    RK3588 8K Arm Cortex-A76/A55 SoC, Rockchip Roadmap to 2020

    RK3588 8K Arm Cortex-A76/A55 SoC, Rockchip Roadmap to 2020

    Rockchip had their annual event yesterday offering a view of past achievements, as well as a glimpse into the future with new products announcements. The company is ready to go to the next level with their Rockchip RK3588 featuring Cortex-A76 and Cortex-A55 cores, 8K video decoding support, 4K user interface support, an NPU 2.0 (Neural Processing Unit) manufactured using an 8nm LP process.

    RK3588

    The processor should have eight cores in a 4+4 dynamIQ configuration according to a tip from ?coldfish?, and the new 8nm process is expected to increase performance by 20 to 30 percent, while the power consumption will be reduced by 40 percent. Mass production is expected for Q1 2020.

    Rockchip Video Encoder DecoderThe company also showed a slide with their video encoder/decoder IP, and Gen3 should be in RK3588 since that?s the only one with an 8K 60 fps decoder using either AVS3 or H.266 (VVC). I?m quite confused with the Gen1 decoder since it shows AV1 implementation too, and as such should be new as well. An 8K 60 fps video encoder is also in the works.

    Rockchip RK3530While RK3588 was clearly the highlight of the show, it was not the only worthwhile addition to Rockchip SoC portfolio, as RK3530 quad-core Cortex-A55 processor with a Mali-G52 GPU, 4K HDR, USB 3.0, SATA, and Gigabit Ethernet is planned for Q3 2019.

    Other notable announcements included RK2108 Arm Cortex-M4 audio chip, and RV1109 dual core 4K H.264/H.265 camera SoC with NPU 2.0 A.I accelerator which are also planned for the second half of this year.

    Rockchip RK2206The company also introduced their first wireless MCU with RK2206 Arm Cortex-M4F microcontroller with 802.11 b/g/n WiFi targeting Internet of Things application and scheduled to sample in Q3 2019.

    A few more details and slides can be found in that article in Chinese.

    this poor man still awaiting strong Chinese Box as well

    But "2020" its so far man!

    Good luck

      RK3530 will be released in Jul/Aug if you want to tinker with it until RK3588 arrives.
      It seems RK3588 will be faster than a Nvidia Shield and too strong for a lot of people?
      I wonder what products the Allwinner and Mediatek Chinese will release, lol.

        RK3530 mid-range powerful TV box chip that is suppose to come close to S922X performance for less money was scheduled to start production in September, but schedules can always be pushed back some; we should at least see some testers and more info releasing from the factory and vendors starting next month. Hopefully the top tv box manufactures will have supply ready for Christmas sales. So I can ask Santa to air-drop one.
