Roku 3 Teardown: A Look Inside The New Box
Now that the new Roku 3 is out, I’ve cracked one open to take a look at the inside. You can clearly see HDMI, ethernet, power, USB ports and IR receiver. I’m no silicon expert but the chips I see are for the power supply, AV/DAC, ethernet/USB, Broadcom A9 processor and what looks to be two banks of NAND flash memory. Maybe someone who knows more than me when it comes to chips can say how much memory the Roku 3 has. I’ve also included a photo of the board from inside the remote control as well, but a word to the wise. Opening the Roku is easy, but you’ll most likely damage the remote when you take it apart.
