H96 Max V58 64bit Android 12 Gaming TV Box Review

H96 Max V58 TV Box Review

When you think about a powerful TV Box the first box comes to mind is the Nvidia shield, well I ask you to look again at the new H96 Max V58 TV Box.  Running on the latest Rockchip RK3588S Octa-Core CPU clocked at 2.2 GHz with 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM, the court core Mali G6 10 GPU, Wi-Fi 6 technology, and a 64GB of internal storage. 

This latest model is a beast when used for high-performance 64bit Android gaming, PS2 emulation gaming, surround sound audio, and 4K video playback. In reviewing this model I saw and asserted effort on the behalf of the manufacturers to include premium firmware features seen in the likes of boxes manufactured by Ugoos.

They still have some tweaks to iron out some of the bugs of the firmware, but they basically covered the most critical requirements needed by TV Box enthusiast. The H96 Max V58 is the most powerful full-fledged TV Box are reviewed for 2023. It does two things really well, stream movies and TV shows from APKs and it’s a beast when it comes to 64bit Android gaming and PS2 emulation gaming.

It has the highest benchmarks for a TV Box with its 64bit Octa-Core CPU clocked at 2.2 GHz, and its Mali G610 quad-core GPU with Vulkan support. It has 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM which is double that of your standard model. For those concerned about the longevity, during 3D gaming it does not overheat so you are safe with this model. It’s not the best overall when it comes to firmware features, but they do provide firmware updates so hope they improve on their cons.
