MK808C TV stick debuts with dual-core CPU and composite AV output

mk808cLooks like we’re about to see yet another version of the MK808 mini PC hit the market – but this one comes with something a little more unusual.

The new MK808C is powered by Allwinner’s low-cost A20 dual-core Cortex A7 SoC CPU. But while it comes in the oft-used MK808 chassis, this one includes a composite video/analog audio output via standard 3.5mm TRRS (tip-ring-ring-sleeve) connector (you can see it just below the miniUSB OTG port on the right).

It’s already available on Aliexpress now for just $US48 including shipping. However, we’re uncertain as to whether it officially supports Bluetooth or not (yes, it’s mentioned in the Aliexpress ad but we’ve not seen it written anywhere else so if you must have Bluetooth, check before you buy).

It comes with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and has all the usual MK808-style features – USB OTG and USB HOST ports, MicroSD card slot for up to 32GB of extra storage per card. As points out, the nice extra is that it comes with the AV composite cable to connect it straight into a composite-video input device or TV.

The Allwinner A20 CPU won’t compete with the likes of Rockchip’s quad-core RK3188 SoC for sheer speed, but the MK808C is the cheapest price we’ve seen for a dual-core mini PC with composite video out and that alone makes it well worth a look in our book.
