Droid Stick A2 crams a dualcore chip and Android into an HDMIbased

first_imgKimdecent is getting ready to offer up another new addition to its Android-powered HDMI PC offerings, and this one’s packing a nice performance upgrade. Unlike the MK802 which featured a single-core AllWinner A10 processor, the Droid Stick A2 is built around a dual-core AMLogic AML8726-MX chip.The clock speed remains the same at 1.5GHz, but it’s built around the ARM Cortex-A9 architecture as opposed to A8 like the AllWinner. According to ARM, that should give the Droid Stick A2 enough horsepower to burn through more than twice as many operations per second. The A2 also doubles up on RAM (1GB), and WiFi speed has gotten a boost thanks to 802.11n support. Its Android OS has been updated, too, and now sits at version 4.1.1.The Droid Stick A2 isn’t available yet, but it should be ready for sale by the first week of November. Pricing hasn’t surfaced yet, but with similar guts available in Shanzai tablets for about $110, it’s a safe bet that the Droid Stick A2 should be competitive with similar devices like the $89 “MK802 killer” that popped up back in August.2012 has already seen the Raspberry Pi, the VIA APC, and scores of Android HDMI stick PCs. It’s been a big year for small-footprint, low-cost computing. And there’s no sign that developments are slowing down, especially when it comes to those handy little Android sticks. Clearly it’s a simple task for manufacturers to swap new processors in without causing serious production delays, so it probably won’t be long before these things are sporting quad-core chips like the ODROID-X.More at CNX Software and Kimdecentlast_img read more
