X5 PRO a Box for emulation with Rockchip RK3588S and SATA3

A new Box for emulation that appears on AliExpress with the name of X5 PRO and this time includes a fairly powerful SoC such as the Rockchip RK3588S.

Highlights of this Box is its SATA 3 port where we can connect a storage unit up to 18 TB, although a more practical option and in line with the times would have been to implement an M.2 port. As operating system we have a dual system with Android 12 and another platform that we do not know that includes more than 40 emulators such as PS2, WII, Gamecube, Sega Saturn…

As engine, we find a Rockchip RK3588S processor, a SoC that has had a fairly restricted use and that we have only seen in development boards and few models of devices. Also, noteworthy is its dual video output, its 8 GB of RAM, its good wireless connectivity with Wi-Fi 6.and that in its basic configuration comes with a 256 GB HDD loaded with 10,000 games. X5 PRO
