Qualcomm used its annual Uplinq developer conference to show off the first quad-core Krait chip in action.

Qualcomm’s Raj Talluri, the man in charge of Snapdragon development, took to the stage to demonstrate the new chip in a development tablet. Designated APQ8064, the SoC features four Krait cores running up to 1.5GHz. It can hit 1.7GHz when just a single core is active.
