Apple A6

► remove

The Apple A6 is a dual-core SoC found in the iPhone 5 with ARM compatible CPU cores. The A6 was developed by Apple and supports the extended ARMv7s instruction set. The clock rate of the CPU is between 800 to 1200 MHz depending on the CPU load. The integrated GPU is a PowerVR SGX543MP3 at 266 MHz.

Rockchip RK3066 1.5 GHz

► remove RK3066

The Rockchip RK3066 is a cheap ARM based SoC for Tablets and Smartphones. It integrates two ARM Cortex-A9 (ARMv7) CPU cores with NEON extensions, a ARM Mali-400MP4 (quad-core clocked at 250 MHz) graphics card and a video de- and encoder as main components. The integrated memory controller supports a maximum of 2 GB DDR1, DDR2 or DDR3 memory.

The CPU cores can be clocked up to 1.6 GHz depending on the cooling solution of the tablet / smartphone.

Additional Features according to Wikipedia
