I found this on Amazon, but I am not sure if it supports Xeon W processor as the product description states mainly i5/i7(kabylake series)

Uh.... the kind of processor has no bearing on if a Bluray drive will work or not. Support will depend on connectivity (in this case... USB 3.0), OS support and driver availability.

MacOS can support Bluray as a storage medium... but does not support playback of Bluray movies out of the box. You need 3rd party software to do that.

I wanna play UHD/4k Bluray. There is Q&A (first on the screenshot) there saying it requires the CPU to support SDX. The Xeon W on imac pro seems not supporting it?
