Today sees the launch of Amazon’s new Fire TV Stick. Called the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max, it’s billed as the most powerful streaming stick yet.

Not only does it have more power, but it also has greater memory and a quicker Wi-Fi-6 connection. It’s apparently 40 per cent faster than the standard Fire TV Stick 4K, thanks to its new quad-core 1.8GHz processor and 2GB of RAM.

There’s also a new faster 750MHz GPU and ALLM for gamers. Furthermore, it uses 15 per cent less power in low power mode than the Fire TV Stick 4K.

It’s available from today on for £54.99.

Here is a quick overview of Fire TV 4K Max’s key features:

  • Most powerful streaming stick: 40% more powerful than Fire TV Stick 4K, with faster app starts and more fluid navigation.
