START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated Dec 2020)
Hint:  In Post #1 there is talk about "Bang for the Buck" DIY LibreELEC Kodi Boxes - that are highly optimised for Kodi use and will actually give you the best fuss free Kodi experience you can currently get on any hardware platform once they are setup.

That "Bang for the Buck" post directs you to this thread: (hint follow the Link in e))

AMLogic S905(x) -  LibreELEC / OSMC - Kodi Krypton - 4K Options:

This recent thread will also be of interest, especially when it talks about AMLogic S912 boxes:

4K HDR Streaming Box

The RPi is fine for 1080p mpeg2 / H264 video playback. It's now relatively old, slower hardware vs the AMLogic S9xx boxes. As soon as you strike 10bit HEVC 1080p video content forget about even trying to playback that on a RPi. Its not very future proofed these days but has been impressively pushed as far as it will go.
