    As one of the most significant partner of Rockchip, almost all the tablets provided by Cube had adopted the processor from Rockchip. During the update period of single core to dual core, Cube took action rapidly by releasing the Cube U30GT Pea which sports the RK3066 processor chip. The new Cube U30GT Pea obtains a 10.1 high resolution IPS display which is the flagship model currently.

    RO3066 processor chip was released in the HongKong Spring Electronic Trade Fair. Compared to the single core chip RK2918, RK3066 has achieved a great progress. The architecture of CPU has been improved to Cortex A9. And the manufacturing processing has been updated from 55nm to 40nm which fasten the running speed efficiently. The frequency of Cube U30GT Pea is up to 1.6GHz. The compatible problem which caused by Vivante now has been resolved by revising the GPU from Vivante to ARM Mali-400. In additionally, the resolution processor of GPU is quad-core. As the quick development of Android system, the hardware of the tablets is expected to be very brilliant. “2+4”processor can offer a very strong hardware support for Android ICS 4.0 system. And now let’s learn more about the Cube U30GT Pea.

    Specific features of the Cube U30GT Pea

    The standard accessories included in the Cube U30GT Pea are Warranty card, USB cable, OTG cable and power adopter. The specification of the adopter is 12V/2A. The battery of Cube U30GT Pea is consists of two 3600mAh lithium battery which need a high voltage. Therefore, it does not support USB charge on your pc. There are two screen protectors on the tablet, users are expected to move one and remain the inner one to protect the display.

    As we can see, the design of the Cube is mature and elegant. The metal surrounding of edges leaves us a stable and strong impression. The thickness of the tablet is remarkable. The material on the back side is plastic which is smooth and mellow. The picture of the Pea made the Cube U30GT Pea lovely and cute. White color is classic and fashionable.


    About display

    Cube U30GT Pea is not the fist one to adopt the 10.1 IPS display, but the features on the device is still attractive. Too much 9.7 inch IPS display on the market, the 10.1 inch IPS display gets more followers by providing more exquisite effects and a wider visible angel.

    To be specific, the IPS display of Cube U30GT Pea comes from HannStar which is also used in Asus TF101 and SmartQ T20. The resolution is up to 1280*800. The illumination is up to 350cd/㎡ and the contrast is up to 600:1. Same as other IPS display, the Cube U30GT Pea gets a very wider visible angel. The exquisite images and high illumination offers you a very comfortable effect.

    More features
    The turn-on speed of Cube U30GT Pea is very fast, less than 25 seconds. The UI interface is the original interface of ICS operating system. But we can still find some differences of the pre-installed apps which are belong to the RK platform and APK player. The Google service sets will be available in some online games.


    The system of the Cube U30GT Pea is brilliant. It supports 802.11b/g/n WiFi and support WiFi-Direct which allows two devices can be connected with each other without the wireless routing. The 3G dongle which is used on Cube U30GT Pea also can be shared by other devices. After the test, we found out that the WiFi is steady. To increase the WiFi, Cube has used the metal aerial which makes the WiFi powerful. Different from other domestic devices, Cube U30GT Pea supports Bluethooth which allow the tablet connect other devices easily. I’ve tried to convey the files from the tablet to mobile, the speed is very fast.


    Cube U30GT Pea comes with the HDMI output, select the option means that the tablet can support HDMI output, and the resolutions of the video is optional.

    Through the test software we can find that, the CPU of Cube U30GT Pea comes with NEON media driver with 40nm manufacture processing and 512KB secondary buffer memory. The display frequency is floating from 252MHz to 1608MHz. The display resolutions are up to 1280*800. GPU on the device is ARM Mali400MP4, but what surprised me is the device supports OpenGL ES-CM1.1 instead of OpenGL ES 2.0. It may caused by the compatibility of RK3066 platform. The total RAM storage is 888.3MB. The maximum available on the device is around 700MB which is less than AML8726-MX. Additionally, Cube U30GT Pea supports 10 points capacity touch screen, but when the touch points is more than 6, the sensitive of the display will become lower.

    Normally, the frequency counter which is offered by the supplier is higher than the real one. But the frequency of Cube U30GT Pea is totally shocked me. Basically, the default frequency can be classified to 9 rates(252/504/816/1008/1200/1272/1416/1512/1608MHz), the frequency would be 252MHz when it is on the standby statue and the maximum is up to 1.6GHz.

