Allwinner A33 is a quad-core CPU for just USD 4

The Chinese maker of mobile device processors Allwinner has announced that its latest A33 chip has entered mass production. A really peculiar feature of the new chip is that it costs just USD 4.

Allwinner believes that devices based on the A33 will cost USD 30-60 due to the very low price of the A33 processor. The chip has four computational Cortex-A7 cores and ARM Mali-400MP2 graphics. In addition to that the new piece of silicon can play and record up to 1080p video, power displays at up to 1280 x 800 resolutions and offer support for the SmartColor technology.

The new features of the A33 do not end here – the chip is electrically compatible with the older A23 processors and needs very little power – Allwinner says the chip needs less power than any other quad-core Cortex-A7 processor on the market. According to the company a tablet with a 4000 mAh battery and powered by the A33 is able to remain in standby mode for 300 hours, play video for 6 hours and play music for 8 hours.

The first devices based on the A33 should appear by the end of summer 2014.
