Just to clarify, you misread the wiki, it's referring to GM206 which is limited to HEVC Main10/VP9 4K decoding, GT 1030(GP108 GPU) as you can see has full fixed function 8K hardware decoding for both HEVC Main10 and VP9 10bit Profile2.

You should only buy the MSI card with DP1.4 output which supports 4K and 5K resolution monitors because DVI-D on GT 1030 is limited to 1080P only due to single-link DVI.

Also on Linux, Nvidia Pascal cards can decode HEVC Main10 just fine with NVDEC using Nvidia Video Codec SDK 8.

Quote:10/12-bit decoding support with HEVC/VP9

GT 1030 might not have enough VRAM for Netflix 4K.
