Amazon introduces the Fire TV Stick 4K Max, which features a faster CPU and Wi-Fi 6 technology.
Amazon has released an upgraded version of its popular Fire TV Stick 4K streaming media player. It is known as the Fire TV Stick 4K Max, and it is a new model that has a faster CPU as well as better networking.
The MediaTek MT8696 CPU in the Fire TV Stick 4K Max is significantly quicker than the previous generation. Instead of the quad-core 1.7GHz CPU and 650MHz GPU of the previous model, the new model boasts a quad-core 1.8GHz CPU and 750MHz GPU, respectively. Additionally, it features 2GB of RAM, as opposed to 1.5GB on the prior model. Despite the fact that the modifications are minor, they should make the UI and playback more responsive.
The Fire TV Stick 4K Max also has 802.11ax networking, often known as Wi-Fi 6, which allows it to connect to the internet.
The new model also has an upgraded Alexa Voice Remote, which is the same one that comes with the regular Fire TV Stick device. Based on your location, this remote has additional shortcut buttons for popular applications like as Netflix, Disney+, and Hulu, as well as other capabilities.
Finally, the Fire TV Stick 4K Max is compatible with the Fire TV Cube’s live view picture-in-picture functionality, which is also supported by the Fire TV Stick 4K Max.
Its other capabilities are nearly comparable to those found on a normal Fire TV Stick 4K, which means it is a fairly powerful media player with compatibility for all major media streaming applications and advanced features such as Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos in a small, candy bar-sized container.
The Fire TV Stick 4K Max is priced at $54.99, which is $5 more expensive than the basic 4K version of the device.
