Allwinner A10 : Is XBMC ported to MALI-400MP ?
The Allwinner A10 is what's known as a system-on-a-chip (ystem on a chip" target="_blank">wConfusedystem on a chip (wiki)). It's a single chip that contains the CPU, GPU, and some other stuff. The CPU part is ARM. A Mele A1000 is a box that uses the Allwinner A10 SoC.

XBMC does indeed have ARM support, but that's just one part of the SoC. The operating system also needs various support for the SoC, and XBMC needs support for the OS.

Another example is Apple's "A4" chip inside the iPhone 4. (this "A" is unrelated to the Allwinner). A4 is their name for their SoC, which contains an ARM CPU.

So think of it as this: Mele A1000 is a planet, Allwinner A10 is a country, and ARM is a city. It's chips inside of chips inside of chips.

As for the A13, I have no idea.
