Is there a low Powered cpu that can natively decode HEVC

I have a HTPC that I want to upgrade so that it can decode HEVC (H.265) 4K videos.

As it's a low powered machine that currently runs 24/7 and has a cpu with a tdp of 35 i'd like the replacement to having similar power usage.

I have noticed the A12-9800E uses very little power but can it decode HEVC and if not which processors can and is there one that has a lower power usage ?

I need an embedded GPU as I have no spare PCi-e slots and do not need any gaming performance.  PC is for watching media only.

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, this CPU can only play 4k video under the old h.264 standard.  Using HEVC (H.265) it claims to only be able to decode resolutions up to 1080p.
