Can any Intel graphics support YUV422 format rather t? Thinking UHD 630 or similar latest generation


Would like to be able to use a YUV color space on an HDMI output, so as to make a more graceful hardware conversion to HD-SDI (1080p using a Semtech GS12170 device, which requires YUV rather than RGB).

Are there any integrated graphics (Thinking UHD 630 with Tiger Lake H) that will offer this color space capability directly on their HDMI outputs? 

There doesn't seem to be a documented method to add a YUV color space (via a pre-existing ICC) under Windows 10 at least, or any other driver/graphics settings that would allow this graphics color space.

Any advice on how to get there?

Last one works at least for my requirements:

  • 4K 60 Hz YCbCr 4:2:0 BT.2020 12 bpc HDR 445MHz
  • 4K 30 Hz (or less) YCbCr 4:4:4 BT.2020 12 bpc HDR 445MHz

System tested: ASRock Z490 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3, Core i5-10400, UHD Graphics 630 (Comet Lake-S GT2) with LSPCON MCDP2800 soldered on board

  • Advanced options "Color Depth" and "Color Format" shown in Graphics Command Center and Resync successful after switching between formats and color depths as long as it fits within the HDMI 2.0a link rate (4K 60 Hz YCbCr 4:4:4 BT.2020 12 bpc HDR not possible, YCbCr 4:2:2 not supported on Intel Integrated Graphics).
