Rockchip presented the latest mobile unit – Rockchip RK3399 which is dedicated to devices running under the control of Google Android, Linux, and Windows 10 Mobile.
Rockchip RK3399 is the central unit of the new generation, which has become naszepcą popular RK3288 (4xARM Cortex-A17), which we can meet in tablets and Chromebooks. The new chip SOC big.LITTLE uses technology developed by ARM, which means that Rockchip chose to the use of main and auxiliary cores that will be activated for less demanding tasks. Such treatment will translate into less demand for energy. Rockchip RK3399 is a 6-core SoC produced outdated 28-nanometer process in which used are two main cores based on ARM architecture Cortex-A72, and four auxiliary core ARM Cortex-A53. The clock frequency auxiliary cores will amount to up to 1.5 GHz, while the two cores offer significantly more power characterized by a clock speed of 2.0 GHz. Besides the six cores ARM Rockchip RK3399 was used as the layout of the Mali-T864. At the moment not disclosed the number of cores and clock speed. Rockchip RK3399 supports, among others, HDMI 2.0, which will offer potential buyers an even more efficient transfer of the image on the external monitor as it is able to present an image at a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels and 60Hz. HDMI 2.0 can also send up to 32 uncompressed audio channels, as well as presenting colors to 12 bits. The first tablet using Rockchip RK3399 SoC (those working under Windows 10 Mobile and Android) should be presented during the fair Mobile World Congress 2016 (end of February) or at the June Computex technology trade fair.
