UGOOS UT8 Pro and UGOOS UT8 Details
As you may have read before, the UGOOS UT8 series is powered by the powerful Rockchip RK3568 SoC. The RK3568 SoC is the chipset that was also used in Firefly’s Station P2 Mini PC / Geek PC. The RK3568 quad-core 64-bit Cortex-A55 processor, with brand new ARM v8.2-A architecture, has frequency up to 2.0GHz, the efficiency is greatly improved. With 22nm lithography process, it features low power consumption and high performance.
Besides, the RK3568 AI chipset integrated co-processors (GPU, VPU, NPU), and in addition to the video playback features (up to 4K @ 60fps), it is great for development projects. Device also has ARM Mali-G52 2EE GPU that support for OpenGL ES 1.1/2.0/3.2, OpenCL 2.0, Vulkan 1.1, 0.8 TOPS NPU for AI acceleration, 4Kp60 H.265/H.264/VP9 video decoding, and 1080p100 H.265/H.264 video encoding. Unfortunately this chip does not support AV1 decoding.
As for the differences between the UT8 Pro and the UT8, they are negligible. However, they can be meaningful during use. UGOOS UT8 Pro comes with 8GB RAM DDR4 and 64GB eMMC.
