Snapdragon Quad core will be released in 2013

A presentation of Qualcomm leaked on the Internet, revealing the roadmap of the manufacturer. It provides details of its chips and LTE processor code by the name of Krait, a dual core SoC etched 28 nm with deliveries expected to begin in six months. This new line of processors was announced last June and the roadmap today unveiled their characteristics.

The MSM8960 is a dual core that will run between 1.5 GHz and 1.7 GHz. It will have 1MB of L2 cache and integrate two memory modules LPDDR2 clocked at 500 MHz. The SoC will be compatible HSDPA, and LTE + and the graphics can play 1080p HD video at 30 frames per second, to support stereoscopic 3D images and 20 Megapixels.

He joined the Adreno 225 chipset supports DirectX 9 and 3 with a power ShaderModel announced 125 million triangles per second. The GPU had made an appearance at CES 2011. The MS8960 is the first chip Qualcomm certified for Windows 8. First deliveries are scheduled for the end of the year for marketing the output of the operating system that has been confirmed for 2012.

The worst performing model, the MSM8930, has two cores running from 1 GHz to 1.2 GHz, 1 MB of L2 cache and a memory module running at 533 MHz LPDDR3. Compatible with HSDPA and LTE +, there is a graphics chip Adreno 305 which is most likely a new architecture. It will be able to play 1080p HD video at 30 frames per second, to take over the stereo and treatment of 12 Mpixel pictures.

DirectX9 Compatible ShaderModel and 3, it is capable of 80 million triangles per second. Finally, the flagship product of Qualcomm MSM8974 will. Presented in February, it is a quad core running at 2 GHz and 2.5 GHz with 2 MB L2 cache and two modules LPDDR3 of 800 MHz.

It integrates a GPU capable of Adreno 320 HP 1080p video playback at 60 frames per second, with photos of 30 Megapixels and calculate 225 million triangles per second. It expects first quarter 2013. Qualcomm's document was hosted on Megaupload. However, it was removed from the server at the time of writing this news.

As noted last June, the features are interesting and the firm should offer chips that can stand up to other SoC.
