    About half a month ago, the quad core tablet PCs apply with A31 chip burst out like torrents. The famous processor supplier Rockchip also released its new quad core chip, the RK3188. Fortunately, today we get a real item running with this chip, the Pipo M9.

    As we know, the RK3188 applies with the latest 28nm processing with the most stable Cortex-A9 quad core architecture. It embedded an enhanced Mali-400MP GPU with quad core processing unit and running frequency of 533MHz. In addition, the new Rockchip RK3188 can be overclocked to max. 1.8GHz. So what is the actual performance of RK3188. Next, let’s do some benchmark on it.
    Compared with Allwinner A31 and Actions ATM7029, the RK3188 uses Cortex-A9 architecture which makes it performs much better than both of them. As the purpose of Cortex-A5 and Cortex-A7 architecture is developed for assistant processor for lower power consumption. The performance of them is worse much than Cortex-A9 base chips. Below, it is a compare table of these three quad core chips.

    According to the result, we see the performance of Pipo M9 is very powerful. The RAM scores 3208, we can infer that the data transmission of it is very excellent. The CPU integer/ float point score are also not bad, it proofs RK3188′s powerful calculating ability. 2D/3D graphics score states RK3188 can render more exquisite image.

    Through the Antutu score chart we see M9 surpasses the most popular Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3, even the latest Nexus 4 been beaten by it.

    According to the result, M9 works much better in multi-thread processing, it will easily handle multi-task smoothly.
    Nbench
    It includes three aspects, MEM, INT, FP. MEM refers to the performance of CPU bus, Cache and storage. INT refers to integer processing ability. FP reflects the double-precision flops processing speed. The test time is about 10 minutes. All of the three tests perform good.

    After the benchmark, let’s see how it performs in conventional use.

    When you rename the firmware pack to “Update.zip”, put it in the root directory of your memory card and insert into M9, it will recognize the update pack and asks whether to update the firmware. That makes the firmware update more easily and conveniently.

    Apps drawer, we can see that Pipo M9 applies the customized UI.

    [​IMG]
    Google play, youtube and facebook runs perfect on it.
    The following two pictures are video screenshots, both video are 1080p, in different formats. They both can be played without delay and lag.

    [​IMG]
    10.1 inch screen with 1280*800 resolution provide a better visual experience. The picture is clear and the view angle is also very wide, nearly 178 degree.
    As they said the running speed of Mali-400MP4 in RK3188 be increase to 533MHz, let’s see how it deals with 3D games.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    These two pictures above are game screenshots. This is a game that needs high performance configuration, or it can’t be ran smoothly on the machine. Fortunately, the performance of Pipo M9 is enough to run this “Most Wanted”. The enhanced Mali-400MP4 reveals the highest visual effects of “Most Wanted”, the clear reflection on the glass of the car, the motion blur effect when it boost up had been presented vividly.
    As the first RK3188 quad core tablet PC, Pipo M9 performs very excellent, it surpasses both A31 and ATM7029 based tablets. It’s definitely the most powerful quad core tablet PC at present.

    Thank you for the review. Very interested.

    I have been looking for months as I need 20 tablets.

    I wish all reviewers would show a photo taken with camera. I have only found one review (for Pipo M8) that actually showed an example.

    All the review pictures are screenshots by software, that makes the benchmark details looks more clearly.

    This is the one. The best so far in benchmark from china. I would really love to make mine. How is the front and back camera quality like? what about the battery stats on stress.

    Maybe next time, if we get the another sample device, we can take it out and capture some photos. Since the manufacturer only gives us a few hours to play the tablet, we have no time to test the battery.
