It should be more than capable enough on paper, but it only runs one cluster at a time (A53 or A57) so I can not vouch for it. Also, you should take note of the fact that it being an unpopular device, its custom ROM scene is a little desolate, and it is incompatible with many applications due to its SoC.
Well, this may be a tall order, but I guess it doesn't hurt to ask. Is there any tablet on the market that can handle pretty much whatever I throw at it in regard to 10-bit video and:
- Is currently manufactured (available new from regular vendors)
- Has an FHD or better resolution screen in 16:9 or 16:10 aspect ratio
- Has a microSD card slot
- Doesn't break the bank ($300ish or less)?
I've been searching for something that fits these specifications for days, and it seems incredibly difficult to find now that Nvidia has pulled the Shield K1 Tablet from the market.
So I have a snapdragon 650(Redmi note 3) and Snapdragon 835(Oneplus 5). I have tested some sample HEVC 10bit and H264 10bit videos.
→→→ Snapdragon 650 : Hexa-core (4x1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 & 2x1.8 GHz Cortex-A72)
Can play H264 10bit upto 720p using s/w decoding flawlessly.
Can also play 1080p 10bit albeit with lower bitrates. lags with high bitrate 1080p 10bit videos.
Supports upto 1080p 60fps hevc HW decoding. 1080p 10bit and 4k hevc 10bit not supported.
Cpu cores are almost fully utilized when playing 1080p h264 10bit. lags heavily when playing hevc 1080p 10bit on s/w decoding
→→→ Snapdragon 835 Octa-core (4x2.45 GHz Kryo & 4x1.9 GHz Kryo) : Best chip currently on market along with Kirin 960 and Exynos 8895
Plays 720p 10bit using s/w decoding flawlessly, Kinda obvious.
Plays 1080p 10bit perfectly even the high bitrate ones.
But lags on some videos with 1080p 10bit high bitrate videos using ssa/ass karaoke subtitles(mxplayer probem?)
H/W decoding support upto 4k 60fps hevc 10bit.
Cpu usage doesn't cross 50% when playing 1080p 10bit videos. Also plays hevc 1080p 10bit videos with s/w decoding without any noticable lag
→→→ Give me Any videos to test. I will post the results here.
Yes sir I am aware of factors like codecs , bitrates and frame rates.
Yes sir but CPU wasn't throttling(temp below 39 degree) so in my case cpu usage was still below 50%.
No it doesn't play with h/w decoder as you know 1080p h264 10bit support is rare.
No it doesn't lag when subtitles are disabled. It only lags when playing high bitrate 1080p h264 10bit video via s/w decoding with karaoke ssa/ass subtitles(cpu not event maxed fluctuating b/w 40 %to 60%).
Note: The Video can be played without any lag when subtitles are disabled.
And ssa/ass karaoke subtitles are bit different( laggy animation and non existent subtitle animation) on mxplayer but smooth on pc or vlc android.
