Rikomagic IV MK802 Mini PC Limitations

There’s some limitations though, especially when it comes to supporting external peripherals in games and hardware decoding of HD video. But it should also be noted that in both cases, Rikomagic has nothing to with it. Blame the immature of firmware and external devices’ support.

However, Rickmagic can be blamed for few things. For instance, the IV MK802 Mini PC has pretty poor Wi-Fi reception which is probably due to interference with other internal components. Also, there is no heatsink on the SoC.
