Amlogic S905X2

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.

However, Amlogic S905Y2 is also a CPU featuring USB3.0 or PCIE2.0 and HDMI 2.1: [email protected]
Amlogic S905Y2
We carefully studied the datasheet from Amlogic and found no big difference between these two chipsets, which means Amlogic S905X2 = S905Y2 in most aspects, but S905X2 comes with LAN and AV ports; S905Y2 without these 2 ports.
