The Allwinner A33 is sampling now, and the first commercially available devices using A33 can be expected around July. The Allwinner A33 is an extremely power efficient processor based on a Quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 with Mali400MP2 GPU. It is pin compatible with the previously released A23 dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor, greatly speeding up the product time to market. Allwinner claims it has an even lower power consumption level than the dual-core Allwinner A23, while speeding up performance, by offering a balanced combination of the low power ARM Cortex-A7 CPU architecture, advanced fabrication process, optimized DDR technology, hardware 1080p video process support, low power Talking standby mode support during voice call applications, low power MIPI DSI interface, and more. Allwinner A33 features enhanced SmartColor display technology capable of image saturation enhancement and skin tone protection to deliver a better visual effect on tablets, 1080p video playback and capture, Integrated MIPI DSI controller, up to 1280x800 and Integrated Hi-Fi audio codec.
