    This is a couple of years old, but it gives you an idea of what SGX is...
    This is a list of hardware which supports Intel SGX - Software Guard Extensions

    If I understand what you wrote correctly, you tried to play a UHD BluRay disk on your PC.

    Do you have a BluRay drive that can play UHD movie disks? Most can't, even drives that support BDXL (up to 128GB per disc). The only drive I find online that is currently available is the Pioneer BDR-211UBK.

    I have an MSI mainboard, but take a look at the last entry, and see if you have that in UEFI:

    How come your RX 480 is not bottlenecked by that A6-6400K?
