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.
