8K TV box powered by Amlogic S928X Cortex-A76/A55 processor showcased at IBC 2022

Amlogic S928X multi-core Cortex-A76/A55 8K media processor, which may have been initially known as S908X, is being showcased at ICB2022 in Amsterdam in the “SEI 8K Box” developed by SEI Robotics.

Amlogic S908X/S928X was first discovered in a roadmap in 2019 and was expected to launch by the end of 2020 at the time. But after a long wait of nearly three years, the Amlogic S928X processor is finally showing in SEI 8K box with an HDMI 2.1a 8K video interface, supports for HDR and advanced audio codecs like Dolby Atmos and DTS, and support for Smart Home functions through an IoT module with WiFi 6E, Zigbee and more.

Amlogic S928X 8K TV Box

SEI 8K box preliminary specifications:

  • SoC – Amlogic S928X multi-core Cortex-A76/A55 processor, next-gen GPU (likely Mali-G610?); 12nm process
  • System Memory – 64-bit DDR
  • Storage – eMMC flash
  • Video Output
    • HDMI 2.1a up to 8Kp60 (7680 x 4320 resolution) with HDR10+/HLS, Dolby Vision, HDR Vivid
    • AV port for composite video (based on the photo…)
  • Video codecs – 8Kp60 AV1/AVS3/VP9/H.265/AVS2 decoder
  • Audio
    • Stereo analog audio via AV port
    • S/PDIF audio output
    • Dolby Audio, Dolby Atoms, and DTS
  • Connectivity
    • Ethernet port
    • IoT module with Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi Mesh, Matter, Zigbee 3.0, and Thread
  • USB – 2x USB ports, 1x USB Type-C port

The Homatics-branded TV box can also be used as a Smart Home gateway through Google Assistant and the Homatics app. Despite the box being jointly announced by Amlogic and SEI Robotics, we have limited information about the Amlogic S928X from the IBC 2022 press release and the 2019 roadmap, since Amlogic did not feel the need to provide more details about the processor at this time. We don’t even know which operating system is running on the device, although I’d expect it to be Android 12.

The companies did not provide any available information for the box or processor.

“..and for the prices, it will be $199 for 4GB/32GB and $249 for 8GB/64GB.”

my guess.

Android 12 would require a new Amlogic BSP kernel fork forward ported to 5.10, right?

Ok, so Amlogic’s 5.4.125 possible as well. Won’t change much wrt hopes for mainline kernel support anyway…

It is good to see the SOC finally begin to see the light of day.

Naturally, comparisons with the Rockchip RK3588, it’s likely natural competitor, will be good to see when we see a little more information.

RK3588 claims 100K DMIPS from CPU, and S928X claims 36K+, according to this detail, I guess S928X has dual A76 @ 1.8GHz compared to RK3588 with quad a76 @ 2.4GHz

Detail? RFLMAO! Where’s the source for this funny RK3588 BS number?

You know that Dhrystone is a 100% irrelevant single-threaded benchmark from almost 40 years ago (multiplying single-threaded scores with count of CPU cores to generate ‘multi’ cores is even more stupid than still using this benchmark).

DMIPS are for marketing departments only.

Don’t need 8K, need [email protected] 10 bit HDR. It would be enough!!! Just stop!!!

If it can do [email protected] 10-bit, it can probably do [email protected] 10-bit.
