wow. then that confirms what my ears didn't at first believe, that
the large-volume price of the A20 is $7.50. for a 1.2ghz (possibly
even faster) dual-core processor with SATA, Ethernet, HDMI and
everything else. whereas the iMX6-Dual is $22 for the 1ghz version
i'm.... really confused. why is there such a huge discrepancy in
pricing, here? it's not like there's even any competition inside
china: allwinner's pricing is even lower than other chinese SoCs.
regardless: it's a major turning-point. things get very interesting now.
