Tanix TX5 Plus a new Box with S905X2 SoC and 4GB of RAM

2

All Chinese brands are striving to launch their new Boxes with Amlogic’s new SoC for the Christmas campaign and today we find the new Tanix TX5 Plus. A Box based on the S905X2 SoC, chip that has given us some pretty good results in our first review and that includes 4GB of serial RAM. As a novelty some detail as its external WiFi antenna and little more for a computer that works with the usual Android 8.1.

 

SoC, RAM and storage

The new Box Tanix TX5 Plus includes the recent SoC of AMlogic S905X2, a Quad Core that reaches up to 1.8 GHz and integrates a new and powerful GPU Mali-G31 MP2. As a novelty in video playback we have a new VPU with TruLife 8th generation that integrates specific hardware to encode and decode h.265 and VP9 codecs. We have on board the usual 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 32GB of eMMc storage memory that can be extended from the microSD card reader that includes this equipment on the side of its plastic box.

Other features

At the level of wireless connectivity for the Tanix TX5 Plus, we found Dual Band Wifi with an external antenna and Bluetooth 4.2. The connectors included in the plastic box are a USB 2.0 port, another USB 3.0, a Gigabit Ethernet connector, an SPDIF digital audio port and an HDMI 2.0 video output with 4K @ 60fps support.

Price on offer

  • The TV Box Tanix TX5 Plus can be purchased at Gearbest.com from $ 69.50 shipping included.

The guys in Tanix have spoiled the Tx6 by putting an android 9 os and downgrade the CPU… because of that, every video is a glitch/stutter fest and you can not downgrade to an android 7 with 1.8ghz clock or if you do, your wifi-/bt chip wont work as it is a different chip than they build the andro 7.0 os for.

What they have to do is release a glitch/stutter free android 7.0 OS with SP6330 chip so that the new users that they trapped in can enjoy the somewhat capable box glitch-free

Sure the problems is in the codecs of the firmware and the VPU.
CPU performance is not important, VPU and codecs do all the work.
Android 9 firmware is a pile of trash, for sure.
