Let me first introduce the Android 10 OS that S905X4 tv box will be equipped with. Yes, I have been expecting amlogoic to release the android 10 tv box. It will be used first in amlogic s905x4. Maybe other models have already been equipped with android 10 (such as rockchip rk3318, rk3328,allwinner H313, H6,H616...These are common tv box firmware solutions), S905X4 released android 10, s905x3 is still android 9.0, but I believe amlogic will support s905x3 android 10 firmware in the future. Remember, H96 max x4 uses amlogic s905x4 chips in 2021. s905x4 for android 10.
Coming soon. What is the difference between Amlogic s905x4 H96 max x4 vs s905x3 H96 max x3?
H96 max Amlogic S905X4 and s905x3 mainly increase the CPU frequency and support new video protocols. Everyone will understand by looking at the picture. The data shows: s905x4 has a 10% improvement over s905x3, mainly because the cpu is overclocked, and the new free video protocol of AV1 has been added.
However, the 12nm foundry is handed over to the foundry. The advantage is that the 12nm foundry is used for the third time, the price will be lower and the company's profit margin will be higher.
There are also disadvantages, that is, the thermal energy consumption is higher than that without using 10nm or more advanced processes. At that time, if you want to really play this s905x4
The performance is estimated to increase the cost in the cpu heat dissipation, as well as the stability of the cpu power supply. (Or if they don’t realize it,
It is estimated that our consumers will come to a wave of tutorials for various hard or cooling changes)
Amlogic S905X3 is an upgraded version of S905X2. The CPU is A55, which has higher performance and energy consumption ratio than A53. It also mainly supports 8K, Gigabit network/USB3.0)
The official data is 15%-25%, but the overall average of the data given by various foreign software evaluations has increased by about 10%. The main factor is
Choosing the foundry process or 12nm foundry, the advantage is that the price is further reduced (the principle is to place an order for s905x2 in the first year and an order for s905x3 in the second year
The price of the same 12nm process will be lower. )
The disadvantage is that the performance is improved, but the stable operating temperature of the downstream box manufacturer is not well controlled, which leads to the failure to achieve the desired improvement data.
(The principle is that s905x2 can output 100% but the temperature is well controlled and does not hit the temperature control protection wall, but s905x3 can only
90% of the output reaches the cpu temperature control protection wall and automatically reduces the frequency)
According to my incomplete statistics on domestic and foreign websites: the maximum temperature of s905x2 is around 60 ℃; the maximum temperature of s905x3 is around 80 ℃.
(This is why some users reported that the s905x3 product would sometimes freeze because of the temperature wall.)
Long-term high temperature operation will affect the hardware loss. Because the chip module is the main heating component of the TV box, once it is overheated, the chip,
The system bears the brunt. The user will obviously feel that the system is unresponsive, freezes, blue screen, and flash back; while the WiFi module is overheated, it is manifested in
The network transmission speed drops and there is a significant network delay. In addition, the TV box that has been overheated for a long time,
The motherboard will age faster.

Summary: In 2020, I have been expecting that amlogic will update android 9 to android 10. Now it will be implemented in 2021, including many users and customers before contacting us to inquire whether we have H96 s905x4 model, then now this good news is coming, we will be in H96 max X4 will be released in 2021, which is an upgraded version of H96 max x3 and supports OTA. We have contacted various distributors and will provide amlogic S905X4 H96 max x4 samples for free. If you need it, please contact us. Of course, the quantity is limited. The sooner you contact us, the sooner you will receive our samples. Enquiry Email to: [email protected]
