Amazon presented the competitor of Apple TV with the voice assistant
Whatever you may say, but the Apple always had strong competitors. If in the field of smartphones as the main competitor the South Korean company Samsung acts, in the sphere of set-top boxes quite compete to the giant from Kupertino the Amazon company can. The new teleprefix of Amazon Fire TV not only repeats key possibilities of Apple TV, but even offers users something bigger.
The most important advantage of development of Amazon before Apple TV is possibility of Fire TV to reproduce video in permission 4К. New Apple TV such to offer cannot in view of shortage of capacity of the processor yet. To outride the competitor, Amazon used the powerful 64-bit chetyryokhjyaderny chip, and also separate GPU in the prefix. Also specially for 4K-video the prefix will use the new High Efficiency Video Coding codec. Thanks to it the prefix can стримить a 4K-content without constant buferizatsiya. 8 GB of memory are built in a prefix with expansion possibility by means of memory cards to 128 GB.
Amazon also built in Fire TV of the voice assistant by name of Alexa. Like Siri this voice assistant can look for for you a various television content, select films and even to carry out purchases on Amazon.com. At the cost in 100 dollars, the prefix of Fire TV can make the notable competition not only Apple TV, but also other prefix popular now in the USA – Roku.
If you do not want to get a teleprefix for reasons of economy of a place near the TV, Amazon will suggest you to buy compact стик, being connected directly through HDMI port. The tiny gadget is able practically the same, as a prefix unless because of weaker iron the 4K-content will not allow you to look. Stik will cost to you 50 dollars or 40 dollars if you decide to do without a remote control. But remember that voice teams work only when you in a hand have a panel. After all the microphone is built in it.
For gamers of Amazon will offer a set for 140 dollars which includes a new prefix of Fire TV, a remote control, a memory card on 32 gigabytes, two preloaded games and the firm game controler. I remind you that Amazon actively develops the internal game studio and not so long ago announced some of very attractive games. So all this sooner or later similar undertakings can pour out in appearance of the new serious player in the console market. The listed devices will go on sale in October of the current year.
