The TV boxes are becoming increasingly popular and there are for all tastes and for all budgets, although usually the most popular are the Chinese models that are able to combine performance and offer them at a cheap cost that otherwise could have costed a lot more. Most of these devices use the Rockchip RK3188 SoC, a quad-core ARM Cortex A9 built using 28nm process.
Minix X7 and Enybox M8 Specs Price
But now it seems there is a new performer on the scene, AMLogic S802 thanks to superior performance and support for the new Ultra HD resolution. AMLogic has produced three models: S802 which has no audio pass-through via HDMI digital video output; S802D which supports this feature but only for Dolby and finally S802DD or S802-H which instead offers audio pass-through both the standard DTS and Dolby.
After the Tronsmart Vega S89 and Eny ES8 then there are two other new TV box that adopt this SoC, the Minix X7 and Enybox M8 . The first case is not just a reissue of the previous 2013 model in which the Rockchip RK3188 was changed upon by AMLogic S802-H , also known by the acronym AML8726-M8 . This SoC, such as Rockchip SoC, is a quad-core ARM Cortex A9 revision 4 to 28 nm, but with a clock rate of less than 2 GHz and ARM Mali GPU 450MP6. Performance aside, however, it is actually necessary that a device is present within the specific model S802-H so that there is full support for all the features offered. Minix could release during the second half of next May, at a price not yet known.
Also interesting is the Enybox M8 , despite should make use of the basic version of AMLogic S802, however, offers several other interesting features. M8 in fact be equipped with 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory, while for the ports and connections we will find the modules Bluetooth 4.0, 10/100 Ethernet and Wi-Fi 802.11ac. Two USB, A / V outputs and HDMI 1.4, microSD card reader and digital audio connector S / PDIF it will complete the endowment. Enybox M8 will also use the latest release of Google Android 4.4 KitKat, with a Metro style launcher owner. Enybox M8 should be available later this month through AliExpress cost of 72 Euros , inclusive of the remote control.
