Capable of playing multiple 4K videos too

We already wrote that Intel's Ivy Bridge will have a decent GPU that should end up about 60 percent faster than the one used in Sandy Bridge processors, but now VR-Zone came up with yet another new detail that will make this GPU even more interesting, support for 4K resolution.

As you already know, the maximum supported resolution for the Sandy Bridge topped out at WQXGA, or 2560x1600, but the upcoming Ivy Bridge GPU will have, what Intel calls, Multi Format Codec or MFX engine. According to Intel, thanks to MFX, Ivy Bridge GPU won't only be able to support the 4Kx4K resolution but will also be capable of playing multiple 4K videos at the same time. It has the capability to handle video processing for 4K QuadHD video.
