    Qualcomms Snapdragon S4 is by far the most talked about SoC outside of Nvidia's Tegra 3 and it just got benchmarked. The new chipset delivered more than twice the CPU power of any currently-shipping chipset in some tests and with comments like this, from AnandTech, it leaves us wanting to see more:
    The only real "negative" is that Qualcomm chose to use the Adreno 225 GPU rather than wait for the Adreno 3xx series to be ready. The 225 performs well, but it's more akin to what we’re seeing in current devices. The S4 roughly comes in right alongside the Apple A5. The first Snapdragon S4's are expected to ship Q2 2012 and will more than likely get some "face time" at MWC 2012. For the full benchmark of this awesome SoC, head on over to AnandTech.

    Yea, if you have an upgrade coming up soon, wait for the Krait phones. Fast! The Intel cpu's should smoke as well!

    Krait looks very impressive. I am looking forward to see how it will compare to TI OMAP 5430 (dual core A15). They should both be a step up from Tegra 3.

    That 28 nm config really gives it some brawn

    I read that whole article from the source and I am pumped! My favorite quote: You're looking at a generational gap in architecture here, not simply a clock bump.

    One thing about the krait IIRC is the LTE battery drain won't be so bad? That alone is enough to hold out. Luckily I have an upgrade available... I can have fun with my razr and rezound and wait on the next wave of super phones.

    Yesh. this + TI radio chipset = lower battery drain and extra space for mah battriez. I'm glad my upgrade won't be coming until the end of the year.
