Geared with the latest firmware installed, let's see how this promising box performs. But first, we start with its main features and specs.
The "heart " of the new player is the ARM Cortex-A53 Rockchip 3368, a 64-bit compatible octa-core CPU that should be powerful enough to process 4K video. The player also features 2GB of DDR3 RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, Broadcom AP6335 dual-band WiFi and Gigabit ethernet connectivity. It supports IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/mimo, 802.11ac,2.4GHz/5GHz and it can achieve up to a speed of 433.3Mbps with single stream in 802.11ac draft mode.
The utilization of eMMC memory offers an array of benefits in terms of performance security and reliability. In addition, the player is embedded with a Bt 4.0 module. It can reduce 3 milliseconds delay the transfer-distance can be more than 10 meter, and supports AES-128 coding .It is compatible with 2.0,2.1 and 3.0 BT standards.
The ZIDOO X6 Pro has an HDMI output capable of streaming 4K*2K@60fps videos. You can enjoy large-scale games that require UHD frame rate@60fps, and also enjoy 18Gbps data transfers and 12-Bit real-color.

The player's PMU power management chip supports completely switch IR Control and a dormancy function, as well as power off and power on options right "from the sofa". It is the first Android TV BOX to support the auto power off and standby function.
