At the CES 2013 Keynote, Qualcomm announced their new Snapdragon 800 and Snapdragon 600 processors. At the keynote, we got a few demos, including this rendering of a fire breathing dragon in a modern looking game environment. Qualcomm claims that the 800 will supposedly deliver up to 75% better performance over the Snapdragon S4 processor, while the 600 will deliver up to 40% better performance compared to the S4.
The Snapdragon 800 will be spearheaded by a quad core Krait 400 CPU that will be clocked at speeds up to 2.3-GHz. The Snapdragon 600 will be powered by a quad core Krait 300 processor that will feature clock speeds up to 1.9-GHz.
Both processors will allow you to record UltraHD video, which has four times the pixel density of 1080p. Both CPUs also support display resolutions up to 2560 x 2048. The 800 and the 600 both support 802.11ac, the newest wireless standard, as well as 4G LTE data transfer rates of 150MBps.
The Snapdragon 800 and the Snagdragon 600 should start showing up in devices this summer. In the meantime, stay tuned for further coverage of Qualcomm announcements as well as all things CES 2013.
