Unfortunately, though it has 192-core GPU, it still uses quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 CPU. The processor doesn’t use 64-bit technology like Apple’s, but rather 32-bit ARM Cortex-V7.

Instead, it has bigger memory of 40 bits. The positive impact is smartphone or tablet using this processor chip can have RAM up to 8GB.
