89 dualcore Android stick PC leaves MK802 in the dust

first_imgAndroid-based HDMI stick PCs are exploding in popularity right now with the geek crowd, and a new model promises a substantial upgrade in processing power while still selling for less than $100. This new stick made its debut on YouTube yesterday, and it’s packing a Rockchip RK3066 dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor clocked at 1.6GHz and 1GB of DDR3 RAM. That’s a big improvement over the MK802, which offers a single-core 1.5GHz ARM Cortex A-8 processor. It’s also significantly better than the Z902, which just appeared last week.In addition to a dual-core chip that’s based on a newer, more efficient architecture, the new stick PC also offers 4GB of internal storage and microSD expansion, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, and two USB ports (one full-size and one micro). On the software side, you’ll get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed, and you’ll also have access to Google Play. Adobe Flash Player has also been preloaded, so you’ll be able to take full advantage of the web on your chosen high-def display.So how well does this device perform, you ask? Though the 5500 this device scores in Antutu benchmark doesn’t put it in the same league as today’s top-performing devices, it’s still up there with the Kindle Fire and LG Optimus 2X. For $89 — just a few dollars more than the MK802 — it delivers more than double the average MK802 score.The stick PC is selling for just $89 (basic postage included), and expedited shipping will cost you another $25. Wholesale pricing is available, too, in case you want to unleash and army of ARM Cortex-A9 mini PCs upon the world.More at Liliputing and AliExpresslast_img
