Current shield already does 10 bit 4k via direct stream, and all the uncompressed audio formats (including Atmos uncompressed). I use a 680 with my 4690k and on 10 bit 4k HEVC 265 videos with Atmos I barely hit 40% utilization during direct stream to the shield.
However if I have to transcode that file, the processor can't keep up.
