Qualcomm, the world’s largest developer of mobile application processors, a new Snapdragon 800-series system-on-chip that features vastly improved performance and capabilities. The new processor is among the world’s first SoCs to support video in ultra-high-definition (UHD) resolutions and formats. Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 application processor promises to become the world’s fastest mobile chip to date.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 features four ARM Krait 450 cores designed to work at 2.50GHz; Adreno 420 graphics processing engine that supports hardware tessellation and geometry shaders as well as provides 40% higher performance than the predecessor; quad-channel LPDDR3 memory controller with up to 25.6GB/s bandwidth; and a number of other innovations, such as new special-purpose multimedia accelerators, enhanced dual camera image signal processors (ISPs) and so on. The chip does not feature baseband capabilities, but supports WiFi 802.11n/ac (2.4 and 5GHz) and Bluetooth 4.0.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 can be paired with Qualcomm Gobi MDM9x25 or the Gobi MDM9x35 modem, powering superior seamless connected mobile experiences. The Gobi MDM9x25 chipset announced in February 2013 has seen significant adoption as the first embedded, mobile computing solution to support 4G/LTE carrier aggregation and LTE Category 4 with superior peak data rates of up to 150Mb/s. Additionally, Qualcomm’s most advanced Wi-Fi for mobile, 2-stream dual-band Qualcomm VIVE 802.11ac, enables wireless 4K video streaming and other media-intensive applications. With a low-power PCIe interface to the QCA6174, tablets and high-end smartphones can take advantage of faster mobile Wi-Fi performance (over 600Mb/s), extended operating range and concurrent Bluetooth connections, with minimal impact on battery life.

“Using a smartphone or tablet powered by Snapdragon 805 processor is like having an UltraHD home theater in your pocket, with 4K video, imaging and graphics, all built for mobile. We are delivering the mobile industry’s first truly end-to-end Ultra HD solution, and coupled with our industry leading Gobi LTE modems and RF transceivers, streaming and watching content at 4K resolution will finally be possible,” said Murthy Renduchintala, executive vice president, Qualcomm Technologies.

The Snapdragon 805 processor is sampling now and expected to be available in commercial devices by the first half of 2014.

Lol, I was thinking Samsung, Apple will be 12 months behind.

Do you mean it could be used in endoscopy equipment? Good idea. It would find that colon cancer that has obviously metastasised to your brain.

You are doing a good job.
Countinu with your as...s licking.

What a poor comeback - you have only entertained us in so far as demonstrating your feeble mind.

40% power of Adreno 320 or 330? if 330, this one should be a beast compare to competitor

How ever will Intel XYZ-Trail compete with this?

I would like to have something like this, but with at least 16 cores, on a laptop form factor, and running linux. I use blender, and the more cores (or Processor threads) that I have the faster the CPU rendering, and short of Nvidia and AMD support for the cycles render, all my rendering must use the CPU! There are plenty of graphics programs out there that can automatically uilize extra CPU cores, without having to be updated! If some company would just make a Many Core ARM CPU, housed in a laptop, with the ability to connect to a descrete GPU, and high res LCD screen, for graphics, they would have a winner! Intel does not want to make any consumer CPUs with more than 4 cores, 8 processing threads, unless the user wants to spend around a grand to get the E verion 6 core chips! ARM chips run at such low power usage, that it would be easy to get a 24 core ARM CPU, or dual socket with multi core ARM CPUs within the laptop form factor and thermal limits!
