    The difference between Amlogic S905, S905X and S912:

    s912-and-905x-specification-difference

    That means Amlogic S905X and S912 have the exact same video playback capabilities, although S912 will also support Dolby Vision HDR standard. The main differences are the eight Cortex A53 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz (instead of 4x A53 @ 1.5 GHz), and the more power ful Mali-T820MP3 GPU, as well as support for LCD panel (e.g. for tablets) thanks to an extra RGB interface. Finally S912 has three USB interfaces, instead of just two for S905X.

    Amlogic 2016 roadmap shows S905X is scheduled for Q1 2016, and S912 for Q2 2016,  but it’s likely we need to add one or two more quarters before we get any Android 6.0 devices based on the new processors.
