Today we would like to present a new TV Box from Rikomagic called MK68. RKM MK68 is equipped with a Rockchip RK3368 processor, and the operating system Android Lollipop 5.1 (Rikomagic MK68 will be a one of the first TV Box to ship with Android 5.1).
Rockchip RK3368 processor was launched by the Chinese several months ago but, probably, its development has taken longer than expected, shifting the launch of devices that would integrated. It ‘an octa-core 1.5GHz SoC (Cortex A53) 64bit, made in 28nm, with GPU PowerVR G6110 and support for OpenGL ES 1.x / 2.0 / 3.x, OpenGL 3.2, DirectX 9.3, OpenCL 1.2 and EP Renderscript. In short, nothing surprising, but will be able to support playback of 4K video at 60 fps , with hardware decoding H.265.
IDF 2015 in Shenzhen Rockchip showed a prototype of the Mini PC/TV Box based on this SoC ensuring that, in a few weeks, we would see the first models on the market. Rikomagic MK68 could be one of them.
The device has a design similar to the other models Rikomagic and probably Rikomagic have adapted the case from the Rikomagic MK12. Inside the case, Rikomagic have equipped the MK68 with RK3368 processor, integrates 2GB of DDR3 RAM, 16GB storage of eMMC, WiFi dual band and Bluetooth 4.0 . As for connectivity, Rikomagic MK68 will be equipped with three USB 2.0 ports (one OTG), a microSD card reader, audio jacks, the HDMI 2.0 and Gigabit 10/100/1000 . The TV Box will turn on Android 5.1.
