    Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon MSM8655 Processor


    From the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) and Verizon Wireless today announced that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon MSM8655™ processor as well as Qualcomm’s MDM9600™ LTE modem chipset will be used in a variety of new connectivity devices that take advantage of the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network.

    Qualcomm’s Snapdragon MSM8655 system-on-chip combines Qualcomm’s enhanced CPU at up to 1.2 GHz, latest Adreno GPU and low-power architecture to provide Verizon Wireless customers with the company’s most highly optimized chipset for application performance available today. With the ability to provide virtually anywhere, anytime access to a variety of 3G and 4G network technologies, Qualcomm’s MDM9600 chipset is Gobi™-enabled and supports theoretical LTE data rates with full backward compatibility to EV-DO Rev. A/Rev. B.

    “We are excited to be working with Verizon Wireless to help support this 4G network milestone and showcase the continued technology leadership we believe we’ve achieved through our Snapdragon platform,” said Steve Mollenkopf, executive vice president and group president of Qualcomm. “At the same time, our MDM9600 chipset supports Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network, and our easy-to-use software API helps streamline integration efforts, spur application development among third-party developers and deliver greater flexibility to device manufacturers. This level of software and hardware integration has already yielded several connectivity solutions for Verizon Wireless’ new LTE Mobile Broadband network, with more devices to come.”

    As 4G technologies begin to proliferate around the world, Qualcomm continues to provide the industry-leading 4G chipset roadmap that allows partners to design new devices and form factors that allow consumers to take full advantage of the coming increase in network data rates and speeds.

    “Today’s increasing demand for more powerful and faster network connections continues to play to our key technology strengths when it comes to designing leading-edge, multi-mode chipsets. Due to our long wireless heritage, deep engineering expertise and flexible product offerings, both carriers and manufacturers alike continue to turn to Qualcomm to power the majority of today’s 3G and 4G devices in a variety of form factors such as smartphones, tablets, USB dongles, mobile hotspot routers and embedded modules,” said Cristiano Amon, senior vice president of product management at Qualcomm. “As carriers around the globe attempt to bring devices to market that both seamlessly bridge the transition from 3G to 4G networks and provide the highest levels of CPU and GPU performance, we believe Qualcomm will continue to be a key chipset and modem partner moving forward.”

    Devices using the Snapdragon MSM8655 processor and Gobi-enabled MDM9600 chipset will be highlighted from Jan. 6-9 in Verizon Wireless’ booth (#35216 in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center) at CES.

    Basically says no dual core this year, which in turn means no dual core toting thunderbolt before 2012.

    Yea I saw this at work earlier today, then went and checked the wiki. There might be some dual core Snapdragons out......by the end of this year.

    If not definitely in 2012.

    Well going to assume since dual core was really not seen by public until today that there is no real answer to this but... Anyone know how these chips compare.. By reading the press release they make it sound like it will perform at the same level as the dual cores that are coming out? I know technically if you have two lower clocked processors that they can combined run smoother hypothetically, but is it possible to get the same kind of performance from a single core if "tweaked" right.. dual core or single core if the system isn't right it won't matter.. any thoughts??
