Qualcomm Goes 64-bit for New System-on-a-Chip
The latest Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 410, is the first in the processor line to feature 64-bit capable ARM cores. Built using the Cortex-A53 CPU and the ARMv8 architecture, the new SoC will run at around 1.2GHz. The Cortex-A53 is paired with the Adreno 306 GPU and four cores are packed into a single Snapdragon 410. The 28nm LP manufacturing process is used and results in a power efficient chip that should make its way into mobile devices in the second half of next year with retail prices under $150 a strong possibility.
