8093Chinese brand Flycast is set to launch a new mini PC onto the market with reports of a launch as early as May 3.

The compact TV stick called the MK809 III will feature RockChip’s new low-power quad-core RK3188 CPU and a built-in HDMI plug.

It’ll be based around the latest version of Google’s jelly Bean operating system (Android 4.2) with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of on-board flash, supplemented by a microSD card slot for up to 32GB of external storage.

Wireless connectivity will include Wi-Fi plus BLuetooth 4.0.

Initial reports are the price will be €68 (around $90 Australian/US) and sold through w2comp.

The RK3188 is a quad-core Cortex A9 CPU built on 28-nanometre technology with a top clock speed of 1.8GHz (although not stated, it’s unlikely the MK809 III will attain that speed due to power/heat production issues).

The GPU is based on ARM’s Mali400 MP4 quad-core design, which should give it decent gaming performance.

Multimedia performance for the RK3188 is pretty decent with 1080p/60Hz AVC/H.264 decoding plus support for 1080p/30Hz encoding in H.264 and VP8.
