Allwinner A10 : Is XBMC ported to MALI-400MP ?

Like Famaku already mentioned.

Video Processor Unit, which is basically a small SEPERATE part of the chip in the SoC which will take care of the video decoding. So in short to be complete;

CPU = Processor
GPU = Video processor (like you video card)
VPU = video decoder chip

If XBMC uses the GPU the menu's are smooth, when it also uses the VPU the video are smooth as well. IF not is has to fall back on NEON, which are just some special CPU instructions helping the CPU a bit to do the work, but you can imagine the CPU of most android devices can not cope with stuff above SD material.
