The four year old Pi1 is still supported, and receives regular firmware/kernel updates and still runs the latest kodi.
I don't think there are any other 4 year old ARM devices that can still run the latest kodi.
Yes partially agree, but you are going to have to do better than that Wink
AML8726-MX SoC released in 2012 - contained in the WeTek Play - receives regular Firmware / Kernel updates from WeTek and runs OpenELEC or LibreELEC Jarvis.

My question is - what is the future for the GPU/VPU in the RPi series of devices, I would anticipate another SoC update soon at least increasing the GHz Clock speed but what about the GPU/VPU - that is looking positively ancient for a HD Audio / HEVC / 2160p era ?
