The German website reports that it’s possible to stream Netflix content in Ultra HD, on Windows 10, with cheaper ‘Apollo Lake’ CPUs. Previously the more expensive 7th ‘Kaby Lake’ CPUs were the only option to stream Ultra HD Netflix content on Windows 10 PCs.

According to the website it’s possible with the Celeron N3450 and J3455 CPUs which both have hardware decoding for HEVC / H.265 onboard.

These CPUs power two mini barebones, the Intel NUC6CAYH and the Zotac ZBox CI327 which both contain HDMI 2.0 with HDCP 2.2. conversion chips.

When the barebones are fitted with RAM, SSD and Windows 10 it’s possible to view Netflix in Ultra HD in either Microsoft’s Edge browser or the Netflix app from the Windows Store. settings
