You seem to confuse things.
The AVC = H.264 files - even in 4K - can be decoded by HW decoders which are inside all modern GPUs .
For HEVC = H.265 files there are no HW decoders yet.
You can only play them by CPU or by Hybrid decoders using GPU shaders and CPU.
LAV supports both modes but only for 8bit HEVC clips and only for Nvidia and Intel.
The HEVC clips from the site you mentioned are 10bit clips and you will never see H/W playback for such files with current decoders.
Only CPU decoders can decode them right now.
The clip mentioned by you, has a lot of stuttering even using MPC-HC v1. 7.7.157 x64 on my Core i7-4790 with EVR-CP renderer.
But if I switch to EVR renderer, it plays fine using almost 100% CPU.
Try EVR and you will decode it without stuttering.
