    Allwinner introduces dual and quad-core tablets - Liliputing (click for full article)

    "Chinese chip maker Allwinner has introduced two new processors for tablets, TV sticks, and other low power devices. They're dual and quad-core chips called the Allwinner A20 and Allwinner A31, respectively.


    The Allwinner A10 single-core chip has been a relatively popular chip with Chinese device makers due to its low price and decent performance.


    That's the processor that powers the original MK802 Android 4.0 Mini PC and a number of other mini PCs. It's proven popular with tinkerers, because Android isn't the only supported operating system. Users have been installing Ubuntu and other Linux-based software on Allwinner A10 devices for months, and the PengPod line of tablets are expected to ship soon with a desktop Linux operating system preloaded.


    While the Allwinner A10 is a single core ARM Cortex-A8 processor with Mali 400 graphics, Allwinner's new chips feature faster ARM Cortex-A7 cores and more powerful graphics."

    Hi, CatfishRivers

    I just got news on MeLE's facebook page that their quad core model has a new one named M8. Also their new version for quad core (A31) has support for hardware decode for Blu-ray in XBMC.
