Qualcomm adds two new S4 Play processors

Written by Fudzilla staff



Cheap and cheerful quads


Qualcomm has added two new chips to its Snapdragon S4 Play lineup. The chips are aimed at low cost smartphones, but they still pack quite a punch. Both are quad-core 45nm parts based on the A5 architecture.

The MSM8225Q runs at 1GHz to 1.2GHz and supports UMTS, while the MSM8625Q features support for CDMA as well. Both chips feature Adreno 203 graphics and they are said to be compatible with dual-core MSM8225 and MSM8625 chips.

It is an interesting twist. In the high-end Qualcomm’s Krait parts can easily hold their own against quad-core offerings from other ARM partners, yet in the low end Qualcomm will be the first major manufacturer to offer quad-core parts for peanuts.
