Start64!Intel has had a very busy day in China recently, making numerous announcements during a conference there. Those announcements range from new chips to a media box, but where we come in is the Android KitKat 4.4 64 bit kernel. So let’s go ahead and take a look at everything they had to announce while in China on Wednesday.

The media box is from QVOD Technology, and is powered by Intel’s BayTrail processors. The media box will be coming out later this year, but it won’t be the only one that Intel has had a hand in developing. Kirk Skaugen, senior vice president at Intel also noted that they are working with Xiaomi to produce another media set-top box. Though the QVOD has a currently available Intel chip inside, that doesn’t mean that Intel isn’t working on new chips.
