Big GHz fight in 2011

Qualcomm has decided to show its dual Scorpion based MSM8x60 mobile CPU and it also told the world that this CPU can hit 1.2GHz, per core that is.

The chip has an Adreno 220 GPU that we know little about and of course its a 45nm chip since 28nm should be only ready in the latter part of 2011. The chip should be able to do high definition stereoscopic 3D video, and multi-party video conferencing as well as some nice gaming.

It is intended for tablets and phones and you can bet that you will find this core in one of the future HTC phones, simply as Qualcomm has quite a few shares in HTC, or so we heard.

With its 1.2GHz core clock MSM8x60 looks to be faster than Tegra 2, but Tegra 2 is available today and Qualcomm is still to ship its first tablet or phone based on this chip. Browsing with two cores should be significantly faster than with one core, which kind of makes sence, but again, lets see it shipping in real designs first.

Let’s not forget Texas instruments who is about to ship its 1GHz OMAP 4430 chip and with hope to see 1.5GHz version later this year.

You can read more about the MSM8x60 and see Anand Lal Shimpi's fancy shoes here.
