The new Amlogic S928X multimedia processor has just been presented within the framework of the ICB2022 that is being held in Amsterdam these days, which emphasizes its decoding up to 8K.
A new chip from this popular brand that is integrated into the TV-Box SEI 8K Box developed by SEI Robotics, one by ZTE and another developed by the Chinese giant Skyworth. Some Boxes that mark the starting signal for a processor that will surely arrive in stores before Christmas.
We have no news about the built-in operating system, although we will surely have Android TV 12 certified, since these two companies already have different Boxes on the market with all the necessary certifications to watch paid streaming platforms in maximum quality.
Amlogic S928X SoC Specifications
We do not know the exact cores of the Amlogic S928X SoC, only that it combines ARM Cortex-A76 and ARM Cortex-A55 cores with a processing power of 36K+ DMIPS and that it is manufactured in 12nm like the Amlogic S922X SoC.
We have no data on the GPU, but it is certain to be the latest generation, since we have support for HDR10 + / HLG, Dolby Vision, Vivid HDR and for the HDMI 2.1a video output interface capable of outputting video up to 8K at 60 fps . In the field of sound technologies we have compatibility with Dolby Audio, Dolby Atmos and DTS. We will only see these audio and video protocols in certified TV-Boxes, not in future low-cost boxes without brands such as SEI or ZTE behind them.
- We expect the new Amlogic S928X SoC to hit the market in the coming months to take advantage of the Christmas campaign.
