Rockchip has launched four more processors at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair 2017, with three SoCs specifically targeting tablets namely RK3126C, RK3326 and RK3366, and one SoC, RK3368H modified from RK3368, designed to provide a lower cost alternative to RK3288 and RK3399 for 2-in-1 hybrid laptops and tablets.
- RK3126C quad core processor supporting 1080p video decoding and HD (720p?) displays for entry-level tablets
- RK3326 quad core ARM Cortex A35 processor with a quad core Mali GPU, DDR3/LPDDR memory interface, 1080p60 H.264, MPEG-4/-2 video decoding, and 1080p30 H.264 video encoding
- RK3366 quad core ARM Cortex A53 processor with a quad core Mali GPU, DDR3/LPDDR memory interface, USB 3.0 interface, and 4K H.265 video decoding
All three processors will be running Android 7.1. I could not find any tablets based on the processor yet, so we may have to wait a few more month.
We have more details about RK3368H processor since it’s an update of RK3368 processor, and a tablet was showcased at the event.
Rockchip RK3368H key specifications:
- CPU – Octa-core ARM Cortex A53 processor @ 1.5 Ghz
- GPU – Imagination PowerVR SDX6110 GPU @ 600 MHz
- Memory I/F – 32-bit DDR/LPDDR
- Display I/F – Full HD Display supported
- Video – 4K H.265 and H.264 video decoding
- Ethernet and HDMI port “reduced” (likely meaning removed) for lower costs
- 28nm process
The processor can run Android 7.1 operating systems, including desktop optimized version such as Remix OS, Phoenix OS, or Light Biz OS. The company claims the tablet shown above gets around 48,000 points in Antutu benchmark. Netbook Italia also posted a video of the tablet (in Italian) showing it’s made by Chiptrip, but they have not updated their MID page with the new tablet just yet.
