judging by the WWDC , hw only on A9+ SoC’s, atv4 is an A8
we will need to setup separate dev rigs for tvOS 11 as thats heavy beta, but its something we will definitely look into.
Just got a new 10.5" iPad. I wonder if it can play 1080p or even 4K HEVC in software. The A10X is a beast in terms of CPU power (and GPU as well).
Apple hinted towards "more news on the ATV" later this year. Could indeed be a new model supporting 4K, HDR, HDMI 2.0 and a revised iTunes store bringing 4K content.
Wouldn't be surprised either if the ATV5 gets a stripped down A10 SoC (two high power cores, dropping the lower power ones), supporting HEVC main profile incl. 10 & 12-bpp.
BTW... is it possible to output HDR10 via HDMI 1.4 on the ATV4 ? PS4 and XB1 are doing it... or is there some kind of hardware restriction (or API limit) ?
