Hardware

So like I said this box looks promising. The Mecool M8S Pro runs on the Amlogic S912 64bit CPU, running up 1.5GHz and not 2.0GHz as advertised. This is not unique the the Mecool M8S Pro, ALL Amlogic S912 has this issue, they limited the CPU clock so as to prevent the box from overheating.

Mecool M8S Pro (5)The GPU used in this is no surprise, it uses the ARM Mali T820 tri core GPU, running up to 750MHz. It comes with 3GB of DDR4 RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. And the maximum external hard drive capacity is 32GB.  It has 802.11 AC Dual Band 2.4GHz + 5.8GHz WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.1.
