As you can see the specs speak for themselves with both the dual core android TV box and the quad core set top box. Our Android TV Boxes come loaded with the latest versions of Android. Our android set top boxes use only the best processors which happen to be the AMlogic chipsets. AMLogic are the highest quality and fastest android processors around. We don’t use lower quality, slower chipsets like the Allwinner and Rockchip. We simply won’t settle for inferior parts for our Android TV boxes. Both our dual core and quad core android TV boxes come with fastest highest quality graphics processing units that are available. We use mali gpu’s exclusively in all of our dual core & quad core android TV boxes. Mali GPU’s are the fastest on the market and are known as the best throughout the set top box market. We currently use the Mali 400 Quad core GPU in our dual core android TV boxes. In our quad core android TV boxes with use the mali 450 Octa core GPU’s. If you are seeing a trend it is because we do not skimp on our boxes in any way.  

Hardware Acceleration / Hardware Decoding

There are tons of set top boxes that promise full 1080P HD movies. IF you happen to read the reviews on almost all of these boxes you will start to see a trend. 90% of the complaints other android TV boxes receive is due to HD video files playing choppy and lagging. So why do all of these dual core and quad core android TV boxes have problems playing 1080P HD movies? The reason they have this issue is that KODI by default pushes all of the video processing directly to the AMLogic processor instead of the Mali GPU. When this happens the AMLogic processor gets overloaded with video processing and becomes choppy. The AMLogic is not designed to process video and can have issues keeping up. The mali 400 & 450 are designed to process video and can handle 1080P HD Movies with no problem. This is where Hardware Acceleration / Hardware Decoding come into play. Our Version of KODI was carefully constructed to include what the industry calls Hardware Acceleration / Hardware Decoding. What Hardware Acceleration / Hardware Decoding does is force KODI to push all of the video processing to the mali 400 & mali 450 graphics processing unit. This allows the SkystreamX to play full 1080P HD movies and TV Shows at 24 frames per second with no problems. This also frees up the AMLogic dual core and quad core CPU to run at lowers levels and improves the overall speed of the SkystreamX Quad core android TV box. Be very careful when you are purchasing any other android TV box besides the SkystreamX. Most likely it does not have Hardware Acceleration / Hardware Decoding built in and will make your 1080P HD video files run poorly to the point that they become unwatchable.

Android KODI Addons

If you have been looking around the internet for quad core or dual core android TV boxes I’m sure you have found that every company claims to be the quad core or dual core android TV box since sliced bread. They all claim to have KODI that runs 1080P with no problems. If you purchase one of these android set top boxes you will turn them on, click on KODI and be left wondering how to watch movies, TV shows and live sports. KODI itself does not come with any addons built in. So basically you have a box that has a program on it that can play video on your TV, but no way to find the content that you want to watch. This is where the SkystreamX Quad core android TV box makes all other android TV boxes look inferior. Here at skystreamX we program our boxes with all of the best KODI addons.
