Quad core CPUs coming to mobile phones

Popular handset chipset manufacture Qualcomm has already announced a successor to dual-core processors at MWC in Barcelona, a quad-core version that will be coming to phones and devices.

The next line in the Snapdragon family is set to boast four cores, with an Adreno graphics processing unit in the upcoming APQ8064 chipset which will be geared up for mobile and tablet devices.

Qualcomm’s flagship chipset is based around a new architecture code named ‘Krait’, with a 28nm micro-architecture which will reach speeds of up to 2.5GHz per core with low power and heat consumption.

The Snapdragon APQ8064 chip will be able to drive larger screens with higher resolutions, along with multi-tasking and HD gaming up to 1080p and over HDMI.

There is also a 75-percent lower power consumption than the first generation of Snapdragon processors, with twelve times the performance.

Adreno 320 quad-core graphics processing unit (GPU) brings to the APQ8064 fifteen times the performance of the first rung of Adreno GPUs, with a console gaming quality graphics and 3D video recording on a 20 megapixel camera.

All of this will provide to the likes of tablet and mobile phones unprecedented performance, battery life and low heat output.
