Rikomagic has this week added a new addition to their range of TV boxes, in the form of the newly launched Rikomagic MK80 that is equipped with an Allwinner A80 Octa-Core processor.
Graphics on the Rikomagic MK80 system are powered by a 64-Core PowerVR G6230 offering support for OpenGL ES 3.0, OpenGL 3.X, DirectX 9.3/10 and OpenCL.
The Rikomagic MK80 TV box hardware is loaded with Google’s Android 4.4 operating system and is equipped with AP6335 Dual band 2.4Ghz/5Ghz WiFi, IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac. Together with connectivity provided by Bluetooth 4.0 and an SD card reader that is capable of accepting up to 64GB of extra storage.
Ports on the Rikomagic MK80 TV box include HDMI 1.4, 2 x USB Host, USB Host (OTG), Optical output, AV out, RJ45 10M/100M/1000M and SATA. The CNX Software website explains :
“There’s a three processors fight right now in the Android mini PC market with Rockchip RK3288, Allwinner A80, and Amlogic S802/S812 SoCs. All have their own strength and weaknesses, and have about the same performance, but so far I like Rockchip RK3288 for 3D gaming, Amlogic S802 and S812 for video playback, and Allwinner A80 for its possibly better potential to run Linux desktop distributions (TBC).
Rikomagic have already been selling Rikomagic MK902 II powered by Rockchip RK3288 processor for a little while, and they’ve now announced two new upcoming products: MK80 with Allwinnert A80, and MK12 with Amlogic S812.”
