It's not that difficult
Vertex/Integral2 and upcoming Maestro/Diva/Vertex2 can all do any scaling operation from 1080p to any 2160p or any 2160p scaling to any 1080p (means FHD <> UHD with following conversion at the same time : hdcp, chroma, colordepth, colorspace)
They all can pass thru any video or audio signal in existence today within 18Gbps/600MHz bandwidth (including any HDMI1.x res, any PC res, etc... everything in existence) > HDCP conversion possible on any of them.
They all can pass thru original signal untouched or modified, user choice, and perform changes on a secondary output to feed a sink with different max capabilities.
The only thing not possible on signal operation is FRAME RATE CONVERSION. so if 1080p60 in, then 4K60 out, if 4K24 in, then 1080p24 out, etc...
Linker have 2 limitations compared to above devices: It cannot HDCP convert 3D or 1080i or PC signals and it cannot change colorpace, except for one type via 3x3 matrix.
+Maestro offers 18Gbps over 330ft via HDBT
+ Diva offers 1080p SDR output (embedded HDR>SDR converter)
Basically, those devices allow to take in the best possible of HDMI1.x (up to 1080p60 4:4:4 12b) and output the best possible for HDMI2.0b (up to 4K60 4:2:2 12b or 4K60 4:4:4 8b) or take in the best HDMI2.0b and output the best possible for HDMI1.x.
This ensure that no matter which HDMI1.x or HDMI 2.0 (or 2.0a or 2.0b) devices you have, they all get the best possible at the same time from/to any HDMI1.x or HDMI2.0 (or 2.0a or 2.0b) devices.
X4 can do anything, accept any res, output any res, change frame rate, change aspect ratio, etc... Basically it can do in HDMI1.x what LRP or OPPO203 can do in HDMI2.0b
Above is only the difference on signal operation, each device have more or less of others features. (ex: Diva/Maestro have 4 inputs / 3 outputs, while Integral2/Vertex have 2 inputs/2outputs, etc.. or Diva/Maestro have webserver, while Integral2/Vertex have windows GUI and Android/iOS APP support with GoBlue, etc..)
