Around May we’ll see the next generation of Android Mini PC’s, powered by the quad-core A12 Rockchip 3288 processor.
Few things about this new platform:
– 24nm, 1.8 Ghz, quad core
– can decode 4K movies (multi format)
– uses Mali T624
– resolutions up 3840×2160
– dedicated 2D processor (high performance)
– 1080P video encoding for H.264 and VP8
– hardware image enhancement
This post will be updated with devices that are rumored to use Rockchip 3288
– Rikomagic MK902-II
If you’re interested in pretty much the only Android TV Box that can render 3D BlurayISO you might want to wait a few weeks until your local retailer will have the new version in stock.
The improved version, which will be shipped starting with this week, has these differences: – chipset has been upgraded, from the HiSilicon Hi3716 CV200ES to Hisilicon Hi3718 (link to Hi3719C V100 Data Sheet)
– nand has been upgraded to eMMC, this move only is reported to cut boot time in half and to make things snappier – well done, Himedia.
– GPU has been upgraded from a dual core @1.2Ghz to the quad core version at 1.2Ghz
Other info: they are working on an update to their dedicated video player that will add native support for DVD-ISO, making this unit the first android TV box with full ISO support.
Also, XBMC should now working flawlessly.
Will report back if I get my hands on a sample
