Rockchip processors usually power low-end tablets and TV boxes, sometimes Android-powered smartphones as well. Earlier this year, the Chinese chip maker finally entered the laptop market with the first Rockchip RK3288-powered Chromebooks. The next logical step would be Windows, and it looks like Windows 10 has been spotted running on Rockchip tablets already.

According to PadNews, a low-end tablet with a 1,024X768 pixels display and a Rockchip RK3288 processor under the hood has been spotted at Computex 2015 in Taipei. They also have a photo to prove it and, if this not a fake, this is the first time a Windows 10 device with a non-X86 architecture shows up in public.

The tablet runs Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview and has 1.5 GB RAM, as well as a 10-inch display. Windows 10 Mobile will not launch at the end of July, so there is enough time for Microsoft to make it fully compatible with Rockchip, MediaTek, Samsung, or Allwiner chips until it gets out later this year.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
