Qualcomm updates Snapdragon processors

Written by



New swept wings, improved fire-breathing


Qualcomm has announced several revamped Snapdragon S1 processors, along with a few new S4 chips in tow.

The outfit revised its S1 series MSM7225A, MSM7625A, MSM7227A and MSM7627A processors to offer somewhat higher performance and facilitate the transition from 2G to 3G. There is no word on the exact performance increase or clock boost, but the S1 series will still be reserved for entry-level smartphones. We believe they are best suited for affordable Windows phones.

The new S4 series is a bit more interesting. Based on the new Krait core, the S4 series will be the backbone of Qualcomm’s processor portfolio in 2012 and beyond. The new chips include MSM8660A, MSM8260A, MSM8630, MSM8230, MSM8627, MSM8227, APQ8060A and APQ8030. These are additional chipsets to the previously announced MSM8960, MSM8930 and APQ8064, notes Qualcomm.

Again, there is no information on the final specs or performance projections, but we are obviously looking at 28nm single- to quad-core parts with next-generation Adreno 3xx or Adreno 225 graphics and some will possibly support LPDDR3 dual-channel memory.
