Rockchips RK3188 quad-core chip aimed at mid-range retina display tablets

If you have ever used a Chinese tablet then the chances are it uses one of Rockchips processor’s. We tested the Pipo M1 last year with a quad-core Rockchips CPU and it was great! And for 2013 the Chinese chip maker has the new RK3188 ready for launch.

There is a strong Chinese presence at CES this year, and among them is CPU manufacturer Rockchips, who have been showing off their new quad-core RK3188 unit. The new CPU is based on ARM Cortex-A9 architecture built on 28nm to allow for great performance and low power consumption.

Gizchina News of the week

The quad-core RK3188 is aimed at the mid-range tablet market and is optimized for use with high-resolution 2048 x 1536 Retina displays and sports a 1080p decoder capable of buffering 60FPS!

What this means is that we are going to see a lot of high-resolution Retina tablets on sale later this year all priced around the $200 price mark!

    There are a lot of doubts about the GPU of RK3188, the company didn’t say anything when the staff showed this new chipset. It is rumoured/rumored that it could be a Mali 400 at 400 Mhz but nobody really knows. Perhaps the GPU of Allwinner A31 is better… Regards.
