When it comes to boot times, faster is better, and getting a full restart down to a mere 8-seconds is much better than what many devices have seen before. Sure, this is being demoed for Chromium OS — the open source version of Google's ChomeOS — but also for Android tablets and that's some pretty impressive stuff. From the HKTDC Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Spring Edition) 2014:
Rockchip shows RK3288 Quad-core ARM Cortex-A17 in Tablets, booting Chrome OS (named Chromium OS when not Google certified), playing back H265 4K 60fp HDMI 2.0 10bit, extremely fast Mali-T764 GPU, mass production starts next month.
There's a ton of geeky details in the video so give it a watch and then join me in dreaming about just how powerful our mobile devices are going to be in a few months/years. Because it looks like we still ain't seen anything yet!
