Qualcomm announces Snapdragon 810 and 808 64-bit processors

Qualcomm is already announcing their new and much more powerful mobile processors they plan to offer smartphone and tablet makers for the first half of 2015. Today, the chip company announced the Snapdragon 810 and 808, both of which support 64-bit programs.

The Snapdragon 810 is the more powerful of the two chips, with eight cores inside. Four of them are high end ARM Cortex-A57 CPUs while the other four are low power Cortex-A53 chips. It will also have the Adreno 430 GPU which Qualcomm claims to have up to 30 percent better performance that the Adreno 420, which isn't even available yet in current devices. The 810 will be able to handle LPDDR4 RAM for memory and will support up to 4K displays.

The 810 will also support the recently announced MU-Mino wireless technology, which the company says will offer much faster WiFi performance for smartphone and tablets. The Snapdragon 808 will be slightly less powerful than the 810. It will have six cores inside; two Cortex-A57 CPUs and a quad Cortex-A53 CPU. It will have the Adreno 418 GPU and support for LPDDR3 RAM.

Qualcomm is still planning to launch its first 64-bit chips, the Snapdragon 610 and 615, sometime before the end of 2014.
