Allwinner A83T vs RK3288, Atom Z3745, Snapdragon S4 Pro by Qualcomm

Allwinner A83T is an eight core processor that is designed for cheap tablets. We had a chance to use the InFocus C2107 7 inch Android tablet for some time and the first thing we did were few benchmark programs to see how it fares with likes of RK3288, Atom Z3745 and Snapdragon S4 Pro by Qualcomm.

The Allwinner A83T specifications includes 2 GHz octa core that is based on ARM Cortex A7 architecture with PowerVT SGX 544MP graphics.

I will be honest with you – while these benchmark tests the raw power, all chips are speedy enough for your daily work.

Allwinner A83T vs RK3288, Atom Z3745, Snapdragon S4 Pro

After spending some time with our InFocus C2107, we have come to conclusion that the processor is powerful enough to handle most games, videos and web browsing which is surprising since I tis meant to be used in such cheap tablets.

The Allwinner A83T will be used in tablets that cost between 150 to 200 dollars.
