according to the post, “the fan in the device is the first of its kind in any apple tv. the new thermal solution in the apple tv 4k combines the fairly large fan with the heat sink and emi shield combination from the fourth-generation device.”


among the assorted chips that are inside the new apple tv 4k are a broadcom thunderbolt to gigabit ethernet chip, 3gb of sk hynix ram, a custom memory controller, a murata wi-fi and bluetooth module, toshiba flash memory, and a megachips displayport 1.4 to hdmi 2.0 converter.
