Rockchip Introduces RK3368 Octa Core Cortex A53 SoC for Tablets and 4K TV Box

Rockchip is also at CES 2015, and they’ve announced and are showcasing a new octa-core processor called RK3368 with eight 64-bit ARM Cortex A53 cores that will go into tablets and 4K UHD media players in the coming year. Most news outlet and blogs at CES only cover big brand, so all I got are a few tweets from Rockchip twitter account.

Rockchip_RK3368The eight cores will be clocked up to 1.5 GHz, and the SoC includes an unnamed GPU with support for OpenGL ES 3.1, OpneCL 1.2 and DirectX 9.3. 4Kx2K H.265 and H.264 video decoding will be handled by the chip too, as will out HDMI 2.0 for up to 2160p @ 60 Hz video output.

RK3368_Reference_Platform

RK3368 tablets and media players will run Android 5.0 Lollipop. RK3368 is probably the official name for MayBach processor.

I’m now fully relying on Charbax to get more details about Rockchip new processor… 🙂

[Update: Liliputing shot a video with RK3368 Reference Tablet.

My prediction on the unknown gpu is PowerVR as in A80 from Allwinner.

Look promising but takes time: http://lists.infradead.org/mailman/listinfo/linux-rockchip I prefer mainline work than a barely functioning old kernel with blobs.

I don’t think it will be PowerVR and I sure hope not. It will likely be a Mali given the fact that PowerVR supports DirectX 11 ( the latest ones )

direct 9.3 ? hope like hell they didn’t go with vivante (though vivante claims direct11 for all its decelerators)
and Rockchip has used them before.
Vivante do have good opensource drivers but hardware is slow compared to mali and powervr – though they usually claim higher figures

Lets hope radxa can get hold of some 3368’s.

Hopefully 2015 will be the year of the low cost 64 bit arm chips and boards

“MayBach”? Maybach was the very expensive car brand by Daimler, that was discontinued in 2013.

Such a name isn’t too great, I would say.

My guess is the GPU is a PowerVR G6100 or perhaps a G6110 as it’s only DirectX 9_3 spec. It’s a one cluster variant for low cost SoC’s. This GPU is based on Rogue 6XE architecture so should still be quite potent, depending on clock speed etc.
