Allwinner A33 Specifications, Quad Core Processors for low cost tablets

AllWinner A33 is the latest processor that is made specially for the low cost tablets running Android operating system. The CPU was launched officially at the Computex 2014 technology event. However since the CPU is going to be so cheap, do not expect cutting edge technology. The Allwinner A33 been manufactured using 28-nanometer process technology and consists of four cores based on ARM Cortex-A7 architecture.

Maximum resolution supported is just 1280×800 pixels which is good enough for budget tablets. Graphics are handled by the dual-core Mali-400MP2.

We have been told that that the Allwinner A33 will be handle video playback at a maximum resolution of Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels). You will also be able to record them in the same resolution at sixty frames per second. The first tablet equipped with this system-on-chip will be launched in July this year.
