The older Intel CPU's and Nvidia GPU's don't have h.265 built in. I have a workstation at work that has a Xeon e5-1620
v4, 16gb ram and a Quadro K1200. They didn't buy this for encoding, but for Creo 4. It handles h.265, but it very
slow/sliggish with high CPU usage. These specs are about a 1.5 years old, from when they launched. My System at home
is a Asus Rampage V 10 Edition, I7-6950x @4.0Ghz, 64 GB ram, 2 Nvidia 1080 Founders editions and it handles h.265
great even though the cpu doesn't have it built in either, so i attribute the performance to the GTX 1080. My point, is buying
a newer graphics card will probably help you, and be cheaper than replacing everything.
btw...Premiere Pro will only use one GPU when rendering per Nvidia's control panel setting.

HEVC is going to be the new standard going forward, and it's the chicken or the egg analogy. I guess I don't know if
they could use .264 in those modes, maybe they have internal bandwidth issues to deal with, I don't know. But they're
not trying to piss you off. I remember hearing all this stuff when .264 came out.

In addition, it's not about having a £2000 pc or not, it's about having the latest software to support it. My samung galaxy s8 happily plays back all the files from the Hero6 without issue.
