Android Sony 2020 TV lineup SoC
#1
Hello people,

Does anybody own any of the 2020/H Series Sony Android TVs? I would be really helpful if you could share the SoC on your model. It will help everyone in making a decision on what TV to buy.

Thank you!

2020 Sony’s SoC in virtually all 2020 models from X8000’s series upwards inc. OLED’s: (UR3)
2.5GB RAM, MediaTek MT5893, Quad Core A73 CPU clocked @1.5GHz, ARM-Mali G71 GPU

The exception is the HDMI 2.1 equipped Z8H & X9000H: (VH1)
3 GB RAM, MediaTek MT5895 Quad Core A73 CPU clocked @1.8GHz, ARM-Mali G52 GPU

The Z8H and the gaming oriented X900H have the most powerful SoC’s in - ANY - Smart TV for running a really snappy Android TV (Pie) OS. Smile

Good to know - looking to replace my 49XF9005 with a larger XH9005 in the coming weeks. (I think I'm going to stick with FALD rather than switching to OLED due to room brightness, but we can finally move to a larger screen size)

Edit to the above the 2020 Sony’s are packing a Quad Core A73 CPU package.

Thank you! It really helps. I also found something interesting on reddit:

That reddit thread reinforces the X900H status as likely to be the PS5 Partner display (4K/120 being an important factor)

AIUI the X900H may be better specified in this regard than the more expensive X950H?

Yes, hardware wise it's better, latency wise it's better, but I'm not sure about the postprocessing capabilities of MediaTek chips vs the Sony X1 Ultimate.

I switch off all the post-processing options in general so that may not be a huge issue for me personally.  First thing I do usually is disable or switch off Reality Creation, MotionFlow, Smooth Graduation, Noise Reduction, Live Colour, Contrast Enhancement etc., and I set sharpness to do nothing.  I want to see as clean and neutral a picture displayed as I can, so it is as close as possible to the picture seen in an edit suite or a control room. (I work in Broadcast TV and none of our broadcast monitors have any of that processing stuff - just decent calibration options).

I don't know all the post-processing involved in Broadcast TV, but there's one thing that's really bothering me and it's dependent on various implementations: deinterlacing of HDTV 1080i content. The MediaTek one can't be that bad versus the Sony one.
