UT6 Android TV Box is available in two versions: 1GB RAM / 8GB Flash and 2GB RAM / 16GB Flash.
RK3229 is a Quad-core ARM Cortex-A7MP Core processor with 32KB/32KB L1 I-Cache/D-Cache per CPU and Unified 256KB L2 Cache. For this SoC, Rockchip added ARM Mali400 MP2 with Embedded 4 shader cores included shared hierarchical tiler. GPU shows high performance for OpenGL ES1.1 and 2.0, OpenVG1.1 etc. HDMI interface in UGOOS UT6 can support YUV420 4k x 2k @ 60fps. Support for 4k x 2k and 3D video formats. Support for up to 10.2bps bandwidth. Compliant HDMI 2.0. Compliance HDMI compliance Test specification 1.4. Support HDCP 2.2.
