Five Technology just added the page to their site today.
And this now makes no damn sense.
The CPU is listed as A9. If it’s going to be the Rockchip 3288, it should be A12.
And the GPU is listed at the Mali 400 — not the Mali T76x that’s paired with the 3288.
So the report of Five using the 3288 for the Mini 3 was incorrect [Google Translate]?
I don’t think Five would play a trick on us, so I take the specs as they are.
Given that it’ll be using the same CPU and GPU as the original Mini 3, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s released by mid-February.
All this new Mini 3 will be is an upgrade of the original and not the leap in CPU horsepower I was hoping for.
I’m not sure if this is something I now want. It’s difficult to justify going with a Rockchip 3188 when the Tegra 4 is available.
Same-day update: What’s missing in the specs — so far — from iFive? Any mention of Bluetooth!
