Teclast X16 Tablet Comes with an Intel Atom x7-Z8700 Processor and 8GB RAM, Dual Boots Android 5.1 and Windows 10

There’s been a few Cherry Trail devices launched recently, but the Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor found in most new devices does not offer that much over the older Intel Atom Z3735F, and only an handful of devices have been released based on the more powerful Atom x7-Z8700 processor such as Microsoft Surface 3 tablet and Magicstick TV stick. I can also often read people complaining 2GB RAM is not enough, but Teclast X16 Power 11.6″ tablet addresses these two issues with an Atom x7-Z8700 quad core processor, 8GB RAM, and 64GB storage for dual booting Windows 10 and Android 5.1.

Teclast_X16_TabletTeclast X16 Power specifications:

  • SoC – Intel Atom x7-Z8700 “Cherry Trail” quad core processor @ 1.6 GHz (Bust freq: 2.4 GHz) with Intel Gen8 HD graphics with 16EU @ 600MHz (2W SDP)

The tablet PC ships with a micro USB Cable, a charger, and a user’s manual by default. Please note that the keyboard and stylus shown on the picture above are not included by default.

Teclast X16 Power can be pre-ordered on GeekBuying for $424.59 including shipping, which compares to $499 with a Surface 3 with 2GB RAM, or $327 MagicStick Wave with 8GB RAM, 64GB storage, a Windows 10 license, and shipping fees included on Indiegogo. If you feel 4GB RAM is enough, and that x5-Z8500 processor would fit you need, you could also pre-order Teclast X16 Pro for $299 an up. That Aliexpress link adds $40 for the stylus and keyboard.

A big difference is that the x5 and x7 have hardware support for h.265, making them a lot more future-proof.

AFAIK, this h265 support is limited at [email protected] fps and it’s an hybrid one (it makes use of gpu+cpu, not a dedicated hardware video decoder).
It’s better than no support at all for sure, but i wouldn’t call that future proof unfortunately.

Chinese tablets is well known have one big problem with the heating.

the Teclast X98 Pro with Z8500/4G/64G for 230 $ is a better deal.

Very good for RAM installed, bad for only 1 USB port (IMHO)

As I understand it Cherry Trail, like Braswell, uses full hardware decoding for H265 (though limited to 2160p @ 30Hz / 1080p @ 120Hz) not hybrid decoding. Hybrid decoding isn’t supported in Linux, but Braswell has full hardware H265 support in dev builds of OpenElec and other Kodi on Linux – though you need a 4.3 kernel? AIUI Cherry Trail should be the same?
