Thank you for contacting us.
I was reading your thread and I noticed that you want to inquire on the features of our upcoming NUC7PJYH.
It will be more than a pleasure to assist you with your inquiry.
I am forwarding your case to the right team of support so they can discuss the information.
As soon as I have an answer I will get in touch with you in order to help you with the requested features.
Hope to hear from you soon,
No HDR support in Gemini Lake (NUC7PJYH) and please allow me a couple of days to check about HD Audio pass-through support, I still need confirmation on this topic.
THX for fast information :-)! But it is really a mess, that Intel has no HDR support on lower end SOC NUCs, but also didn‘t have native HDMI on i7/i5/i3 NUCs (only with DP bridge chips, which make many problems, for example with 3D MVC). So there is not a really HTPC as a media player alternative from Intel in the year 2018. Sorry, this is unbelievable folks! You know, that you can roll over the market of media players, when you have a NUC with 3D MVC AND 4K HDR support?
So ill have to buy a lower picture quality equipped media player, like Zidoo, etc.., instead of an Intel NUC, that normally should have this features and from quality standpoints blow out these other boxes out of the market.... It is really sad.....
But nevertheless, THX for the superfast information :-)!
Thanks for your feedback, I will bring it up to the team working on the NUC product family for future consideration. We do have some products being released this year that may fulfill your needs, I would recommend that you keep an eye on the Intel Newsrooms, for instance: https://newsroom.intel.com/news/intel-launches-powerful-intel-nuc-smallest-vr-capable-system-ever/ and also on https://ark.intel.com/
Why, then, this document refers to support for HDR - https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/product-briefs/nuc7cjyh-nuc7pjyh-nuc7cjys-brief.pdf
"Two HDMI* 2.0a ports with 4K at 60 Hz, HDR"
Hi. Can you confirm if the hardware is capable of HDR and if not detail explanation of why the hardware isnt capable.
It maybe a case that its just the software at this point in time doesnt support the hardware for HDR.
See proof of concept on linux for HDR
HDR support on Gemini Lake is not POR (Plan Of Record), thus hardware validation results aren't available.
I know this isn't the level of detail you are looking for, but at least the confirmation I can provide is that HDR support won't be coming to this platform.
What about POCR. Plan of customer requirements.
It seems like the hardware according to conversations with asrock is capable, but intel once again is sitting on the fence post just so they can sell more expensive i3 cpus which are capable of HDR.
This reminds me of driver issues passing HD sound via hdmi. Same old chestnut.
Proved through linux it was/is possible.
You advertised this product originally with HDR.
