    Intel CPUs have had hardware video acceleration since at least Skylake. A dual-core Gemini Lake NUC can even transcode Blu-ray MKV files as a light-duty Plex server. So you're completely wrong.

    Actually, I'm completely right.
    Check what available outputs that laptop has.
    Now which one supports 4k 60 hz ?
