Rumor: The upcoming 4K Apple TV will be almost as powerful as the iPad Pro 10.5

iOS developer Steven Troughton-Smith has been analyzing the leaked iOS 11 GM firmware and has uncovered the specs of the upcoming 4K Apple TV.

According to Smith, the 4K Apple TV will be powered by an A10X Fusion chipset and 3GB RAM. This makes the 4K Apple TV almost as powerful as the iPad Pro 10.5 which has the same chipset and 4GB RAM.

The current Apple TV runs on an A8 processor with 2GB RAM. The huge leap in processing power suggests that Apple might have bigger plans beyond 4K movies and TV shows for the Apple TV. 

Bloomberg reported last month that the upgraded Apple TV can stream 4K video and highlight live TV content. It can also play content optimized for TVs that can play High Dynamic Range (HDR) videos.
