Re: Categorisation of Roku LowEnd and HighEnd devices

Komag, your categories don't seem fit right, for example 2400^, 34xx, 35xx i believe have same characteristics like 30xx/31xx and should be "promoted". Better would be to use roDeviceInfo.GetGraphicsPlatform() as criterion for the GPU and a DIY benchmark on the CPU.

(^) but not 2450, the one-and-only exception from the "models with same first two digits are alike" rule

Re: Categorisation of Roku LowEnd and HighEnd devices

I'm just going on performance in my game alone - those first sticks definitely are not as strong as the old Roku 2 lineup (probably due to the GPU differences, as you hint at). So yeah it will vary depending on what type of channel is being developed.

Re: Categorisation of Roku LowEnd and HighEnd devices

Thanks a lot @Komang and @RokuNB.

If I have to keep the devices in two pools (low-end and high-end), according to model number, 4200X may be a cut between low-end and high-end, as I observed. Although there will be some compromises as some high-end models will go into low-end bucket, and some mid-end models will be moved on high-end buckets. Please guide if this is fine or will it be better to create more than two buckets as Komang suggested.
