    Will they include a similar DRM handshake to SGX so we can finally watch 4k blu ray discs on PC without having to use a shitty Intel iGPU?

    It's my understanding that this is currently not possible due to a limitation associated with the PCI-Express graphics Bus and the security design required for the handshake.

    But... the CPU uses the PCI-E bus anyway. Or are the lanes allocated to the slots in some way different than the ones reserved for the CPU?
