Based on TSMC’s 28nm HPC process, Allwinner A83T is designed to be a high performance and an extremely power-efficient Octa-core processor. For that reason, A83T packs eight highly energy-efficient ARM Cortex-A7 cores that can run simultaneously at around 2.0GHz, and Allwinner says that it implements the advanced big.LITTLE architecture to maximize the battery life. Imaginations Technology’s PowerVR GPU is also combined in A83T to deliver balanced graphic processing performance and power consumption.

Egreat Realtek RTD1195 and Rockchip Media Players, RK3188 Game Console

Posted by – October 12, 2014

Egreat STBs based on Realtek RTD1195 dual core Cortex A9 SoC with 4K, H.265 video decoding support. The video also features older Realtek and Rockchip Android TV Boxes, and an RK3188 based game console (Egreat K3).

Egreat will launch their A-series media players soon: A3 and A9 models. I contacted the company for some more details, but since the product is still in development, there are not willing to disclose complete details at this stage.

Here are the specs I could gather for Egreat A9:

SoC — Realtek RTD1195 dual core ARM Cortex A9 processor
System Memory — N/A
Storage — N/A. Possibly a SATA bay is also present (Unclear)
Video Output / Input — Composite, Component and HDMI output (MHL).
HDMI input Audio — HDMI, Stereo output (RCA), and S/PDIF
Video Playback — 3D blu-ray video playback + full video format support. H.265 decode support.
Audio Playback — 7.1 raw audio output “framepacking”.
Connectivity — Ethernet, WiFi with dual high-gain external antennas, and Bluetooth (TBC).
USB — 1x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0
Egreat A-series media player will run Android 4.4 Kitkat.Even though specs are incomplete at this stage, RTD1195 based products should be able to transfer data quickly and play high bitrate 4K videos smoothly thanks to high performance interfaces such as Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0 and SATA. CPU and GPU performance will however be greatly inferior to the new application processors from Amlogic S802, Rockchip RK3288, or AllWinner A80.

This post was adapted from Upcoming MeLe and Egreat A-Series 4K Android Media Players to Feature Realtek RTD1195 SoC (cnx-software.com).
