Today we have the first TV-Box with Android that will use the new top-end SoC AMLogic S922X. This time Beelink is the first brand to announce a Box with this SoC, the model name is Beelink GT-King and will also bring Android 9.0. The new SoC Amlogic S922X is a chip that we saw few weeks ago in some Benchmarks and that will be a good step forward in terms of power and video quality compared to the previous generation. As always we hope to carry out the review of the new Beelink GT1-K as soon as it arrives at stores and to check first-hand the performance of the new Amlogic SoC.
SoC, RAM and storage
The Beelink GT-King includes the new Amlogic S922X SoC, a Hexa Core manufactured in 12nm with 4 ARM Cortex-A73 processors capable of reaching 1.8Ghz + 2 Cortex-A53 RAM processors that reach 1.9Ghz. The GPU manufactured in 16nm is an ARM Mali-G52 MP6 (improved over the announced MP4) with a maximum speed of 846MHz compatible with OpenGL ES 3.2 and Vulkan 1.0 that allows us to run powerful games such as PUBG without problems.
At the VPU level we have the Amlogic Video Engine (AVE-10) with all types of HDR support, Dolby Vision, Advanced HDR10, HDR10 +, HLG, PRIME HDR and support for REC709 / BT2020 profiles. We also have digital audio DAC integrated in the audio aspect. The RAM is 4GB LPDDR4 and the storage in principle is of the eMMc type with a capacity of 64GB expandable thanks to a microSD card reader that we have on one side.
In terms of wireless connectivity, the Beelink GT-King has WiFi ac MiMo and Bluetooth 4.2 with internal antenna. At the level of interfaces, we observed two USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 OTG port, a Gigabit Ethernet connector, an SPDIF digital audio output, an HDMI 2.1 and a 3.5mm audio jack at the perimeter of the plastic box.
Among the accessories in addition to the HDMI cable and DC adapter we will have an RF remote control that on this occasion will include gyroscope to handle the pointer (confirmed).
Price and availability
- The new Beelink GT-King with Amlogic S922X SoC will arrive in mid-April to stores at a price that we do not know at the moment.
This box will be fast, made to compete with the shield, nvidia is upgrading the shield, many new boxes have step their game hence
Shield still will be more powerful… and more expensive.
New shield maybe will be only a refresh of the soc with better thermals, will see..
How can I be notified of new posts such as when you review this box?
Follow us in twitter, facebook or RSS
Of course, learning from consumers…
the 922 will have a baseline of 64g emmc, fast write speed to external sdcard up to 256g, usb 3.1 And type C… What are the chances?
12nm vs 28nm, cortex a73 cores, new VPU, new DAC, new GPU….
This SoC is only USB 3.0 not possible USB 3.1
I am surprised that they did not make the Bluetooth – 5.0 for the increased range and compatibility. Does the s922x not provide for this?
SoC is irrelevant, dependent on the wifi+bt chip integrated in the box.
