We knew they’d be on display  at CES 2011, but Rockchip has decided to allow an early look at their new RK2818 and RK29 processors. As mentioned before, the ARM A9-based processors support more RAM than the previous version and are fully OpenGL compatible (unfortunately, attempts to launch a 3D game during the demo resulted in a crash) and can also handle full 1080P video.

It’s the RK2818 in an Archos 7 tablet shown at the beginning of the video, and the unit seems to be quite responsive — maybe not on par with more top-flight tablets like the Galaxy Tab or iPad, but bear in mind that RK28 and 29 series chips will power devices which are much less expensive.

  1. Wait, so Rockchip turned up the juice on the RK2818?? There are already all sorts of tablets with the RK2818 and it’s definitely not a 1GHz chip. The RK29xx is a new series, though.

    No matter, you do a deal with Rockchip, you do a deal with the devil. SDK? What’s that, never heard of it.

  2. I suspect these are ARM9, not ARM (cortex-)A9, making them ARMv5, not ARMv7 compatible…
