Ainol will use the Quad-Core ACT-ACT7029 - Is it any good?

The name of the article is: "AINOL'S NEW CHOICE FOR A QUAD-CORE, THE "ACT-ACT7029" - JUST A MARKETING MOVE?"

Some people are saying that this particular version of the SOC has the Mali 400 instead of the GC1000. It's just speculation at the moment and only benchmarks will tell.
Plus I am a little worried. My friend has the Elf II and I've used it a couple of times. After playing a few games (for a couple of minutes)it starts to get a little hot. Seeing that the ACT7029 has a Quad-Core Processor, I'm worried about the heating issues. Dunno, I may be wrong.

In reading, I find the that ACT-ACT7029 has been associated with the new Allwinner A31, and then I read Aniol is aligning themselves with the A31.
Are Allwinner and ACT-ACT7029 the same? Anyone know how this is playing out, has played out?

When Ainol first announced their quad-core tablets, it specified from the beginning that they'd use the ACT-ATM7029. Later, seemingly out of nowhere, the Ainol Firewire was announced, which will be based on the Allwinner A31 instead.
The ATM7029 looks a bit disappointing. Not only does it feature a weak Vivante GC1000 (plus) GPU, its quad-core CPU seems to be based on ARM Cortex A5 tech rather than Cortex A9 as advertised (see here).
The Allwinner A31 is a quad-core ARM Cortex A7.
How this'll play out? I don't know yet.
