Qualcomm debuts Snapdragon 805 SoC

Newer and newer mobile devices need more powerful processors and while the Snapdragon 200/400/600/800 families do the job, Qualcomm has decided to introduce an even more powerful processor – the Snapdragon 805.

The new chip has been designed from the ground up to deliver 4K Ultra HD video on mobile devices. To do so the chip makes use of the integrated Adreno 420 GPU, which is 40 per cent faster than its predecessor. The integrated GPU is fully capable of recording, editing and playing 4K videos and if this is not enough it also comes with 4K HEVC decoding.

Four computational Krait 450 cores also hop onto the Snapdragon 805, making it the first mobile chip to run at 2.5 GHz. In addition the cores enjoy memory bandwidth of 25.6 GB/sec, while the chip provides support for 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

The only downside of the Snapdragon 805 is that the chip has not entered mass production – it will do so in H1 2014.
