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.

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

Those test were done with a Ramos W70 PRO 7″ Tablet which should cost 199 USD once it is available.
