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.

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.

  1. > We don’t even know which operating system is running on the device, although I’d expect it to be Android 12.

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

    1. Yes, I’ve seen ZTE and Skyworth, besides SEI Robotics, but just like the latter they don’t provide a lot of details.

  2. 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.

    1. 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

        1. Hiya, I don’t expect you to read this, or even do anything with it, but I thought I’d just offer this: It would be amazing if you could add (and use) a “Dolby Vision” tag for articles like this, oh, and to offer the option to sort the searches. 🙂

          1. I do have a Dolby Vision tag, but I forgot to use it in this article.

            I’m not sure it’s super useful because companies will sometimes/often copy/paste the processor specs without checking the details, and Dolby Vision may show up, but not be implemented into the product.

  3. I know it’s more expensive, but it’s not as ripe for the potential for Zigbee to just YOINK and start charging for stuff, I’d have loved it to have Z-Wave either instead of or as well as the Zigbee module. Open source FTW.
