Is UHD (4K) Blu-Ray Supported on Intel® 11th Generation or Newer Processors?

Environment

Windows® 10*, Windows 11*

BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
Summary

11th gen processors and newer don't support UHD (4K) Blu-Rays.

Description

Would UHD (4K) Blu-Ray be supported on Intel 11th generation or newer processors?

Resolution

Due to Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX) not being present on these processors UHD (4K) Blu-Ray is not supported on these platforms. UHD Blu-ray disks require Digital Rights Management (DRM), which needs the presence of SGX to work.

Blu-ray content (1080p) is still supported.
