Qualcomm previews dual-core Snapdragon chips

Platform offers dual 1.2GHz Scorpion cores

Qualcomm has previewed its latest Snapdragon SoCs, each based on the MSM8x60 processor built using the 45 nm process. The platform integrates dual Scorpion cores running at 1.2GHz, with graphics accelerated from a dedicated Adreno GPU. Two variants will be available for smartphones and tablets: one for GSM, UMTS and HSPA+ connectivity, and another for CDMA and EVDO Rev. 0, Rev. A and Rev. B networks.

The company demonstrated the new chips on a development platform that takes the shape of a smartphone. Notable capabilities include stereoscopic 3D -- streamed in HD to a supported TV via HDMI -- and video conferencing for multiple participants. Despite the power of the SoC, the company suggests the Scorpion cores can be turned off for a significant savings in power during normal tasks.

Qualcomm has yet to announce a time-frame for MSM8x60 components arriving on the market. [via AnandTech]
