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.
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.
Asus has made the Memo pad 10 tablet ME103K official. Priced at just 199 euro, the Asus ME103K features a 10 inch display packing 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. We have been told that the Asus ME103K memo pad 10 will have over nine hours of battery runtime and Android 4.4 kitkat operating system. It will make its debut in November in Europe and will first launch in Netherlands and Belgium.
The Asus ME103K memo pad 10 replaces the ME102A. The ME102A came with Rockchip RK3188 processor which was not very accepted or enjoyed by the consumers. But since the new Asus ME103K memo pad 10 makes use of Qualcomm APQ8064 snapdragon S4 pro CPU, the company is finally able to offer a rock solid tablet at a very low price tag. The Snapdragon S4 Pro processor consists of a quad-core ARM Cortex A9 1.5 GHz and an Adreno 320 GPU.
The Asus claims 9.5 hours of runtime on a single charge which is not bad for a 10 inch tablet. The tablet measures 174 x 256 x 9.9 mm and has a traditional design with rounded corners. The screen packs IPS technology and 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. Other components include 1 gigabyte of RAM and 16 gigabytes of internal flash storage that is expandable via micro SD storage.
As expected this Asus tablet runs Android 4.4 kitkat with Zen UI on top. It will hit the stores in November with a price tag of 199 euro.

Both of these new processors will be offered to the OEMs within the first half of year 2015.
