START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated January 2020)
(2016-12-29, 14:35)DummyPLUG Wrote: FI am looking for a small box (size about a Android TV box) which able to handle x264 10bit and hevc, is there any suggestion? I found most soc not able to hardware decode x264 10bit, and I don't know those Intel base Chromebox fast enough for software decide.
I heard that some rockchip able to hardware decode x264 10bit but some say it not smooth at all, did anyone have experience on those soc?

h.264 10-bit (aka Hi-10P) will never be hardware accelerated, so you need something with enough CPU power to decode it. I recently picked up a Core i7 Chromebox which can handle all h.264/HEVC 10-bit just fine at 1080p (and I have an extra one available since a buyer backed out)
