Amazon Lights up its Fire TV Stick 4K with PowerVR

First released in 2016, the Fire TV stick brings catch-up streaming services to any TV with an HDMI port – just plug in and go. This is now the fifth iteration of the device, and as with the 2015 version, this latest update is based on the Mediatek MT8695 chipset, featuring a PowerVR GPU in the form of a PowerVR GE8300: a Series8XE core.
