Rockchip had a small presence at CES this year, where the company was showing off a handful of new devices including the Geekbox hackable mini PC and a new virtual reality headset. But the folks at Notebook Italia noticed something I missed: Rockchip also unveiled two new processors at the show.

The Rockchip RK3229 is a quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor with ARM Mali-400MP2 graphics with support for 10/100 Ethernet, HDMI 2.0, and 10-bit H.265 2160p video playback.

Rockchip’s RK3399 processor also supports 2160p videos, but it’s a more powerful chip based on ARMv8 64-bit architecture.

The RK3399 is a hexa-core processor with two ARM Cortex-A72 CPU and four ARM Cortex-A53 cores, Mali-T864 graphics, support for dual-channel memory, and for Gigabit Ethernet connections. This model features ARMv8, 64-bit architecture

We’ll likely see TV boxes, and possibly tablets and other devices featuring these new processors in the coming months.
