Model: The Archos 101 Magnus Plus is a sleek looking tablet packed with quality hardware. Design is kept simple with a full gloss front surface and a rounded top edge. The rear is a minimalist panel with the Archos branding right in the center. The 570 g device is equipped with a Rockchip RK 3288 Cortex A17 quad-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz, 2 GB RAM and a huge internal storage of 128 GB. Users can opt to increase the storage capacity with a MicroSD card by up to 128 GB. The 10.1 inch IPS panel delivers superb colors and contrast.

The tablet is a perfect multimedia companion and the dual front facing speakers emphasizes this as the audio quality is impressive. In addition, the Android 4.4 KitKat device sports a 5 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front shooter. An unusual feature of this tablet is its mini HDMI port for direct connection to a compatible external monitor without an adapter. The gigantic lithium ion battery rated at 7000 mAh makes for a battery life of up to 9 hours during video playback.

ARM Mali-T760 MP4: Quad-core ARM Mali-T760 MP4 (also known as the Mali-T764) clocked up to 600 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
