So Apple has installed its 4K box for processing the 4K images A10X fusion chip and equipped the streaming client with 3 gigabytes of memory and a new graphics chip. Apple renounces the new 4K version still on a separate audio output. The AC power, HDMI out, and Gigabit Ethernet ports are retained on the Apple TV 4K. The latter also supports the dual-band standard simultaneously over 2.4 and 5 gigahertz, provided that your wireless router transmits its signals via the 802.11ac standard.
