At the end of October, Amlogic announced three new platforms based on new processors, namely S905Y2, S905X2, and S922X at ICB 2018. As this brand is one of the main suppliers of chips to TV box makers (even Xiaomi uses SoCs of this brand in its Mi boxes), it has been quite expected to see many new TV boxes packed with it. Though there have been a few new models launched in the past two months, the Tanix TX5 Max looks more attractive due to several selling points. Before we get acquainted with them, you should know it is currently offered at $55.99.
First, the Tanix TX5 Max uses the same simple design style seen in other Tanix-branded TV boxes. The body is made of plastic, which carries the company’s logo on the top. On the back, it sports an antenna for enhanced WiFi signal. On the opposite side, there is a LED display to show the time and connected devices. Actually, it’s a compact TV box with dimensions of 11 x 11 x 2 cm and a weight of 180g.
As said, under the hood, the Tanix TX5 Max is packed with an Amlogic S905X2 chip, which uses four ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2GHz. It is paired with a G31 MP2 GPU, which supports 4? UltraHD video output at 60fps. This means that it supports not only for standard H.265, VP9, and HDR codecs but also Dolby Vision with HDR10+. Apart from this, the SoC is coupled with a 4GB DDR4 RAM and a 32GB of native storage. But the latter can be expanded up to 128GB via the microSD card slot. What we liked more is the Android 8.1 out of the box.
The Tanix TX5 Max is great in terms of connectivity options. It can connect to the internet not only through the Ethernet port supporting a maximum data transfer speed of 1000Mbps but also via the dual-band WiFi module. Also, to connect various wireless peripherals, this TV box comes with a Bluetooth 4.2 support. Anyway, the complete list of the interfaces includes the DC 5V, HDMI 2.0 p, LAN, optical S/PDIF out, USB 2.0, USB 3.0 ports and a microSD card slot.
This TV box absorbs all the strengths of the Amlogic S905X2 processor, and it stands out among its competitors or from previous versions of Tanix a lot. That’s why it can easily handle not only 4K UltraHD videos but also play heavy 3D games. The Tanix TX5 Max also supports 3D video, Airplay, DLNA, ISO files, Miracast, PAL, and so on. Thus, it’s a great choice for making a home entertainment center.
