Default 4K UHD Blu-ray Playback on PC Desktop is officially dead in 2021?

Starting in Q1 2021 when Intel releases their next generation microarchitecture of processors there will be no longer be any new desktop processors that support the hardware needed for 4K UHD Blu-ray DRM.

Neither of the Intel 11th generation Desktop processors that will be available (Mainstream Rocket Lake S / HEDT/Server Ice Lake X/SP) will support both Intel SGX & integrated graphics which is what is required for the DRM to enable native PC 4K UHD Blu-ray hardware playback.

Intel's upcoming 10th generation mainstream part Comet Lake S appears it will be the last generation of PC desktop CPU anytime soon to support 4K UHD Blu-ray DRM.

So, will the BDA remove the Intel SGX requirement then or is 4K UHD Blu-ray on PC desktop officially dead as of Q1 2021?
