Recently All Winner announced that their new UltraOcta A80 Mobile application processor utilizing the Imagination PowerVR 6230 64-core GPU would be coming to mobile devices very soon. (I call this the Super UltraOcta just for the effect)
Maybe not many people know this but All Winner utilized HAPS-70, the Xilinx Virtex-7 2000T based systems as part of the development and validation cycle for the A80 Octa SoC
The All Winner SoC features eight ARM big.LITTLE cores and the Imagination PowerVR GPU core. With both CPU and GPU you end up with a lot of hardware/software interaction which we know requires extensive validation to ensure that both the hardware and software are bug free. The high performance of the HAPS FPGA-based prototype enabled a huge volume of tests to be run which are needed to flush out those hard to find bugs.
