Do you know that GT1-mini S905X2 CPU receives a new upgrade,
The fresh version is 905X3.
Why are the chips must be upgraded?
So let’s compare it to the S905X2 and see how it differs when it is upgraded.
In comparison to the S905X2, S905X3 is the Cortex-A55 cores could deliver additional functionality than compared to Cortex-A53 in memory, benches, around 20 to 30% performance improvement for tasks at the same frequency.
Amlogic S905X3 Additionally has few optional attributes like the Neural Network Accelerator and a Cortex-M4 core for always-on processing.
S905X3 is an advanced application processor designed for hybrid OTT/IP Set Top Package (STB) and high-end media package apps. It integrates a powerful CPU/GPU subsystem.
The base system Chip is a quad-core ARM Cortex-A55 Chip with unified L3 cache to improve system performance.
In addition, the Cortex-A55 Cores incorporates 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 programs, although the 2.5D graphics processor handles more scaling, alpha, rotation, and color space conversion operations. Together, the Processor and GPU handle all operating systems, networking, user-interface and gaming related tasks.
The video output pipeline sports 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 numerous image improvements 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 is dedicated hardware video decoder and encoder.
AVE-10 is capable of decoding 4Kx2K resolution video at 60fps with complete Trusted Video Path (TVP) for secure applications and supports full formats which include MVC, MPEG-1/2/4, VC-1/WMV, AVS, AVS+, AVS2 RealVideo, MJPEG streams, H.264, H265-10, VP9 and Additionally JPEG pics with with no size limitation. The independent encoder is in a position to encode in JPEG or H.265/H.264 up to Full hd at 60fps.
This fresh S905x3 moreover 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 moreover has built-in Voice Activity Detection (VAD) module for ultra-low power operations during system standby.
S905X3 moreover integrates a set of functional blocks for digital TV broadcasting streams. The built-in 2 demuxers could 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, like 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 supported.
Next, we compare number of real information, tests to see the actual change between S905X3 and S905X2.

When testing the information,, 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.
