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.
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.
