Alright, so I have a request for someone with a laptop that has either a 3317u, a 3337u, or a 4200u, and a resolution of 1366x768.

I am soon going to be buying a laptop, as my current one is dead. I have a question about the capabilities of this processor and it's integrated graphics.

I know that it can easily play back 1080p content, however I was wondering if it was capable of doing things like watching 4k video, or HEVC or hi10p at a 1080p resolution with pretty high bitrates without dropping frames or slowing down? You may ask why I would require things like this, and that is because I am mainly going to be using this laptop for media consumption, and I don't want to have to buy a new laptop in a couple of years just because I buy one that can't do those things.

While 4k videos shouldn't be hard to find, as they are on Youtube, I'm not sure about HEVC, or even if you can test that yet.

Hi10p is the oddest one here, however it is the most important to me. This can be hard to find, but I can supply a couple of videos in this format, and as for watching it, the software that I need to know if it works well is LAV Filters, MadVR, and MPC-HC, I can show you where to go or personally help you to get them configured properly to work together.

If someone can do this for me it would be a great help, as I don't want to have to spend vast amounts of money just to be able to watch this kind of stuff on a laptop. Please reply if you are willing to help a guy out! Thanks!

I would be really appreciative if I could get some help! I'm really stumped about this as no one has ever really put any information like this online.

The Intel HD graphics core in current generation Haswell CPUs should be able to playback 4k video. I believe there was an issue with the older Ivy Bridge generation Intel HD 4000 where the 4k video decoder struggled from time to time. Intel has said they updated the 4k video decoder for the HD 4400 / HD 4600 graphic cores.

It's probably a bit too premature for HEVC video which is supposed to replace H.264 used for Blu-Rays.

Hi10p Video is merely a 10-bit version of H.264 so I can't see it being an issue for the intel HD 4400 / HD 4600 graphic cores.

I am currently in the possession of a Dell laptop (uncle's) with a Core i5-4200U + Intel HD 4400 graphics core. If you can provide a few links to 4k videos I can check out the playback performance.

That's seems to be a good one. In fact, I'm pretty sure most of the videos on the Unbox Therapy channel are 4k now. Youtube will say 2160p, but that's just the other name for 4k. I'll se if I can find some more though, but I really need to lay down and try to get some rest for tomorrow. (Man I need to stop staying up until 4 AM)

Also, for Hi10p, the reason I'm asking about how well it works, is that you actually can't hardware decode Hi10p, so it all has to be done in software decoding, which takes quite a bit more power. So would you be at all willing to get some software and try a couple of videos?
