Amlogic S905X2 has a NEW thing compared with S905X: it support for USB 3.0 and HDMI 2.1 (in theory capable of supporting up to 10K resolutions), although  HDMI 2.1 is not a practicla point at this moment.

To be simple, Amlogic S905X2 has USB 3.0 while Amlogic S905X has USB 2.0 only.

S905D is a variant of the S905X2 (they come with the same hardware configuration), but it has  native support for TDT, satellite and Cable tuners. With the new process at 14nm this type of TV-Box will have a more controlled temperature, something that is appreciated since they tend to be products that get very hot.

In short, both Amlogic S905X2 and S905D have support for USB 3.0 and HDMI 2.1.
