Re: Roku Ultra 2019 versus 2020

The Roku Ultra 2020(Model # 4800, released October 2020) has 4GB of Channel Storage and 2GB of RAM. the only downside that I was worried about was not having a MicroSD slot but the sheer amount of channel storage has alleviated that worry

The 4800 also has a completely different CPU from the older models, and it is quite fast.

Re: Roku Ultra 2019 versus 2020

I agree I have my first Roku ultra 4670x works very very well, like the Nvidia shield pro, and apple tv 2021, and the fire tv qube is pretty good two👌👌👌

Very happy with all of these devices all very very good!! But the only one with headphone to fit remote is the ultra from Roku that's why I use it now

Re: Roku Ultra 2019 versus 2020

These are the specs of 2020 Roku ultra cpu / gpu:

RTD1319: wiki

1.4 GHz4 ARM Cortex-A55, Quad Core, 4K UHD
GPU: ARM Mali-G31 x-core


spec wise and only for games it is not as fast as google chrome and fire tv stick 4k max.

Having said this I owe 2 Roku devices. One Roku express 4k and a Roku ultra 2020 (purchased a week ago). Where Roku excels is Airplay 2 support. Love it. For Roku ultra it is additionally wired Lan support and bluetooth headphone from remote control.

I also owe a Google TV which is also good in games from playstore and stadia. Comes with better cpu specs:

Amlogic S905D3 Quad Core 4x ARM-A55 @ 1.9GHz (64bit) / GPU Mali-G31 MP2. 

Does not support  airplay but you can project movies if app supports google tv. Ex primevideo does not work. 

best for videos is Roku ultra depending on location due to additionally having a usb and network ports + remote control headphone support. Price is also a factor so is region support and availability.

only 2 questions I have are:

1. is it a single mali G31 core or a dual core?

2.  when is Roku channel will be available in Europe??
