Wow... sucks having to save up for prom and senior trip, I would've bought the biggest one. I really want a tablet :(

Rent a motel room and get someone to buy you a bottle of vodka. This way you can make your own prom which will be 100 times better and you'll have extra income for your tablet. It's a win win.

I remember prom night last year, good times, I was harder than the back of a Nokia 3220.

And there goes Archos again... Claiming an "8 core" GPU when they are obviously using the Mediatek MTK6589, with a PowerVR SGX544 SINGLE CORE. And of course not telling that the CPU cores are A7 and not even A9
If there are two companies that are good are selling air those are Mediatek and Archos.

Let me correct you dude
those tablets are using AllWinner A31 Quad Core and a Power VR SGX544MP2 8 Core gpu

Thanks for the correction, as the A31 at least has a somewhat decent GPU compared to the Mediatek one. It may even be able to move so many pixels.
But still, MP2 stands for two cores... Unless you want talk about SIMDs
Where did you get the info from? Archos does not say much.

just a guess that it might be using the same specs as the onda v972 Hahaha

Is there any concrete info on CPU and GPU ?
15. TylerGrunter (Posts: 704; Member since: 16 Feb 2012)
shambugi claims an Allwinner A31 (4xA7 CPU, Power VR SGX544MP2 @355 MHz GPU), and the fact that the claim 8 "cores" GPU makes it very likely.
(see previous comments)
