After Exynos, MediaTek and Rockchip, Allwinner also has an octa core CPU available for Android slates. They debuted it on the Onda V989 tablet, detailed below. The new chipset is the Allwinner A80-T octa core processor and the tablet it’s offered on will be in stores soon, priced at about $177.


Onda V989 packs a 9.7 inch display with a Retina-like resolution (2048 x 1536 pixels), as well as 2 GB of RAM, plus an 8 megapixel rear camera. There’s a 2 megapixel shooter at the front and the design is your typical iPad clone. The Allwinner A80-T CPU pairs 4 ARM Cortex A15 cores with 4 lower power ARM Cortex A7 cores and PowerVR G6230 graphics.

The chipset offers support for 4K video playback and capture, as well as H.265/VPN video processing and USB 3.0. The tablet supports Miracast wireless display and comes with WiFi and Bluetooth, while the OS is Android 4.4 KitKat. I would like someone to make a brute, cold and precise analysis of an octa core CPU of this kind versus a 64 bit new CPU, maybe an Intel one. I can’t understand why companies are going after more cores instead of going 64 bit already…
