    Rob Chandhok, Qualcomm's SVP of software strategy, goes on to say that the "S4 dual-core outperforms most quad-core chips - not because of one thing, but because of the overall systems approach." Rob adds the Adreno 320 GPU will deliver 4x better performance without sacrificing battery life. Clock speed is only one part of the equation when it comes to performance, and Qualcomm addresses this by stating that they "just don't think about how fast the CPU is going to be, but the balance between CPU and GPU - all the components of the hardware chain and how they relate to operating systems."

    The snapdragon S4 will be featured in the HTC One X, Asus's Padfone and future Windows 8 handsets. We can't wait for the SoC to drop into the market where it will see it's fair share of comparo's and benchmarks. When a company makes a strong claim you can bet it will be taken to task.

    I don't doubt this. NVidia is a 3D graphics company. I feel the Tegra focuses a lot on the graphics/gaming side of tablets and phones instead of performance in all categories. That being said, is it really a bad thing? I mean, my 1Ghz processor in my DroidX is running CM9 beta very smoothly. The only thing that is really pushing phones/tablets far are the new games coming out for them. I am sure that Qualcomm's chip will play games and stuff just fine too so what is important to me is battery life.

    It would be nice if Verizon actually saw a phone with that chip in it in the near future though. We will probably be lucky to see one by the end of the year

    That's how it always is. We know about chips long before they are ready to hit the street. Just look at how long we have known about the T3.

    Even with some folks complaining, Qualcomm did good with the battery life of the chip in the rezound. It's running at 1.5Ghz too?

    Battery life should start getting better with htc phones, granted they pick decent chips and stop skimping on battery sizes.

    I understand that, but phones with this chip have already been announced with it already but not for Verizon
