OK so you probably can just about play 4K video under Haiku on an i7+

Netflix and other video streaming services operate at 24-30fps, not 60.
Also, the number of people using 4K displays is extremely small; and
the number of people with 4K displays who pay for Netflix's
still-experimental 4K streaming is even smaller. 1080p decodes just
fine in software at this point.
If Haiku wants to be a professional media consumption or production
