The X99 is an Android TV Box built to play high resolution 4K UHD videos as well as games and other media.
It comes with some impressive hardware with the fast RK3399 CPU and 4GB of DDR3 RAM.
The RK3399 CPU is currently one of the fastest built for Android Boxes and has come down in price recently.
This gives it some good hardware which I ran some test on below to see how well it performed.
*This unit was sent to me to review with my honest opinion and results below.
RAM: 4GB DDR3
GPU: ARM Mali-T860MP4
Operating System: Android 7.1
Dual Band 802.11ac WiFi
I also installed some of the current top add-ons which it had no problems with.
While the X99 has the hardware to play HD 4K video Netflix streams will play at only standard definition.
Running AnTuTu Benchmark Version 6.2.6 gave an overall score of 76606.
UPDATE: Others having been getting different AnTuTu scores ranging from 60000-70000. This is likely due to AnTuTu recent updates. Version 6.2.6 was used for testing with no Apps running in the background.
Other scores are 3D: 1507, UX: 33855, CPU: 23427, RAM: 3817.
The X99 comes with some nice hardware for streaming videos and did not disappoint.
The AnTUTU score of 76606 is very good even higher than the Fire TV without the restrictions.
It will have no problem running Kodi, Netflix or most any other video streaming App.
I am still testing the unit so far with good results and will update if anything changes.
As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon, forums, or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
