VIA for cheap tablets and smartphones

Reading time is around minutes.

VIA under market name WonderMedia presented another mobile processor for cheap smartphones and tablets. Featured chip WM8880 is designed for mobile devices from the lower market segment and should compete with similar solutions like MediaTek and other companies.

VIA WM8880 has two ARM Cortex-A9 core 1.5 GHz, which is similar to the existing WM8850 introduced last year. But in relation to the latter, the new SoC brings dual Mali 400 MP2 graphics processor (WM8850 has a single-core) with the expected higher graphics performance and capability of simultaneously running several video files in HD quality.

According to the published results of tests made by unnamed 7-inch tablet with Android 4.2.1, WM8880 shows solid performance sufficient for less demanding users, but as expected, less than MediaTek MT6589 chip with four cores.