    Test on Antutu
    Although the hardware test has no too much relationship with user experience, but for a new processor chip, the test on the device is very necessary. Here is the Antutu test of Cube U30GT Pea.

    The score is up to 7598 which is higher than the models which adopts the Samsung 4210 processor. The feature is less than the Asus TF201 which is the Quad-Core model. This high score will be attributed to the high frequency of the device.

    GPU test
    Same as the AML8726-MX, the GPU of the Cube U30GT Pea is the Mali-400. What’s the makes them different is that AMLogic is dual core while Cube U30GT Pea is quad core. The frequency of RO3066 is 266MHz while AML8726’s is up to 400MHz. But the resolutions of quad-core Cube U30GT Pea are much higher than other ones.

    Cube U30GT Pea has a pre-installed Adobe Flash Player 11.1 which ensures the flash can be shown on normally on your device without any extra update of install. The devices which comes with the Adobe Flash can be much fast on website loading and rendering. The operation on the website is responsive and fast. The GPU acceleration works efficiently on the device.

    Cube U30GT Pea also supports UA mode. The default is Android Flash mode which can be adjusted to iPad (HTML5).

    The video rendering on the Cube U30GT Pea is excellent even for the HD videos. There is rarely stuck on the device while playing the movies.

    3D games effects
    The GPU of ARM Mali-400 has a very good performance in 3D graphic and 3D games processing.

    From the test of MMOgame, Cube U30GT Pea gets an impressive performance in compatible the products. Besides these games, Cube U30GT Pea can support more games. From the test we can find that there is no big difference between the RK3066 and AML8726-MX. And the Cube U30GT Pea comes with the Google service module which allows you play the games which need the market authenticate. What’s more, 1280*800 resolutions do not impact the games, most games support automatically resolutions adjustment.


    Video decoding
    Although the Allwinner A10 made an extremely decoding capability of 2160P, 1080P is more practical in the daily use. Rockchip RK3066 does not get too much change. But it supports 3D video, HDMI and double-display output.

    There is no difference of between the interface of dual-core and interface of single core. The video tags, illumination adjustment and Scaling are already available on single core. Multi-audio-tracks can be shifted in the Cube U30GT Pea. Further more, the 3D function is available on the device, users are expected to equipped with the 3D glass and choose the 3D option to enjoy the 3D videos.

    Cube U30GT Pea supports full interface HDMI output and double display output which allow the device play the videos during the output processing. The output effects which are up to 1080P@60Hz are elegant. The scaling in the tablet does not impact the play on TV. Generally speaking, the compatibility on the Cube U30GT Pea is outstanding enough to meet the customers’ demand.
    Compatibility

    PDF rendering
    The PDF files can be rendered very fast on the Cube U30GT. Most of the files are able to load in 2 to 3 seconds with a very smooth turn-over and scaling. Regarding the 10.1 inch size of the device, it can be such a remarkable PDF reader.

    Compatibility
    The compatibility of the RK2918 resolution on Android 4.0 tablets is normally. After been updated to Cortex A9, the compatibility still remains the same level as RK2918. The upgrade on performance makes the install, rendering and running smoother and steadier.

    Many apps have the tablet version for options. And a great number of the apps also support HD version which offers you a very impressive use experiences. During the trial of these days, I have not fought any incompatible apps for the device.

    Conclusion
    As the first dual core model of Rockchip RK3066, Cube U30GT Pea got a really complete technology supports. The powerful reliability of dual-core CPU and quad-core GPU have been showed efficiently during the test and trial. The smooth level has been improved obviously compared to RK2918. Gorgeous display, high testing score, rapid website rendering and great compatibility of the games left me an amazing impression. But the weak point should be there is not too much improvement of video decoding, and the poor compatibility of Window 7 system is expected to improve in the future. In conclusion, Cube U30GT Pea can be described as the represent model of dual-core device and the optimize work will be followed in the coming days which means Cube U30GT Pea still gets a space to modify. With the improvement, I believe this device will get more attention in the market.

    I guess I'll wait a bit. It's going a little over-budget at the moment.
