Intel VAAPI howto with Leia v18 nightly based on Ubuntu 18.04 server
The Hybrid approach, that is used under windows also works on linux, it is the same blob shipped with the media-sdk. So 10 bit hybrid decoding is already there. Release is not done, cause of political reasons.

We (kodi) try to contact intel management to ask for release of this wrapper (hybrid wrapper is in place already as you know). Furthermore the intel driver already has some "decoding + transform" in place, so that we could use the same arch for now, but add the 10 to 8 transformation in a pipeline.

Let's see what will happen.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.
