Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 mass production next month

Published by


Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 SoC will hit mass production in late May. Qualcomm did not reveal which devices will use this new 28nm chip, but told the press that samples to benchmark will be available in June. What makes the 800 shine brighter than the 600 is its more powerful Krait 400 architecture, which can maintain a clock speed of up to 2.3GHz; but like before, the four cores are also clocked asynchronously for better power management. 

On top of that, the 800 comes with the new Adreno 330 graphics processor with 30fps 4K playback capability, while still featuring the improved Adreno 320's FlexRender technology that can dynamically switch between direct rendering and binning rendering for optimized performance and efficiency.
