Rockchip RK3288 is better than Intel Celeron N2840 for Chromebooks

Posted by Charbax – February 25, 2016

This video compares the Haier Chromebook 11E on Rockchip RK3288 with the Samsung Chromebook 2 on Intel N2840. They are also being compared by Moor Insights and Strategy at https://www.slideshare.net/slideshow/embed_code/key/cor4EPWfvP97lt There are several other "latest" Intel Chromebooks from Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo, Asus, Acer, HP which all are running on N2840 Celeron, or N2830 Celeron, and thus for all these, Rockchip can claim to have better value, better performance and better battery life. Thus to be best suited for the worldwide education market.

Here are some of the numbers claimed in favor of the ARM Powered Chromebook in the case of RK3288 vs N2840:
80% better video performance
32% faster multi-tasking
37% faster app loading
265% faster 3D graphics
31% better power consumption for online video, Google Docs and Gmail

I have already been testing the Haier 11E as my main laptop over the last 6 months, and I can tell you that it performs absolutely great. There were some WiFi disconnect issues but I think those have been solved by Google's automatic software updates to the Chromebook. I will post a new video with my Haier 11E Chromebook soon so check back for that.

Moor Insights and Strategy has conducted a detailed analysis comparing Rockchip RK3288 with Intel N2840 Chromebooks which is available as a slideshow here: https://www.slideshare.net/slideshow/embed_code/key/cor4EPWfvP97lt
