Fastest Android Headunit Processor: UIS7862

Move over, PX6, you have served us well with your impressive hexacore system accessing a very useful 4Gb of RAM, but we have a new winner ????: UIS7862.

UIS7862 Answers

Is the UIS7862 a good processor for an Android head unit?

Yes. The UIS7862 is a high-speed processor, an ideal choice for an Android headunit.

Is the UIS7862 considered a fast processor?

Yes. The UIS7862 is considered to be a fast Android headunit processor.

Is the UIS7862 a quad-core?

No. The UIS7862 processor has 8 ARM cores and an octa-core processor.

What’s in a name?

The unimaginatively named UIS7862 is the latest and greatest processor in most of the fastest Android headunits. Having 8 high-speed cores and access to an impressive 6Gb of RAM will keep the headunits operating smoothly with anything you can throw at it.

PX6 vs UIS7862

While the PX6 is still a ‘high-end’ processor compared with other previous generations of processors used in headunits, the UIS7862 is quicker and can access more RAM. A faster headunit is nice to use, less frustrating when switching between apps, and will have the extra needed for future apps yet to be written.
This makes the headunit experience much like today’s phone and less like a few years ago.

The UMS512 vs UIS7862

The UniSoc UMS512 is based on the same 8 cores as the UIS7862. The Two ARM A75 and Six ARM A55 cores give the Octacore configuration and are identical to the UIS7862. It has the same specifications as the UIS7862 and benchmarks at similar speeds.

Should you upgrade?

If you like the latest tech, then yes. If you have the PX5 pumpkin or one of the many PX6 universals, then if you are happy with what you have, stick with them. There is plenty of life in the PX5 and PX6.

The UIS chip will be upgraded or surpassed, which may be a better time to upgrade.

If you are running an 8227L DEMO 1 GB or 2Gb headunit, now is the time to upgrade! The new UIS7862 processor is a world away from 8227L_ALPS chips. Anyone will notice the difference between 8227L and UIS7862 straight away.

There are universal and custom-fit Androids that feature the new UIS7862 chip; look at them here on Ali Express.

6 GB RAM and 128Gb ROM

The new UIS7862 chip is often coupled with a generous 6Gb of RAM. This extra RAM is always helpful for future-proofing. You can never have too much RAM. Android is quite RAM-hungry, but the extra ROM doesn’t impact much. Most users will not even use 64Gb ROM, so doubling to 128Gb ROM is not a significant improvement, even if it makes the figures look better.

Optical Out

A standard extra found on the UIS7862 chip-powered headunits is the ‘Optical out’ feature. The audio output for an external amplifier by coax and optical helps to increase the compatibility for the universal fit Android headunits. If you need this feature, it is available as standard on many faster headunits.


Faster is always nicer, and more RAM is always better for Android to provide a smooth experience. If you are looking for an upgrade to your existing Android headunit or are in the market for your first, picking one with 6 GB RAM and the quick UIS7862 octa-core processor won’t disappoint.

Hopefully, the unimaginative name that hardly trips off the tongue won’t hold back what everyone has been waiting for faster and more capable Android headunits.

Technical Info UIS7862

UIS7862 is a 64 Bit microprocessor with 8 processing cores, clocked at 1.8GHz each. The 8 cores comprise Two ARM Cortex A75 (3-wide decode, out-of-order, superscalar pipeline) and Six ARM Cortex A55 (2-wide decode, in-order, superscalar pipeline). The ARM A75 and A55 combination breaks away from the traditional big.LITTLE design and moves on to the next-gen DynamIQ system for further speed improvements.
