Intel Haswell CPUs May Feature 4K Video acceleration

Display 99 Published by

Well, we need to see Ivy bridge first, but with the introduction of Haswell in 2013, Intel reportedly wants to take the video decoding capabilities of its integrated GPUs one step further by adding hardware decoding support for 4K content, as well as a series of new post-processing features.

As VR-Zone reports, the integrated graphics core found inside Haswell is expected to include full MVC and SVC hardware encode and decode, as well as much faster AVC processing.

Both of these features are required for accelerating 4K video playback, which should become a major selling point for Intel
