Qualcomm intros new octa-core Snapdragon 615 and quad-core Snapdragon 610 64-bit processors
Qualcomm repeatedly let it be known that it doesn’t consider that the number of cores is essential when it comes to the performance of a mobile processor. Of course, this is true. Thus, it’s surprising to see Qualcomm announcing the launch of its own octa-core processor. The upcoming SoC is called Snapdragon 615, and it has eight 64-bit ARM Cortex A53 cores. It will be joined by a Snapdragon 610 - this is also 64-bit capable, but it’s going to have only four cores.

Both new SoCs include Adreno 405 GPUs, and come with LTE Cat 4 support, while also integrating “critical 3G technologies, including HSPA+ (up to 42Mbps), CDMA, and TD-SCDMA.”


According to Qualcomm, the first commercial devices using he new Snapdragon 610 and 615 processors should be available starting the fourth quarter of this year - hence later than devices using the more powerful Snapdragon 801 (which was also announced today).
