S96 TV Box Review
The Antutu benchmark tests single core performance over multi-core as it is a better indication of the performance of one device over others in most situations. Vega S96 takes 5th place in this test, two places behind another S912 based box (Q912) – which is a little disappointing for a Tronsmart box.

GPU Mark tests 3d gaming performance and also provides a normalized score according to the used screen resolution (for a more accurate result). The test is quite short and should be taken as a supporting result to that of the more serious 3D Mark benchmark. Vega S96 shows strength here and takes 3rd and 4th place in different aspects of this graphic intensive test, staying behind Rockchip based competitors which still show their advantage when it comes to 3d graphics performance.
A1 SD Benchmark tests RAM and flashes memory speeds. As can be seen in the provided graphs, RAM is much faster (by a factor of about 40) than flash memory – that is why it’s in a smaller amount and is also volatile (does not keep its contents after a reboot). Vega S96 does not do so well on the SD card read/write portions of the test, and get only the 11th place. However, not all is lost and its RAM copy speeds place it in the 3rd place which is quite impressive.
Tronsmart S96 comes with S912 CPU which is a high-performance octa-core 64bit chipset which is known for a maximum clock speed of up to 1.5Ghz. Apps will never run so smoothly in other chipset devices. People can easily enjoy many hot games and APKs with its 2GB DDR3 RAM and 16GB Flash ROM.
