4K Netflix required Windows 10 PC processor specification concern

We already knew that you were able to watch Netflix 4K content on the PS4 Pro, and now if you have a Windows 10 PC, then you also have the option to watch in this much better image quality.

However, there is one big issue, and that is the fact that not many Windows 10 PCs will be able to support Netflix 4K. This is because of the processor specification is a bit of a strange one, and so a cause for concern.

Required Windows 10 PC processor specification for Netflix 4K – In order to view in 4K on your Windows 10 computer you will need one with a 7th-gen Intel Kaby Lake processor, and we know that not many devices have them. We know the Lenovo Yoga 910 has it and the HP Spectre, but your options are limited.

There are some concerns here though, and so causing some confusion because many systems are able to handle 4K content just fine, such as a core i3-4170 and a Radeon RX 460. However, it does not have anything to do with power, but rather the fact Kaby Lake supports HDCP 2.2 DRM, which is needed to play 4K protected content on a PC – which is something to do with Hollywood bosses.
