best HTPC platform for the future - PCSTATS.com best HTPC platform for the future
Fri, Oct 10 2014 | 12:01PM | Filed under: Home Theatre| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

“If you want to assemble a HTPC that is ready for the future you will have to conclude that the components needed for that are not available at this point in time. As long as HDMI 2.0 and H.265 hardware decoders are not added to (integrated) GPUs it will be a struggle to play content in Ultra HD. The only option would be to build a system with a very powerful CPU, like a Core i7, and connect it to a TV sporting a DisplayPort 1.2. A Core i7 system however is very difficult to build cheaply, as well as keeping it silent and low power. Those three things happen to be the most important criteria for a HTPC.”
