Rockchip are now eligible to use the ARM Cortex-A57, Cortex-A53, Cortex-A12 architectures on their upcoming series of chipsets, the RK32xx.
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.
