Amlogic S905 and Rockchip RK3229

There’s a new SoC on the market that addresses the same market segment: Rockchip RK3229.
Announced at CES 2016, Rockchip RK3229 is now making it’s appearance and the first prices are unbelievably low for a H.265-capable device (see below).
In some respects, RK3229 is better than S905 and has a better price, but don’t keep your hopes up until someone actually tests these devices.
On paper, RK3229 has some impressive video decoding capabilities for a spectacular price, but the lack of faster connectivity (USB 3.0, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac) might prove to be a troublesome.
One major drawback for RK3229 when compared to Amlogic S905 is the OS – the difference between Android 4.4 and 5.1 is not to be ignored.

So I thought that a comparison between the chipsets is in order.
Work in progress: this page will be updated with new products and specs after I get to test a RK3229 device.
