    G4600 performance of HD 630 w/o AVX/AVX2


      I need a kaby lake processor for decoding 4k video in Netflix and YouTube. While both the Pentium G4600 and the i3 have the HD 630, the Pentium lacks AVX/AVX2. I've been reading that both codecs rely heavily on AVX2. I'd like to know if the Pentium is significantly crippled by the lack of AVX2 when it comes to decoding 4k video, when compared to the i3. Will Netflix 4k streaming be supported  no the Pentium? What other performance implications come from a lack of AVX2 support (as it pertains to an HTPC running Windows 10).
