Well as far as I know it won't have HDMI 2 so no 4k 60fps unless it has a display port 1.2

It does, but Broadwell only supports "hybrid" HEVC decoding under Windows, so it's ability to play back 4K HEVC content (esp 10-bit) is highly questionable. From a Kodi performance standpoint, it's no better than a Haswell Celeron really.

Thanks alot for good replies. Wont buy it then
So Haswell is the prefered windows plattform for htpc ?
