Amlogic announced the availability of the AML8726-MX, a SoC based on a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor clocked at 1.5 GHz with a Mali-400 MP GPU. It is the successor of the similarly named AML8726-M with a single core Cortex A9 @ 1 GHz.

The company explains this SoC is particularly suitable for Over The Top (OTT) delivery, 3D Gaming and other Internet applications and targets the tablet, set-top-box and smart-TV markets.

AMLogic AML8726-MX include 10/100/1000 Ethernet, 2x USB interfaces, 3-in-1 Card Reader support, Analog and digital video outputs, LVDS and T-CON (Timing Controller) with backlight control, digital video and camera interfaces. Wi-Fi is supported via external chipsets.

Here are the highlights of the AML8726-MX family provided by AMLogic:

  • A dual-core Cortex-A9 processor achieving over 7500 DMIPS of performance
  • Direct to panel connection with advanced scaling, de-interlacing and picture quality enhancement
  • Industry leading power management technology to extend battery life in mobile applications
  • The ability to run Android 4.0 (ICS), Linux 3.X, OpenGL ES 2.0

Android-sale has published benchmark results (Sunspider + other?) which show AML8726-MX being noticeably faster than TI OMAP4460 and NVidia Tegra 2 (frequencies used are not mentioned however), and slightly faster than as Apple A5X (IPAD 3 processor). Those test were done with a Ramos W70 PRO 7″ Tablet which should cost 199 USD once it is available.

[…] Aparte de las marcas más punteras de sobra conocidas, existen otras empresas dedicadas a la fabricación de procesadores que, aunque con prestaciones menores en comparación, también son capaces de ofrecer un gran rendimiento y lo que es muy importante, precios mucho mejores. Estos chips suelen estar destinados a tablets de gama baja muchas de ellas genéricas que luego son remarcadas por algunos distribuidores. Ya hablamos hace poco del caso de Rockchip y sus nuevos lanzamientos y hoy lo hacemos de Amlogic. Lo nuevo de esta empresa se denomina AML-8726-MX y es un SoC o Todo-En-Uno que integra un Cortex A9 de doble núcleo acompañado por la incombustible gráfica Mali 400. Estos desarrollos tienen una potencia bastante decente y permite que las tablets baratas adquieran prestaciones sobradas para funciones corrientes como la navegación Web o la reproducción de vídeo sin mayores problemas. En concreto este nuevo modelo es perfectamente comparable a los últimos Rockchip y estas marcas de segunda línea están consiguiendo que las diferencias entre gamas no sean tan enormes al tiempo que hacen bajar aún más los precios.
