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.
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!
