Three new chipsets announced at MWC by Qualcomm

Three new chipsets have been brought to the MWC event this year by Qualcomm; the Snapdragon 801, 610 and the 615. As the name suggests, the Snapdragon 801 is only a tiny update for the already existing Snapdragon 800 and they both are going to hold a lot in common for obvious reasons. But the new 801 is certainly an enhanced version and hence it will hold a lot of improvements. For beginners, the clock speed has been given a little bump and has now risen from 2.26GHz to 2.45GHz and also the GPU clock speed has received an increment from 450MHz to 578MHz. the same goes for the memory bus which is now 933MHz (an increase from the previous 800MHz).

These were the improvements so far and when we talk about minor changes in the new Snapdragon 801, we have the added support for the eMMC 5.0 standard. This is going to allow the use of faster embedded flash storage for instance the new SanDisk iNAND Extreme. We are expecting to see the chipset on the upcoming Samsung and HTC flagship devices after its release somewhere in this quarter.

On the other hand, the Snapdragon 610 and the 615 form part of the Qualcomm's newest 64-bit chipsets family. The 610 chipset features four 64-bit ARM Cortex A53 cores with an Adreno 405 GPU and the 615 further improves the core count hitting for the eight core A53 configuration. The rest of the features of these two chipsets are more or less identical in some ways. Unlike the 801, these two will make their appearance somewhere in the last quarter of this year.
