  • SHENZHEN, China, May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- At 3 pm on May 21, Fuzhou Rockchip Electronics Co., Ltd. held the promotion of "A9 Dual-core Chip RK3168 of the World's Lowest Power Consumption" in Midsummer Hall on the third floor of Shenzhen Pavilion Hotel. The promotion attracted a large number of solution providers, brand manufacturers and trade media, showing that RK3168 had entered the stage of mass production.


    Compared with dual-core chips on market, RK3168 has three major advantages:

    Power consumption: Dual-core chip with the world's lowest power consumption, one time lower than dual-A7 program;

    Design: Quad-dual compatible, one board for double purposes;

    Performance: The performance of RK3168 with dual-A9 core is two times higher than dual-A7 program with half the power consumption, because it uses 28nm. RK3168 supports the latest Android 4.2.2 system and Miracast screen mirror, and achieves multimedia sharing between mobile phones, tablet PCs and TVs.

    RK3168 chips have world-class ultra-low power consumption, only half that of the Cortex-A7 dual-core chip, and is lower than almost all the dual-core tablet PCs on the market. A 7-inch tablet PC with 3000mAh battery can play HD video for eight hours continuously. RK3168 uses ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core architecture, the highest frequency is 1.2GHz, and the chip has high overall performance, which is higher than the industry's current dual-core chip solution.

    Quad-dual compatible, with one board for double purposes, is the most significant feature of Rockchip RK3168. At present, only RK3168 can achieve quick switching between dual-core and quad-core of the same PCB board. Dual-core RK3168 can be replaced with a high-end 28nm RK3188 quad-core chip pin to pin, so that solution providers and brand developers can save costs and time in product development, have a more comprehensive product layout and quickly respond to the changes in the dual-core / quad-core market.

    The RK3168 program has passed the Google Global GMS and CTS certification, and can easily help customers access the mainstream market in Europe and America.


    Nowadays, quad-core has become the hottest topic in the tablet PC market, but single-core still occupies a large part of the market. Dual-core is expected to replace single core this year. RK3168 features high-end performance, low power consumption and is cost effective, getting the industry's attention and generating a new round of competition in the dual-core market.
