UPDATE: We already have Beelink GT1 MINI 2 Amlogic S905X3 Review
Do you know that GT1-mini S905X2 CPU gets a new upgrade?
The fresh version is 905X3.
So let’s compare it to the S905X2 and see how it differs whenever it is upgraded.
In comparison to the S905X2, S905X3 is the Cortex-A55 cores could Supply far more performance than compared to Cortex-A53 in memory, benchmarks, about 20 to 30% performance enhancement for tasks at the exact frequency.
Amlogic S905X3 Furthermore has few optional attributes like the Neural Network Accelerator and a Cortex-M4 core for always-on processing.
S905X3 is an advanced application processor built for hybrid OTT/IP Set Top Box (STB) and high-end media box apps. It integrates a strong CPU/GPU subsystem.
The main system Processor is a quad-core ARM Cortex-A55 Chip with unified L3 cache to update system experience.
In addition, the Cortex-A55 Cores is made up of the NEON SIMD co-processor to update software media processing capability. The graphics subsystem consists of 2 graphics engines and a flexible video/graphics output pipeline. The ARM G31 MP2 GPU handles all OpenGL ES 3.2 Vulkan 1.0 and OpenCL 2.0 graphics applications, even though the 2.5D graphics cpu handles another scaling, alpha, rotation, and colour space conversion operations. Together, the Chip and GPU handle all operating systems, networking, user-interface and gaming related tasks.
The video output pipeline marks Dolby Vision optional, HDR10+, HDR10, HLG and PRIME HDR processing, BT.709/BT.2020/BT.2100 processing, motion adaptive edge enhancing de-interlacing, flexible programmable scalar, and a lot of picture enhancements filters before passing the enhanced picture to the video output ports.
Amlogic Video Engine (AVE-10) off-loads the Cortex-A55 Cores from all video CODEC processing. It has dedicated hardware video decoder and encoder.
AVE-10 is in a position of decoding 4Kx2K resolution video at 60fps with complete Trusted Video Path (TVP) for secure applications and supports full formats such as MVC, MPEG-1/2/4, VC-1/WMV, AVS, AVS+, AVS2 RealVideo, MJPEG streams, H.264, H265-10, VP9 and moreover JPEG shots with no size limitation. The independent encoder is capable to encode in JPEG or H.265/H.264 up to Full-HD at 60fps.
This new S905x3 In addition support 3D, Dynamic HDR (w/EMP), CEC and HDCP2.2, ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) support, stereo audio DAC, a CVBS output, multiple TDM, PCM, I2S and SPDIF digital audio input/output interfaces, and 8 channel far-field PDM digital microphone (DMIC) inputs.
It moreover has built-in Voice Activity Detection (VAD) module for ultra-low power operations during system standby.
S905X3 In addition integrates a set of functional blocks for digital TV broadcasting streams. The built-in two demuxers can process the TV streams from the serial and parallel transport stream input interface, which could attach to an external tuner/ demodulator. The processor has the rich advanced network and peripheral interfaces, including a 10/100/1000M Ethernet MAC with RGMII, 10/100M Ethernet PHY, a set of multi-PHY for USB2, USB3 and PCIe, and multiple SDIO/SD card controllers, UART, I2C, high-speed SP I and PWMs.
The standard development environment utilizing GNU/GCC Android toolchain is backed.
Next, we compare few real information, tests to see the actual change between S905X3 and S905X2.
When testing the data, it could be clearly seen that the overall performance of all aspects of S905X3 is higher than that of S905X2.
Beelink will represent the GT1 mini2 to swap the current GT1 mini, so stay tuned.
