FUD Zilla learned some new details about the integrated graphics solution that ships with Intel's upcoming Kaby Lake-S processors. Among other things, Kaby Lake will get High Dynamic Range (HDR) support and a hardware encoder and decoder for video codec formats like VP9 and HEVC 10b.
The new tricks that Intel managed to squeeze in to Kaby Lake are High Dynamic Range (HDR), Wide Color Gamut (Rec.2020) and HDCP 2.2 support. Kaby Lake can now use hardware encode and decode for VP8, HEVC 8b, VP9 and HEVC 10b. Skylake used software encoding and decoding to cope with VP9 and HEVC 10b.

Kaby Lake GPU added support for HEVC10-bit decode and VP9 10-bit decode and just like Skylake, it can also support HEVC 8-bit encode/decode and VP8 8-bit encode/decode.

These new codecs should make Netflix UHD playback possible on Intel's platform. It should also enable 4K@60Hz YouTube content as well as Google Hangout videos. The Chrome browser can also benefit from VP9 hardware acceleration support.
Furthermore, the site writes Kaby Lake will support up to three 4K displays at 60Hz, or a single 5K display at 30Hz.
