Qualcomm Technologies is excited to now expand the Snapdragon 600 series processors to include the newly renamed 8064M (formerly Snapdragon MPQ8064), which had been part of the Snapdragon S4 Prime series processors under the earlier Snapdragon processor tiering structure.
There’s been a lot of fuss in China about who was actually first to deploy a quad-core system-on-a-chip and how the term “quad-core” has been misinterpreted as the only component of the processor that’s driving performance.
Qualcomm Technologies believes that there’s more to a processor than the number of CPU cores. To prove this, the company came up with four side-by-side videos that show how a Snapdragon™ processor with dual CPUs trumps a competitive solution with Quad CPUs.
Qualcomm unleashes the world's first integrated always-on, low-power listening feature.
These new Snapdragon 400 and 200 processors make many of the most coveted Snapdragon processing technologies available to more people.
Earlier this year, Qualcomm announced the new tiering structure for Snapdragon processors, including Snapdragon 800, 600, 400 and 200. While the Snapdragon 800 and 600 processors are clearly targeted at premier and high end smartphones, tablets and mobile computing devices, the Snapdragon 400 and Snapdragon 200 processors take Qualcomm’s technology leadership into the mid-tier and entry level smartphone segments.
Is your new phone charging much faster than your old one? It’s not your imagination, it’s by design. Your new phone or tablet could have new Qualcomm technology that speeds up charging so you can pick up your mobile device and go.
The top performing Qualcomm Snapdragon™ S4 processor is the “Best Mobile Processor of 2012,” taking top honors in a prominent research firm’s annual Analysts’ Choice Award.
Hidden inside the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series processors is the Adreno 330 GPU—a graphics processing unit that can deliver up to 50% better graphics performance and twice the compute performance of its predecessor.
Today Qualcomm Technologies is introducing new names and tiers for the upcoming 2013 line of Snapdragon(TM) processors. You probably became acquainted with the Snapdragon processor through smartphones and tablets, though the new line will expand into other consumer electronics.
Earlier today we announced several new Snapdragon processors in our new Snapdragon 800 and 600 processors (you can read more about our new brand tiers here). Smartphones, tablets or any devices loaded with the latest Snapdragon processor will feel really fast and offer long battery and I’d like to take the opportunity to tell you more about our newest flagship processors.
The Snapdragon 600 Processors
At IFA Berlin, Dell and Samsung have each launched a 10-inch tablet and have taken major steps in making Microsoft’s Window RT the next big thing in mobile devices. The Samsung ATIV Tab is a 10-inch tablet that falls under the company’s new “ATIV” brand and delivers a full Windows 8 experience. Likewise, Dell launched the XPS 10, a gorgeous 10-inch tablet that caters to both consumers and professionals.
Here in sunny San Diego, it’s easy to lose perspective on the global smartphone adoption rate. Everywhere I look, I see mobile devices being used as nothing short of a sixth sense. From one-off activities like friends checking the weather or a Padres score, or a local store owner running a small business from the palm of their hand, smartphone activity is enveloping our daily lives.
Over the past few years, Microsoft has used Snapdragon processors in all of their Windows Phones. Inside every Window Phone 7 handset was either a Snapdragon S1 or S2 processor. The close collaboration between Microsoft and Qualcomm has resulted in a sea of fast and powerful smartphones with great battery life. So fast, in fact, that Microsoft invited anyone to come into a Windows Store to get “Smoked by Windows Phone.”
The Snapdragon™ S4 processor is incredibly cool. I mean that literally.
