As you know UGOOS AM6 Plus is only similar to the Beelink GT-King which is equipped with a Amlogic S922X SoC. But AM6 Plus has much more stronger CPU Amlogic S922X-J with Dolby Vision and Dolby Audio support. Which TV Box with S922X SoC in our opinion is the most powerful and worth recommending? You will learn about this from our review.
UGOOS AM6 Plus is the new “King of Benchmarks”, but more on this in our review.
We want to say thanks to from UGOOS company (Ugoos Industrial Co., Ltd.) for sending us a UGOOS AM6 Plus to review.
AM6 Plus is a square box made of black metal, which is not unlike other boxes from other manufacturers. First, it is made of metal. Darkened aluminum shell, to be precise, with lots of ventilation holes and slots. The power supply LED is located on the top of the box in the first “o” of the Ugoos manufacturer logo. The box also comes with a dual antenna, which may be responsible for the very good measured WiFi performance. The rest is standard – multiple ports and slots arranged around the periphery of the box, with one port I miss – a USB-C port. There are USB 2.0 ports and a single USB 3.0 port, but no USB-C port.
The Antutu benchmark tests single-core performance against multi-core, as in most situations it is a better indication of the performance of one device over another. The Android TV box jumps into the queue and takes first place! over any other device I’ve tested so far.
Below is a screenshot of the latest Antutu benchmark.
GPU Mark Benchmark
GPU Mark tests 3D gaming performance and also delivers a normalized score based on the screen resolution used (for a more accurate result). The test is fairly short and should be seen as a supportive result for the more serious 3DMark benchmark. Ugoos AM6 Plus achieved 3rd place in average frames per second and only 5th place in the average and screen-normalized score. However, the seemingly low placement can be deceptive, as it is not far from the competition. The one who tops the table is a tablet with a much more powerful GPU.
PC Mark Benchmark
It wins first place in this extensive series of productivity tests designed to show a more balanced picture of an Android device’s ability to perform various tasks such as spreadsheets, photo editing, complex website browsing and more.
It has a built-in root function that works like magic. All you have to do is go to the settings, find them in the Uggos Settings section, and turn them on or off as needed. It remains intact after the restart until you disable it. The power and decision is entirely up to you!
Video Playback testing
The box works well in everyday situations (most videos are played at 1080p or standard 4k). However, it seems that network optimization requires some work since, despite the good speed test results, heavy video files have been buffered. Nevertheless, the playback results are generally quite good.
AM6 Plus showed excellent image quality and was also surprised by the partial support for 8K videos. This chipset does not officially support 8k, but with the new 8k crop that supports AV receivers (Denon has already declared this for the time being) that will be released later this year, I have tested some 8k video files. As can be seen in the table above, all of them were actually played with mixed results. For me, this means that this box can play 8k, although it would be limited to up to 30 frames per second. With some software optimizations, it can even be a smooth experience.
The box has also been tested with HDR content as it is becoming increasingly common in today’s television and projector sets. HDR contains more information and is definitely heavier than standard 4k content. As such, I noticed a bit of buffering – when played over WiFi. Another problem that some updates may fix.
I tested network performance with the popular Speedtest.net application from the Play Store. I have tested both WiFi (the fastest supported WiFi – in this case 5 GHz 802.11ac) and a cable connection (in my case AV1200 Ethernet via power line). My home connection is a symmetrical 500 MB fiber connection, so the tests are not restricted (the Ethernet connection via the power line, however). It has above-average performance with high-level results for a 5 GHz WiFi network and much lower results with my power line Adapter Cable Connection:
UGOOS AM6 Plus Plus ran smoothly in the game tests as expected. The graphics chip can process most games without any problems. However, control can be an issue unless you’re looking for a gamepad or other more play-friendly remote.
Asphalt 8 Airborne – a 3D graphics intensive racing game. The box charges and runs smoothly. I was able to control with the included standard IR remote control, but couldn’t use Nitro.
The UGOOS AM6 Plus is a great Android box that is suitable for both gaming and main users.
The UGOOS AM6 Plus offer their usual combination of excellent hardware and software, with their heavily customized Android firmware adding tons of useful features. In conjunction with the powerful Hexacore Amlogic S922X-J under the hood, this results in an Android TV box with excellent performance. Also UGOOS AM6 Plus has much more stronger CPU Amlogic S922X-J with Dolby Vision and Dolby Audio support.
