Qualcomm’s insanely powerful Snapdragon 600 chip has found a home in many flagship devices, including the HTC One and some models of the Galaxy S 4, and as far as benchmarks and performance goes, it blows everything else out of the water. At this point, it really doesn’t seem like a mobile CPU could get any better. Well, according to Qualcomm, their Snapdragon 800 chip is going to be better. The next flagship SoC is slated to hit mass production in late May, although there’s no word on when it will appear in consumer devices.
The Snapdragon 800 bests the 600 by featuring new Krait 400 architecture, which can maintain a steady clock speed of 2.3 GHz and packs Adreno 330 graphics, which is capable of 4K, 30 FPS output. Needless to say, the Snapdragon 800 is going to be hard to top.
