Development Board with Intel Technology Developed by Rockchip

Just a quick post to show an interesting, yet unavailable development board. A few weeks ago, Intel and Rockchip announced a collaboration to design Intel Atom Sofia x86 SoC for mobile devices. Apparently, they did not waste any time, and have already done some nice work together, as Chen Feng, VP at Rockchip, posted the picture of the development board on his weibo account with a short description that Google’s translate as:

You can now showed up, Intel inside, the world’s most highly integrated 6321 smartphones and tablet communications solutions, dual-core WCDMA SOC, integrated WIFI BT GPS PMU, all two chips

Intel_Atom_Sofia_Rockchip_Development_BoardIt’s not entirely clear if it’s directly related to the announced Intel Atom “Sofia” using 3G (WCDMA) however. The 6321 is a dual core processor, but Rockchip and Intel only announced working on quad core processors, so this may be a separate product for example an ARM SoC with an Intel XMM modem, or an intermediate steps before working on the Intel Sofia SoCs which are scheduled for H1 2015. Maybe those of who have a better understanding of Chinese could shed some light based on articles published on pbhz or mydrivers.

    According to online sources “SoFIA 3G is dual-core Silvermont” so it’s probably this that we’re seeing here.

    On the other hand “SoFIA LTE is a quad-core” so I’m pretty sure this settles it.

    It’s dual cortex-a5 with intel base band for the ultra low cost smart phone.
