There is no powerful laptop yet STILL, which will handle 4K@60 (2160p60) without dGPU?

    I actually cannot force my cpu's integrated gpu. Im literally firmware locked out and believe it or not, there isnt even enough capacitors soldered on for full cpu and igpu power, just for cpu. I can "kick" it on by convincing the thing that the main gpu doesnt exist, but wow its literally slow as hell. Warframe couldnt even load, thats how slow.

    Maybe your iGPU is not working at all..
    Because Warframe runs on Intel iGPUs:

    I dont know then because I see absolutely no usage of the igpu with chrome being active, either in 3d graphics or video. I dont have optimus or a mux switch btw.

    It has nothing to do with the compute units in the GPU, but the fixed function media decode units in the GPU.

    The reason your 5th and 6th Gen core doesn't work is because it doesn't have VP9 support. Starting in 7th Gen(Kaby Lake) is when it has VP9 decode.

    Tigerlake will have support for 8K60 decode in VP9 and HEVC.

    No it works but stuttering.. So I switch to 2k instead on 5th and it is fine..
    On 6th it was so so there was intel hd 530.. It was struggling but as soon as I set Nvidia gtx 970m run chrome all perfect and smooth

    So not playing smooth 4k@60 streaming is because lack of features support u mentioned or cpu and gpu is weak so slow?

    Yeah only when cpu struggling THEN it triggers gpu to help cpu.. If u have strong cpu for 4k@60 then there is no need gpu to engage..

    It's stuttering because the CPU has to handle the decode. In Kabylake the GPU has a fixed function unit that's much faster.

    The GPU and the CPU is the same in Kabylake. It just has a dedicated unit just for VP9 decode. Get it?

    Or just use an extension on your browser so youtube sends you mp4 video that your CPU can do hardware decoding and there is no need to use the dGPU to decode the VP9 codec that youtube defaults to.
