We found in stores the new X99 Max one of the few Box models that are on the market with the latest generation Amlogic S922X SoC and that includes Android 9.0 as OS. A Smart Box with a very complete hardware configuration that highlights its 128GB of storage memory, Bluetooth 5.0 and Gigabit network connector. An interesting box for the paper but we do not know how it will work at the level of firmware updates, something to keep in mind if we spend more than $110 on a TV-Box.
SoC, RAM and storage
The X99 Max Smart Box includes the powerful Hexa Core Amlogic S922X SoC, with 4 ARM Cortex-A73 processors capable of reaching 1.8Ghz + 2 ARM Cortex-A53 processors that reach 1.9Ghz. The GPU is an ARM Mali-G52 MP6 that allows us to run powerful games like PUBG as we have seen in some REVIEW. At VPU level we have the Amlogic Video Engine processor with HDR, Dolby Vision, Advanced HDR10, HDR10 + support, etc.… The RAM is 4GB LPDDR4 and the storage is 128GB eMMc expandable thanks to a microSD card reader that we have on one side if we don’t have enough.
As for wireless connectivity, the X99 Max has WiFi aC and Bluetooth 5.0 with internal antenna. At the interface level we have a USB 3.0 port, another USB 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet connector, SPDIF digital audio output, an HDMI 2.1 and a 3.5mm jack of analog audio and video output on the perimeter of the quadrangular box.
