Qualcomm APQ8084 2.3 GHz quad-core chip coming in 2014

Wednesday, 30 January 2013

Chip maker Qualcomm just announced a new range of ARM-based processors for phones and tablets earlier this month. But the company is already working on chips that are even more powerful — and Android Police obtained the leaked documents to prove it.

The Qualcomm APQ8084 is a 2.3 GHz quad-core processor based on the same Qualcomm Krait design as the Snapdragon 600 and 800 series processors due out in mid-2013. But not only does the APQ8084 have a faster CPU speed, it’s also the first chip to ship with Adreno 420 graphics.
That will be the fastest graphics processor from Qualcomm to date, and the first to feature support for hardware-accelerated decoding of H.265 videos.
Additionally, the chipset can handle up to 2 USB 3.0 and 2 USB 2.0 connections, 802.11ac WiFi, and cameras with up to 30MP sensors.
Android Police speculates that we’ll first see the 28nm chip in tablets, or possibly even laptops. But it could eventually find its way to future smartphones as well. We won’t see it in any devices at all until 2014 at the soonest, though.
