Apple A6 vs Rockchip RK3066 1.5 GHz vs Rockchip RK3188

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

  • VPU (Video Processing Unit) Multi-Media Processor supporting 1080p image and video decoding
  • HDMI 1.4 Interface
  • 2-channels TFT LCD Interface with 5 layers and 3D Display (1920×1080 Maximum Display Size)
  • USB 2.0 Interface
  • SD/MMC Interface

Rockchip RK3188

► remove

The Rockchip RK3188 is a fast ARM SoC primarily designed for tablets. It integrates four ARM Cortex A9 cores with NEON extension and a clock speed of up to 1.8 GHz, a Mali-400 MP4 graphics card (up to 600 MHz, 24 GFLOPS) and a low-power (LP-)DDR2/DDR3 memory controller. Due to the high clock rates, the performance of the CPU and GPU is superior to other Cortex-A9 quad-cores such as the Nvidia Tegra 3 and Samsung Exynos 4412. These high frequencies are possible due to the 28nm process (TSMC). However, this results in high power consumption and is thus not suited for compact smartphones.
