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."
