|Name||ZenPad C 7.0 (Z170C)|

This x86 tablet has a Mali GPU, which is quite a weird combination. The Lima driver has not yet been tested on x86.
It also uses the Simple Firmware Interface which is being deprecated from the mainline kernel. This device has a very low probability of getting support. Considering that regular UEFI is supported in Linux, porting EDK-II might be an interesting option for getting mainline Linux to boot.
The downstream kernel can be downloaded from Asus, see the "Drivers & Tools" tab here.
For working 3D graphics, mainline would be required, but having a port with downstream could be used in the meantime.
