CES 2013: Qualcomm Launches Flagship Snapdragon 800 Processor

Qualcomm used its first CES keynote to launch its new flagship mobile processor, the Snapdragon 800. Designed for the demands of high-end smartphones and tablets, the new chip boasts 75% better performance than Qualcomm’s previous top-of-the-line chip, the Snapdragon S4.

Qualcomm created the 800 to deliver the best mobile experience possible while still maintaining good battery life. Said to be capable of speeds up to 2.3 GHz, the 800 is built around the company’s quad-core Krait 400 CPU.

A new graphics processor, the Adreno 330 GPU is twice as powerful as its predecessor.
