WTP -- Kaby Lake currently comes with HDCP 1.4 ?

Good thing I didn't pull the trigger on ebay:

The manufacturer still promises noticeably more performance as a result of higher clocks or better Turbo Boost utilization at the same consumption, respectively. Only the video unit was redesigned, and it now supports the codecs VP9 as well as HEVC-Main10 with a 10-bit color depth and it is also supposed to be even more efficient. We also get HDMI 2.0 with HDCP 2.2 support for the first time, but these features will be reserved for the new chip revision we will see at the end of the year. The first batches are still limited to HDCP 1.4 and can therefore not output Netflix in 4K, for example.
