Rockchip’s RK3288 processor is starting to show up in Android-powered tablets and TV boxes. Now Rockchip is also showing off a prototype of Chromium OS running on a system with its new ARM Cortex-A17 quad-core processor.
Chromium OS is the open source version of Google’s Chrome operating system. Rockchip says the ARM Cortex-A17 processor offers strong enough performance to open up to 30 Google Chrome browser tabs at once.
The RK3288 chip features ARM Mali-T764 graphics with support for 4K video and H.265 video decoding, and when ARMDevices caught up with Rockchip at the HKTDC show in Hong Kong this week, the company was showing devices powering 4K displays.
Rockchip is also showing a handful of Android tablets with the new RK3288 chip, featuring cold boot speeds as short as 8 seconds.
