Rockchip has unveiled the RK3399 processor back at CES 2016 and now it looks like this new ARM chip is already near the mass production stage. According to ARMdevices, this "dual-core ARM Cortex-A72 with quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 big.LITTLE at 28nm with ARM Mali-T864 GPU is ready for mass production."

The same source mentioned above revealed an ultra-slim tablet powered by the RK3399 that features dual USB Type-C for charging, data, and display output. In addition to tablets, this new SoC is also expected to power notebooks, TV boxes, and even VR headsets. Its features include Mali-T864 graphics, 4K video playback, HDMI 2.0 output, and more.

ARMdevices expects to see the RK3399 inside much more than the above, also mentioning Chromebooks, Windows 10-driven devices, set-top-boxes, robots, and more. Since this chip should enter mass production soon, first commercially available products powered by it should come out soon as well. We will write about them as soon as they come out, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
