First Chinese Box called H96 MAX V58 that we found mounting the powerful Rockchip RK3588 SoC, a chip that until now we have seen exclusively in development kits and boards.
The Rockchip RK3588 processor represents an interesting step forward in this type of chipset, since it is manufactured in 8nm LP with which we are going to have great efficiency and performance. Furthermore, this is the first SoC from Rockchip that already has support for AV1 video decoding and also in 8K resolution at 60fps.
The operating system is up-to-date with Android 12 and wireless connectivity already implements Wi-Fi 6 with a pair of external antennas. As always, we hope to carry out a comparative review of the RK5588 soon to see what power and novelties it offers us.
H96 MAX V58 Specifications
Inside the H96 MAX V58 we have as engine the Rockchip RK3588 processor manufactured in 8nm. A chip that integrates 4 ARM Cortex-A76 cores capable of reaching 2.4 GHz + another 4 ARM Cortex-A55 CPUs that reach up to 1.8 GHz. In the graphics section, we have a powerful ARM Mali-G610MC4 GPU.
The RAM is 4/8 GB LPDDR4 and the storage is 32/64 GB eMMc, we do not see a micro SD card reader so if we want to expand the storage we will have to use one of the USB ports.
As for network connectivity, in the H96 MAX V58 we find a Gigabit Ethernet port, WiFi 6 with dual antenna and Bluetooth 5.0. The connectors that we have in this case are a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0, SPDIF digital audio output and an HDMI 2.0a video output with support for resolutions up to 4k@60Hz.

Just boughst one from AliExpress. Replaced my Meecool KM6 Delux. Picture quality is noticeably better. Buffering on two of my three IPTV services is mostly gone. The only questionable item is the remote. It works fine as a normal remote but the first time I used the mouse feature, which allows you to move the mouse around by pointing the remote around the screen. I found it helpful while typing URLs, Usernames and Passwords. However, after being on for a while, I turned it off but it didn’t go away. The mouse answered the directional wheel. Couldn’t get the curser… Read more »
