Techgage recently had a chat with those at Intel who are deeply intwined in the H.265 development process, and it's given a couple of reasons why it's superior to H.264. More efficient compression algorithms (which sample from larger block sizes) and per-frame multi-threading (decode and encode) top the list. While it seemed unlikely that H.265 could live up to its promises of cutting the bit-rate of 1080p content by 50% and still retain the same IQ, Intel is willing to back those claims up."
