The Difference Between Amlogic S922X and S912

Amlogic has always been welcomed by the TV box market with its excellent technology, and Amlogic S922X and S912 are both very popular TV box chip solutions, so what is the difference between Amlogic S922X and S912 Soc? Today, the editor will give you a detailed explanation of the difference and comparison between Amlogic S922X and S912 Soc.


briefly introduce the S922X and S912 Soc

S922X is a 64-bit processor with 6-core ARM architecture. It adopts a quad-core A73 plus dual-core A53 core design with a maximum frequency of 2.0GHz.

S912 is an 8-core 64-bit high-end full 4K multimedia processor produced by Amlogic. Amlogic S912 adopts 28nm HKMG process. The internal integrated resources of the SoC are quite rich. The 8-core 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 processor, ARM Mali-T820MP3 GPU , Support Ultra HD 4K 60fps hardware decoding, support H.265/VP9 10-bit, H.264 and AVS+ and many other formats.


CPU is one of the main equipment of electronic computer, the core accessory in computer. Its function is mainly to interpret computer instructions and process data in computer software.

In terms of CPU, S922X architecture uses 4-core A73+2-core A53, while S912 integrates 64-bit 8-core ARM Cortex A53 architecture with a maximum frequency of 1.5GHz, which can achieve lower power consumption while achieving high performance, and has a very high energy efficiency ratio. , It can be said that the 8-core S912 is the most powerful. A 64-bit 8-core chip like the S912, coupled with the super GPU performance, will make the TV picture quality better.


Compared with S922X, S912 is upgraded to 8-core processor, and GPU is upgraded from Mali-450 to Mali-T820MP3, the performance improvement is still very significant.

In addition, S912 supports operator-level security mechanisms, which is the perfect choice for DVB, OTT and IPTV smart set-top boxes and smart home applications.


Maximum supported memory of S912 is 3GB, and S922X is 4GB. 3GB of memory can already meet daily needs. Of course, the larger the capacity, the faster the running speed.

Decoding ability

chip decoding means that there is a dedicated hardware responsible for the decoding of video encoding. There are many encoding methods. Of course, the centralized decoding method integrated in a dedicated decoding chip may mainly deal with several corresponding decoding mechanisms.
In terms of decoding capabilities, S922X supports up to [email protected], and S912 supports up to [email protected] The mainstream formats supported are similar, and the difference is not very big.

On the system version

S922X is Android 9.0/11 version, S912 is Android 7.1 version. Of course, this is not a very important parameter, but because of the launch time issue, the version will be different, and it can be upgraded later. The impact is not big.
