The first tablet with Rockchip RK3288 will soon be out by iFive, a Chinese company. Meanwhile we were able to check out the performance and benchmarks of Rockchip RK3288 CPU. The first tablet to use is called iFive Mini 3 and it packs 8.9 inch display, 2GB RAM, front and rear camera and runs Android operating system.
As you can see above, the processor is backed by ARM Mali T760 GPU. Compared to the outgoing RK3188 from Rockchip, let us see how the RK3288 fares in GFXbench 2.7 T-REX HD and 2.5 Egypt HD.
As you can see RK3288 is a massive improvement over the RK3188 that was used in wide range of Chinese tablets. This is chiefly due to the fact that RK3288 has Cortex A17 architecture and runs at 1.8 GHz. RK3188 runs at 1.6 GHz and is based on Cortex A9 which is much inferior than A17. In other words, the new chip is about 50 percent faster in CPU performance.
