New Fire TV Cube, changes inside and out

On an aesthetic level, the 2nd generation Fire TV Cube had a shiny plastic surface that did not particularly stand out. In the 3rd generation, although it is not a substantial change, we find a device with almost the same dimensions, but with a fabric finish that gives it a more careful appearance.

But the changes do not lie only in the visible. The interior of the Fire TV Cube has also been revamped. We have gone from a Hexa-Core processor (4 x 2.2 GHz, 2 x 1.9 GHz) to a Octa-Core processor (4 x 2.2 GHz, 4 x 2.0 GHz) which promises to offer 20% more performance than the previous generation.

Amazon notes that this is the first Fire TV that includes an HDMI input port. And what is this for? To connect and thus control other devices such as cable or satellite TV decoders and Blue-ray players. At the port level, there is also one for HDMI output and one for USB-A to, for example, connect a webcam and make video calls with Alexa.
