AnandTech – Qualcomms New Snapdragon S4: MSM8960 & Krait Architecture Explored

Given Tuesday’s announcement of the first ARM-15 architecture chip from ARM and TMSC, the ball is rolling now. We’re getting closer and closer to desktop capable CPUs in terms of clock, core and now data/instruction bus widths. Once the ARM-15 64bit chip hits the market Qualcomm is going to need to accelerate its development of competing chips. But for now, I think integrating many functions into the same die will have to do. Here now is Qualcomm’s SnapDragon, Read On:
