Windows 8 will support Dual/Quad core Snapdragon Processor_Windows 8 announces Computex 3 June 2011....

Now again with Windows 8 we would have some talks about its processor installed and much more…

While dual core was the star at MWC 2011, together with the 3D technology, well it seems that the Sony NGP console will not be the only portable gadget on the market featuring a quad core processor. Qualcomm announced the new 2.5Gz quad-core Snapdragon chipsets.

The new chipsets will come in single, dual and quad core, and supports Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi, radio FM, LTE and NFC modem. Qualcomm said that the new chipsets are enhancing the performance with 150% when compared with the ARM CUPs and they are optimized to drain 65% less battery. The dual core MSM8960 chipsets will be available in the second quarter of 2011, while the MSM8930 single core and APQ8063 quad core versions will arrive in the beginning of 2012.

The new line of Qualcomm chipsets will bring us single, dual and quad core processors, capable of running at 2.5GHz frequencies each. Now the fastest process announced for a smartphone is the one on HP pre 3, which has 1.4GHz, but we are talking about a single-core CPU. The new processors, code-named Krait, will be made using the 28nm technology and will also feature 3D video recording / play and also for 3D images capture.

As you probably know the ARM and x86 platforms were already confirmed as valid for Windows 8, after several months of rumors and speculations. Now, Qualcomm came with informations about how the chipset manufacturer wants to build support for the Microsoft operating system.


The first CPU coming with Windows 8 support is Snapdragon MSM8960, a dual-core with a 3G/LTE integrated modem, capable of speeds up to 2.5GHz, followed in the beginning of 2012 by another processor, a quad-core, this time Snapdragon APQ8064.

It’s understandable that the companies that were traditionally providing processors for Windows will continue to do it, Texas Instruments and NVIDIA being among the ones worth mentioning, but so far they haven’t even revealed the small details Quallcomm made official.
