The SoC in the Dingoo A320 is marked as JZ4732, but it is identified by the
Ingenic code always as JZ4740 (same chip id). I might have read somewhere
that the JZ4732 was some sort of JZ4740 intended for export. Dunno if that's

Many users have reported stable operation of the A320 SoC at 430MHz, which
seems the maximum PLL output.

As far as I know, what makes the difference with Ingenic is their released
information, and I believe the one most benefited from good linux support is
going to be Ingenic.
