Qualcomm readies 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon

Written by


ARMed to the teeth
Qualcomm has announced that it will start shipments of its flagship Snapdragon processor aimed at high end smartphones and tablets.

The QSD8672 is a 45nm dual-core clocked at 1.5GHz and shipments are scheduled for Q4. Qualcomm VP of product management Mark Frankel noted that the first devices based on the new chip should appear on the market in early 2011.

The 8672 packs some rather interesting features as well. It can automatically adjust clocks on individual cores, thus allowing devices to place one core into idle more while running the second one at 1.5GHz. It also supports 1080p video and it will allow vendors to integrate HDMI into their designs with ease.

Finally!!!! Makes all those IPhone 4, Samsung Galaxy S, Droid 2, HTC EVO 4G, etc.... seem like Pentium 4 compare to these Core2Duos like new cell Phone. Seriously I was going to get a Galaxy S lol.

Indeed, I'll wait. I want some dual core goodness.

With a battery life of well under 30 min? No thanks!

I start to find it ridiculousness how the handheld devices are getting way to early out of their place in the market. I'm all for evolving but these dual cores won't serve a needed purpose, just that it will flood the markets with more devices that people don't need and I won't even start with the fact that people that bought their toys two years ago will be left out in the dust in terms of support. Iphoney anyone?

true. my HD2 with a 1G cpu cant last a day with stock battery. :o
i have to underclock it to 440Hz. with no noticeable speed difference (except in 3d content and movie clips) im happy with the performance. so y would any1 need a dual core 1.5GHz i wonder :o

45nm dual-core will bring lower power consumption, better graphic animations and a more responsive phone all at the same price we're paying now. The overall core speed is no faster than what is currently on the market.

So this is a win-win situation for consumers.

You're mixing production costs with marketing costs, and I'm with you on lower production costs, but I'm sure the skanks will ask for more just because it's dual core.

Regarding the speed increase, see agent_47's reply. I doubt it is that much needed... a dual core smart-phone is like a 24 core processor used for playing a game. And 1080p?

Yep, today people ooh and ahh over my evo. Tomorrow they'll say, "oh, you still have THAT?"

The point is that for the average user, dual cores and faster speeds will be unnoticeable from the 1 ghz variety now.

The GOOD news in all this is that really great phones like the EVO and Galaxy S will be free with service in about a year :)

There is so much wrong with your comment, I wonder why you come to this, or any tech site at all.

Sad :(

So that I can make *tards like you sad... and hopefully, when the depression builds up, you'll commit suicide in the process and spare us the antics.

I see you've thumb-down'ed my comments... nice! Keep going, you're nearly there!

/sarcasm for the unknowing
