H.265/HEVC Hardware Encoding and Decoding Support

Environment

All

Intel® Core™ processors Intel® HD Graphics 530 or higher

BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
Summary

Article to find out Intel support for H.265/HEVC hardware encoding and decoding

Description

Intel® Quick Sync Video uses the dedicated media processing capabilities of Intel® Graphics Technology to decode and encode fast. This enables the processor to complete other tasks at the same time and improves system responsiveness.

The High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), also known as H.265 and MPEG-H Part 2, is a video compression standard designed as part of the MPEG-H project as a successor to the widely used Advanced Video Coding (AVC, H.264, or MPEG-4 Part 10).

Resolution

Hardware accelerated support for the H.265/HEVC codec starts with 6th generation Intel® Core™ processors.

This site contains some more detailed information about the encoding/decoding capabilities of 7th generation and newer Intel® Core™ processors.

Additional information

To confirm if a specific processor supports it, check the datasheet and look for the HEVC related information. The datasheet can be found in the Intel® Product Specifications page.
