Start64!Last summer we were telling you the low-cost chip maker was working towards a 64-bit chip that will bestow cheap Android tablets 4K video capabilities.

Well the Allwinner A64 chip is now official as a quad-core tablet-friendly piece of silicone that’s made up of ARM Cortex A53 CPU cores.

The neat thing is that the chip has been made to support Android 5.0 Lollipop and the latest Linux 3.10 kernel.

We have yet to see an avalanche of Android 5.0 Lollipop slates arrive on the market and the current ones (like the Nexus 9) are pretty premium, but with the A64 budget Lollipop slates might be a reality soon.
