Qualcomm sebelumnya mengunakan nama procesor mobile dengan Snapdragon S1, S2, S3, S4 dan S4. Kedepan nama tersebut akan ditinggalkan.

Qualcomm baru saja mengumumkan procesor mobile baru untuk tahun 2013. Snapdragon 800, 600, 300 dan 200. 2 top model adalah 800 dan 600.  Qualcomm mengatakan Snapdragon 600 memiliki kecepatan 1.9Ghz, 40% lebih tinggi dibanding quad core Krait dan Adreno 320.  Artinya Snapdragon 600 lebih cepat dibanding Snapdragon S4 Pro.

  • Quad Core Krait 300 CPU—running at up to 1.9 GHz
  • Adreno 320 GPU –offering over 3x the performance of A225 &, as the first GPU in the Adreno 300 series and introduces support for new mobile and GPGPU compute APIs       such as OpenGL ES 3.0 , OpenCL and Renderscript Compute
  • LPDDR3 RAM— (Low Power Double Data Rate 3)this faster RAM gives a speed boost to the channels which data flows.  By increasing the speed at which the data flows to each component, performance is boosted throughout the entire processor.
  • Overall Performance Boost—we expect the Snapdragon 600 processor to deliver up to 40% better performance than the Snapdragon S4 Pro processor.

Kalau Snapdragon 600 sudah lebih cepat, bagaimana dengan Snapdragon 800. Snapdragon 800 lebih cepat 75% dan grafiknya lebih cepat 2x. Kecepatan 2.3Ghz dengan enhanced Areno 330 GPU tetapi tetap hemat power. Fitur lain disebutkan koneksi LTE Cat 4 modem lebih baik dan koneksi WIFI 802.11ac sampai 1gbit/s. Dukungan QFHD video recordong, mendukung resolusi gambar 2560x2048 pixel.
  • Quad Core Krait 400 CPU—speeds up to 2.3 GHz, per core
  • Adreno 330 GPU—featuring patented Flex Render Technology and leading edge API’s that are designed to expand the use of GPU processing for general computing and other SoC tasks, the Adreno 330 GPU offers a 2 times better compute performance than Adreno 320 
  • 2x32bit LPDDR3 RAM at 800MHz – with industry-leading memory bandwidth of 12.8GBps.
  • 4G LTE Cat 4 and 802.11ac—these connectivity options offer blazing fast, seamless connectivity with cellular modem boasting data rates up to 150 Mbps and 802.11ac at speeds up to 1 Gbps.
  • UltraHD—video can be captured, played back and displayed in UltraHD (previously called “4K.”)  The resolution has four times as many pixels as 1080p. (1920x 1080 versus  4096 × 2304)
  • HD Audio—support for DTS-HD, Dolby Digital Plus and 7.1 surround sound.
  • Dual Image Signal Processors (ISPs) up to 55MP – with support for up to four cameras and allows for 3D captures, photo merging into a master 55MPixel image, separate autofocus and captures, 1080p30 video captures.
  • Overall Performance Boost—the Snapdragon 800 processor is expected to deliver up to 75% better performance than the Snapdragon S4 Pro.
Tampilnya Snapdragon baru akan muncul 6 bulan kedepan, atau pertengahan tahun ini.
