T-Mobile's G2 will have the new Snapdragon inside set at 800MHz, the battery says thanks

T-Mobile's G2 will have the new generation Snapdragon set at 800MHz
HTC and T-Mobile have decided to clock the new generation Qualcomm Snapdragon, found in the T-Mobile G2, at 800MHz, instead of the 1GHz recommended maximum that the MSM7230 chipset supports. This is hardly a dealbreaker, since the first 1GHz Snapdragon is produced on a 65nm die, and this one uses the 45nm process, which means more performance and better battery life than the previous generation anyway. The G2 will probably be the first production handset to feature a 45nm Snapdragon, so it could really stand out, at least until the dual-core handsets hit the market.

When you clock it at the minimum, you get even more juice out of the battery, and graphics performance will be up to four times better thanks to the new Adreno 205 GPU in this chipset. We can't wait to see what talk and standby times will be on the G2, probably vastly improved, similar to the other 45nm offerings on the market like Samsung's Hummingbird, and the OMAP3 in the two latest Motorola DROIDs. The G2 is rumored to cost $199 with contract, and $499 without.
