I noticed a difference immediately.

Sorry, I'm not familiar with android devices as this is my first one....
But I want to help if I can, so let me know which files you need and where I can find them in the device and I'll upload them.

I am NOT sure Tab 4 7.0 is for Gaming because Marvell PXA1088 and Vivante GC 1000 combination seems NOT to be okay.
However Tab 4 8.0 should handle all latest games with NO noticeable lag because of the Qualcom MSM8226 and Adreno 305 (with OpenGL 3.0 ). So I would suggest you to buy this if want a gaming Tab 4.
The same situation happened with Tab 3 series where Tab 3 8" was the gaming one because of its Exynos Dual 4212 CPU and the Quad Core Mali-400MP GPU. Even Tab 3 10.1 Gaming was a bit worst than Tab 3 8" (and I had the Tab 3 10.1 P5210)

Well I am taking it back and getting a pro 8.4, this is a pretty slow device all around, also the screen resolution stinks for reading. I like the new interface tho. Good luck with the porting!

How does it compare to the new 1.6GHz quad core RockChips (Cortex A9)?

I experienced working for PXA988 device Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 in kernel level, though I don't own this device. Based on Marvell, PXA1088 platform compatible to PXA988, both powered by Vivante GC1000 GPU. Some information for you:
  • Tab 3 7.0 ramdisk size limited to 1MB from the bootloader, too small for custom recovery
  • No USB host support, hardware limitation
  • No AOSP reference out there, it's hard to build a custom ROM
.
I have used information you provided here and your degas-mkbootimg tool to build a custom recovery. I am posting it soon. Thanks!
