Amazon has just announced the Fire TV Stick 4K Max. And yes, that is quite the mouthful. This completes the lineup which now consists of the Fire TV Stick Lite, Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Stick 4K and now the Fire TV Stick 4K Max. The new Fire TV Stick 4K Max is going to cost you $54.99, only $5 more than the Fire TV Stick 4K. Which isn’t bad at all.
This means that you can get a Fire TV Stick between $29 and $54. That clearly shows that Amazon is coming after Roku, as that is typically their price points.
So what makes this Fire TV Stick “Max”?
You might be wondering what exactly makes this Fire TV Stick so “Max”. And well, there’s a few things here. It does support WiFi 6, which is going to allow for faster speeds, if you have a WiFi 6 router. That’s important for those that are looking for faster speeds for their growing house of streaming.
Additionally, there is support for HDR, HDR10+, Dolby Vision and even Dolby Atmos. Giving you a great picture and audio experience here.
On the hardware side of things, it sports a hexa-core CPU, which is 2.2GHz + 1.9GHz, along with a GPU that is 800MHz. That is a pretty big speed boost from the 1.7GHz CPU and 650MHz GPU on the Fire TV Stick 4K. It does come with the same 8GB of storage as the Fire TV Stick 4K, but it does double the storage to 2GB.
Now with the addition of the Fire TV Stick 4K Max, you can get a Fire TV Stick at almost any price. If you are a big user of Fire TV and Luna, then the Fire TV Stick 4K Max is going to be a really good option to pick up.
You’ll be able to pre-order the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max now, and it will be released on October 7, 2021.
