Android PC TV Box

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Can you build a pc that install Android operation and make it as a TV box?

 

- Insert 'but why?' meme - because i want a little bit more performance for playing android game on 4k tv "

 

If you can install it , how the driver work? do you even need a driver? for network and sound drive on the mobo?

 

Do the android operation utilize the desktop cpu well enough? like cpu threads

 

how about the driver for the IGPU do we need it? and i don't think we need a separate gpu to run 4k android game if the igpu are good enough.

 

Thanks for reading , Giving info sauce to help my research

Well, you can build a media pc.  There are various Linux distros designed just for this that can emulate android phone/tablet OSes.  They did it with the RPi.  I don't remember the distro, though.

why not just run bluestacks or any other android emulator, or just buy an android tv box for about $50-$80, or like the other poster said remix OS

as far as the gpu i doubt you need much some of these boxes can dual boot windows and they are running low end specs
