Today we present our comparative and benchmarks of the new Amlogic S922X SoC’s against the all of current SoC in the market installed in the TV-Boxes. This new SoC is a Hexa Core model big.LITTLE with 4 ARM Cortex-A73 processors + 2 RAM processors Cortex-A53 and ARM GPU Mali-G52 MP6, at VPU level we have native support for H.265 video and VP9 up to 4K@75fps with latest generation HDR support. A chip destined for the high-end TV-Box within its sector that faces against the options of Allwinner, Rockchip, Hisilicon or Realtek. SPECIFICATIONS AMLOGIC S922X Test hardware To perform the comparative of this SoC, we will use the TV-Box Beelink GT-King with the new S922X. We have as memory 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage eMMc, WiFi ac MiMo dual band with two internal antennas and Bluetooth 4.1. Connectivity level we have two USB 3.0 port as a novelty, USB 2.0, microSD card reader, Gigabit Ethernet connector, AV jack, SPDIF and an HDMI 2.1 port that allows video output 4K@75fps. Read the Beelink GT-King FULL REVIEW to know all the details of this TV-Box. General specifications The Amlogic S922X SoC is the most powerful chip that comes to replace the current S912, this SoC has a Hexa Core configuration with four Cortex-A73 cores and two other Cortex-A53 low consumption, in the graphical section we have a powerful Mali-G52 MP6 GPU. It has native connections for HDMI 2.1 that reaches up to 4K@75fps compatible with multiple DRM security systems, USB 3.0 support, internal storage up to eMMC 5.0, Gigabit Ethernet and audio capacity up to 8 channels of audio input and output. In the graphical section we have an important jump in the GPU since now it is integrated a Mali-G52 MP6 up to 800MHz manufactured in 16nm that far exceeds the previous Mali-T820 MP3 of the S912. In the video section on your VPU we now have an image processor called Advanced Video Engine Gen10 that allows us to decode the most modern video formats with advanced HDR support. CPU The new Amlogic S922X Hexa Core SoC has four ARM Cortex-A73 cores capable of reaching 1.8Ghz with 1MB L2 cache + 2 Cortex-A53 RAM processors with 256k L2 cache, the theoretical maximum speed is 1.9Ghz. This cores are manufactured in 12nm which gives us improvements in performance by lowering the consumption and thermals. As always in this type of products, […]
We’ve known the main features of Amlogic S905Y2 and S905X2 processors namely an upgrade to an Arm Mali-G31MP2 GPU with OpenGLES 3.1, and support for USB 3.0 The S905X2 SoC is specially designed for TV Box, for example: H96 Max X2. The S905Y2 SoC is designed for OTT 4K HDMI dongles / HDMI Sticks, for example: X96S.

Amlogic have released the successor to the immensely popular Amlogic S905X – the Amlogic S905X2. The new chipset add support for USB 3.0 for faster data transfers and HDMI 2.1 – allowing for higher resolutions. So how does the new Amlogic S905X2 compare with Amlogic’s other popular chipset – the octa-core Amlogic S912 SoC. Let’s compare the S905X2 vs S912 to find out which is the best chipset. Amlogic S905X2 vs S912: Specifications: Let’s take a look at the specifications of these two popular Android TV box chipsets: Amlogic S905X2 vs S912: Performance: It’s interesting to see that despite the Amlogic S912 chipset boasting more cores thanks to its 8 Cortex-A53 ARM cores in a big.LITTLE design, the Amlogic S905X2’s 4 cores are clocked faster at up to 2.0Ghz. Whilst this means that the Amlogic S912 performs better in multi-core workloads such as multi-tasking, the faster single core performance of the Amlogic S905X2 should provide a slightly better experience when using Android apps, navigating the UI and other day-to-day tasks. It’s also important to call out that the Amlogic S905X2 is the first Amlogic processor to include support for high-speed USB 3.0, offering much faster transfer speeds – perfect for playing high resolution movies from your USB drive or hard drive.
Amlogic S905X2 vs Amlogic S905X, what is new? Many people know that Amlogic S905X is the most successful CPU in the OTT TV box market. Amlogic S905X2 is actually an updated version of Amlogic S905X. Amlogic S905X2 has a NEW thing compared with S905X: it support for USB 3.0 and HDMI 2.1 (in theory capable of supporting up to 10K resolutions), although HDMI 2.1 is not a practical point at this moment. To be simple, Amlogic S905X2 has USB 3.0 while Amlogic S905X has USB 2.0 only. S905D is a variant of the S905X2 (they come with the same hardware configuration), but it has native support for TDT, satellite and Cable tuners. With the new process at 14nm this type of TV Box will have a more controlled temperature, something that is appreciated since they tend to be products that get very hot. In short, both Amlogic S905X2 and S905D have support for USB 3.0 and HDMI 2.1. Amlogic S905X2 Main Specifications: * USB3.0/PCIE2.0 (PCIE or USB3.0 with multiplexed IO) * Enhanced 8-ch I2S interface * HDMI 2.1: 4Kx2K@75 * Support multi-video decoder up to 4Kx2K@60fps+1x1080P@60fps (Better video decoder than S905X/S912) * H.265/H.264 video encoding up to 1080P@60fps with low latency * Build-in Cortex-M4 core for always on processing * Build-in Cortex-M3 core for system control processing(S905X/S912 also feature with this) * Support LPDDR4@3200 * Amlogic S905X2 build-in 100M PHY and 1000M MAC
Now android 6.0 TV Box is still mainstream models on the market, although Google already released Android 7.0 and Android 7.1 OS about half an year.
