    With my X8-H Plus , XBMC system info reports that the CPU is a A7 and not A9 as stated in the X8-H Plus box. I went to another much bigger and very reputable reseller (not the one I bought from) and convinced them to run the same system info on XBMC for me on a totally different X8-H Plus. That X8-H Plus also report the CPU as A7. Can anyone please shed some light on this discrepancy?

    XBMC/Kodi does not report the CPU as A7, it reports it as ARMv7 which is the architecture used by the Cortex A9.

    This was one of the confusing things that I discovered in the early days of the Cortex A9 and in some ways I still get confused, but that does not take much.

    I like the MINIX forums because they remind me of things that I have learnt, and then subsequently, forgot.
