TX3 S905x3 coreelec with netflix addon can not play 1080p smooth

I have a android box TX3 S905x3 2/16GB. I installed Coreelec and Netflix addon. But when I watch Netflix, It is not smooth, dropped frames, CPU ~100% although I modding a big heat sink and fan, I also overclock GPU by ssh command and used fast uSD samsung calss 10 u1. While another s905x3 Beelink GT1 mini 2 plays well, perfectly,

Not enough power to play 1080p NF with software decoding. Set NF resolution to 720p.
Just the 922X boxes can NF inputstream 1080p playing proper.
Other boxes maybe can, but there is too high cpu usage/temp.

NF low bitrate streams can be played with 1080p on almost all 905xx devices, but high bitrate streams can be played at 1080p only on 922x devices.
Check the actual bitrate when you compare 2 devices. I can get many NF streams in 1080p on my S905x and S912 boxes, but all with low bitrate.

The stream MUST to set auto. Therefore bitrate not changeable.Manual is only for development scope, and cause problems with all the streams

So Netflix 1080p only for S922X and S90x only 720p

Yes.
All other just trick, but not recommended, also from the NF addon devs do not recommend the manual setting for bitrates…
