If I have GT 1030 with less than Kaby Lake CPU, I can
t play 4K / 4k HDR files with Kodi? 

Thanks.

Within Kodi that shouldn't be a problem. The only CPU-specific stuff that I'm aware of is to do with DRM for Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc playback and Netflix etc.   
Ok. So 4k HEVC material should not be a problem with GT1030 + Haswell CPU, but HDR won
t work because Kodi simply wont support it yet. 
My experience is that it's ok on 4k30, but not 4k50/4k60.
For HDR I used MPC-BE with madVR. 4k24 and 4k30 HDR were ok, but nothing beyond that.

The GT 1030 is supposed to handle DRM, but it won't do Netflix as they've put the bar at 4GB (don't know why).
With the stupid prices on basic cards like the GTX 1050 TI 4GB due to bloody miners, I've gone for an Xbox S for now. The Radeon RX 550 has a 4GB option (Netflix support is supposedly due in Q2), but it's still in the $130-150 range.
