Phase 0 driver support allows for fixed function VP9 4K30 & 2K60 and just those two. The actual fixed function device supports 12-bit @ 4K60 for VP9. VP9 uses a slightly modified HEVC part of UVD 6.x (Bristol Ridge/Stoney Ridge/Polaris 10/11). [http://www.webmproject.org/hardware/vp9/ , clean room design of G2v2 via existing HEVC][[This also means it can encode it.]][[[http://wiki.webmproject.org/ffmpeg/vp9-encoding-guide VP9 is the reason HEVC supports 2-pass as well]]]No AMD product currently has the hardware for VP9 decoding, but a hybrid solution should be enabled in the driver for Bristol Ridge and Polaris dGPUs.
