New Amlogic SoC: S905X3, S905Y3, S905D3 with Cortex-A55 plus S805X2 and S922D

We already have the specifications of the new SoC’s from Amlogic with the names S905X3, S905Y3 and S905D3 that as a big novelty will use the ARM Cortex-A55 CPU cores, this new cores greatly exceed the ARM Cortex-A53 that are so widespread today.

New features in Cortex-A55

The improvements of the ARM Cortex-A55 cores internally are extensive with a new management of the L1 and L2 caches, updates in the NEON / FPU engine or with the introduction of the ARMv8.2 instructions. These SoCs also add a specific processor for Artificial Intelligence tasks that can be very useful for voice recognition functions in the TV-Boxes. Note that the GPU of this new generation is not updated, continues the ARM Mali-G31 MP2 that gives such good results.

Also within the AMlogic Roadmap are the new S805X2, S922D and other SoC’s that complete the AMlogic catalog.

Amlogic Roadmap 2018 n03

Amlogic S905X3

Without a doubt, the most interesting SOC is the Amlogic S905X3, a Quad Core with ARM Cortex-A55 processors and an CPU Mali-G31 MP2. This direct heir to the S905X2 continues to support video output up to 4K@75fps resolutions with HDR support and native support for USB 3.0 and PCIe interfaces. A product still under development in a early definition phase.

Amlogic S905Y3

The S90Y3 is undoubtedly a variant of the S905X3 for TV-Sticks and low-price boxes, that will be basic at connectors level and perhaps in some video feature. The CPU + GPU configuration is the same as in the S905X3

Amlogic S905D3

The S905D3 is a variant of the S905X3 of which we have no data but certainly judging its definition will be basically an S905X3 with support for internal DVB-T2, Satellite and Cable tuners.

Amlogic S922D

The S922D is a variant of the S922X (Hexa Core with ARM Cortex-A73 and Cortex-A53) that we hope to see in the coming weeks in action, which judging by its definition would add native support for satellite / HD / cable TDT tuners and a Dedicated AI coprocessor capable with a performance of 2.5 TOPS and 5.0 TOPS.

Amlogic S805X2

Of the S805X2 we have very few data, we only know that it would be a low-cost SoC would include CPU + GPU of last generation and limited to video with a maximum FHD resolution.

Other SoC Amlogic with ARM Cortex-A55 cores

Within the same route plan of Amlogic we find its new processors in many more sectors.

  • Sound bars and smart speakers:
    – A113L Single Core and T962E2 Quad Core.
  • Smart cameras:
    – A113D2 Quad Core, A321X and A321L Quad Core
  • Smart TV (like the Xiaomi TV)
    – T962X2, T962X2, T968X2 Quad Core and T962D2 with cores A55 + A73 possibly

ARM Cortex A55 core
