    The newer S905X3 on my Droidbox x3mini (4gb ddr4 and 64scores over 78000 on average and 80000 on good days which beats the the S905X2 BY OVER 30% for the same price point oe cheaper which makes the S912 look really old and past its sell by date!

    Of course numbers are not everything, but the quad core box wins when it comes to numbers. You’d expect that an octa core box would win from a quad core box. I am one of the people who, strangely, always go for the higher specs on paper..

    Just wanted to point out that the s912 is better for gaming when playing newer games that support Opengl ES 3.0

    Amlogic S905X2 is a 1.5Ghz processor. Amlogic again lied in commercial advertisement at first launch that its a 2Ghz, then now it claims 1.8Ghz. Its the same in the past that they lied many times on their processors speeds.
