#1. Amlogic AML8726-MX (dual core A9 CPU @ 1.2 GHz + dual core Mali 400 GPU @ 400 MHz) - was supposed to run @ 1.5 GHz but clocked less because of high heat issue. Seems Amlogic has problems reaching high clock speeds with all their chips.
Some companies using this chip are: Ramos, Ainol, Onda, Gemei, etc.
Expected Performance (SunSpider + Quadrant? benchmarks):
#2. Rockchip RK3066 (dual core A9 CPU @ 1.4 GHz (o/c 1.6 GHz) + quad core Mali 400 GPU @ 250 MHz)
Companies using this chip are: Yuandao/Window, Cube, Aoson,
#3. NuFront NS2816M (dual core CPU A9 + dual(?) core Mali400 GPU)
#4. Freescale i.MX6 (quad(?) core A9 CPU + quad(?) core Vivante GPU)
PERFORMANCE TESTING BETWEEN TEGRA 2, OMAP4, 8726-MX & RK3066:
*Other* ARM chips coming out but best to avoid them because bad performance compared to dual core A9 tablets.
Quadrant score seems very low for this tablet. Total = 1012.
VIA8850 Cortex A9 w/Mali400 - Performance is said to be similar to Allwinner A10 but should cost less. Little too late for this chip now.
AllWinner A13 Cortex A8 w/Mali400 - A much cheaper version of the A10 chip at US$4.99. A10 cost $15? Performance and/or features will be worse than A10 chip!!!
MTK6575 Cortex A9 SGX531 - This is said to be a dual-core, mainly used in mobile phones, but can be used in tablet too. However, the GPU is on the weak side for 3D gaming. Only good for simple gaming but bad for any real gaming.
All of the above ARM chips in "quoted section" are on the weak side for CPU, GPU or both. All of these *other* CPUs, seem to be a disappointment!!! Only 8726-MX & RK3066 are the real winners and will become very popular in Chinese tablets!!! Tablets already being released with these two chips. More to come in next 1-2 months.
Finally have powerful, Chinese dual core tablets coming out that outperform Tegra 2 and give iPad 2 and Tegra 3 tablets a run for their money!!!
