    Tronsmart Prometheus Android TV box with Amlogic CPU - Liliputing (click for full article)

    "Tired of Android TV boxes that look like USB flash drives? The Tronsmart Prometheus looks more like a USB hub... or maybe a spaceship... or visor...


    Whatever it looks like, the Prometheus is designed to turn your TV into an Android-powered media center. It's available from several retailers for about $99.


    Under the hood the Tronsmart Prometheus is powered by a 1.5 GHz dual core Amlogic AML8726-M6 ARM Cortex-A9 processor with Mali-400 graphics, 1GB Of RAM, and 4GB of storage.


    That's the same chip used in the G-Box Dyno and Diamond Multimedia AMP1000 media players. In other words, it's not the fastest chip around, but it's reasonably zippy and works with most Android apps and games, including YouTube and Netflix. You should also be able to run XBMC media center for Android on the Prometheus box.


    Unlike many of the smaller Android TV sticks we've seen, the Prometheus has plenty of room for ports and features 3 USB 2.0 ports as well as HDMI and Ethernet jacks. It also has built-in support for 802.11b/g/n WiFi.


    The device runs Google Android 4.1 Jelly Bean."

    One good thing about the android TV boxes that utilize AmLogic chips - is that XBMC media center for android is supported with hardware acceleration.
