Qualcomm basically demoed the Snapdragon 800 SoC running on a development tablet dubbed MSM8974 MDP/T. In case you didn't know, the Snapdragon 800 has four Krait 400 CPUs cranked to 2.3 GHz. It also has Adreno 330 graphics and a new IP block with a category 4 LTE.
Qualcomm also tested the SoC on a development phone with the code name MSM8974 MDP. During the benchmark tests, the MSM8974's Krait 400 throttled its four cores up to 2.3GHz. The SoC also handled videos pretty well by encoding UHD 4K video to 120Mbps.
The secret behind Snapdragon 800 is TSMC’s 28nm HPM (High Performance for Mobile) HK-MG technology, which is capable of achieving higher CPU clocks, ranging from 1.5GHz to 1.7GHz.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
