fmpeg2 has had a bunch of optimisations for HEVC decoding packaged into it lately and you can now Software decode low/medium bitrate 8-bit 1080p HEVC on non Hardware decode HEVC capable hardware like the Chromebox and RPi3.

As I mentioned in the Hi-10p thread, my Celeron Chromebox had no issues with a sample of a certain recent release in 10-bit HEVC 1080p - - zero drops, zero skips, and CPU usage hovered around 50%. I'd be curious to know if the Braswell/Cherry Trail SoC's handle 10-bit HEVC as well.
