Amazon’s Brand-New Fire TV Cube with Double The Speed is Now Shipping
Last month, Amazon announced today a major update to their Fire TV Cube device, which combines a Fire TV and Echo device all-in-one. The updated Fire TV Cube now sports a hexa-core processor — which according to Amazon is more than twice as fast as the original Fire TV Cube. The device can stream 4K UHD at 60 FPS, with support for HDR, HRD10+, Dolby Vision, as well as Dolby Atmos audio.
Starting today, the all-new Fire TV Cube is available for $119.99. Those who pre-ordered the device will begin receiving it today, and those who order today can get it as soon as tomorrow with Prime One-Day Shipping.
All-New Amazon Fire TV Cube
Just like the original, the device let’s you control your entire TV setup with your voice. This means that you can control your TV, your soundbar, and even your cable or satellite box by voice. The device has a combination of HDMI-CEC support, but also an IR extender that can control those without.
The new Fire TV Cube has 8 microphones, which improves it’s ability to hear in a loud room, but also above the sound blaring from your television. In addition to the faster processor, the devices add on-device processing which will allow the Cube to process commands 4x the speed of the original.
