Why does my A10 7890k with 16Gb Ram run 4k Video so badly?

It seems to work on some but not others obviously there are differences in the bit rate etc., but where are the enhancements for the onboard GPU's when you use a program. VLC is terrible with large files in 4k, Media player classic works well but not for the ones listed below, so my question is should this APU be able to play these? And if it should then why doesn't  AMD release installable codecs or enhancements or a player to play these instead of worrying about rubbish like advertising games while we are installing their drivers. Can someone either point me to a fix to play these or point out whether or not the 7890 is in fact NOT capable of playing these videos, so I don't waste anymore time looking for a solution. OR is someone with a similar system able to play these?

AMD A10-7890K APU
