Allwinner Technology unveiled A83T, an octa-core processor targeted at full high-definition tablets.

Based on TSMC's industry-leading 28nm HPC process, the A83T is designed to be a high performance but extremely power-efficient octa-core processor. For that reason, the A83T packs eight highly energy-efficient Cortex-A7 cores that could run simultaneously at around 2GHz, and implements the advanced big.LITTLE architecture to maximise the battery life.

Imaginations Technology's PowerVR GPU is also combined in the A83T to deliver the best balance between graphic processing performance and power consumption.

"Octa-core is leading the market now, so after the remarkable UltraOcta A80, we're here to release another extraordinary octa-core A83T for the middle range tablet market," said Jack Lee, the Chief Marketing Officer of Allwinner. "The system performance of the Allwinner A83T octa core is definitely impressive, but that's not all. Our customers and consumers will be amazed by its extremely low power consumption as well, which even outperforms most quad-core tablet processors in the market."

Another noteworthy feature of the A83T is its implementation of SmartColor technology, Allwinner's latest achievements in display technology, providing tablet consumers with eye-pleasing visual effects.

The first octa-core tablet sporting Allwinner A83T is to hit in Q4 2014.
