Beelink GT1-mini 2 with updated SoC S905X3

Hi guys,
Do you know that GT1-mini S905X2 chip gets a fresh upgrade,
The fresh variant is 905X3.

Why are the chips really should be upgraded?

So let’s compare it to the S905X2 and look at how it differs whenever it is upgraded.
In comparison to the S905X2, S905X3 is the Cortex-A55 cores can Supply additional performance than compared to Cortex-A53 in storage, benches, around 20 to 30% experience enhancement for tasks at the exact frequency.

Amlogic S905X3 also has some optional attributes as the Neural Network Accelerator and a Cortex-M4 core for always-on processing.
S905X3 is an advanced application processor developed for hybrid OTT/IP Set Top Box (STB) and high-end media package applications. It integrates a powerful CPU/GPU subsystem.

The main system CPU is a quad-core ARM Cortex-A55 CPU with unified L3 cache to improve system experience.
In addition, the Cortex-A55 Cores sports the NEON SIMD co-processor to improve software media processing capability. The graphics subsystem consists of two 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 apps, while the 2.5D graphics processor handles far more scaling, alpha, rotation, and color space conversion operations. Along, the Processor and GPU handle all running systems, networking, user-interface and gaming related tasks.

The video output pipeline is made up of 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 prior passing the enhanced image to the video output ports.
Amlogic Video Engine (AVE-10) off-loads the Cortex-A55 Cores from all video CODEC processing. It marks 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 Additionally JPEG photos with with no size limitation. The independent encoder is able to encode in JPEG or H.265/H.264 up to Full hd at 60fps.

This fresh S905x3 Additionally support 3D, Dynamic HDR (w/EMP), CEC and HDCP2.2, ALLM (Auto Small 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 Furthermore 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 can connect to an external tuner/ demodulator. The cpu has the rich advanced network and peripheral interfaces, such as 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 typical development environment utilizing GNU/GCC Android toolchain is supported.
Next, we compare several real data tests to see the real change between S905X3 and S905X2.

When testing the information,, it could be clearly seen that the experience of all aspects of S905X3 is higher than that of S905X2.

Beelink will introduce the GT1 mini2 to replace the current GT1 mini, so stay tuned.
