Sau khi hãng Nvidia trình làng bộ xử lý Tegra IV, hãng Qualcomm cũng mang đến triển lãm CES 2013 bộ xử lý Snapdragon 800 và 600 thay cho tin đồn về bộ xử lý Snapdragon S5. Cả 2 bộ xử lý mới này điều được thiết kế dành cho điện thoại thông minh cao cấp, máy tính bảng và SmartTV... Theo dự kiến thì những thiết bị đầu tiên được trang bị những bộ xử lý này sẽ sớm xuất hiện trên thị trường trong vòng từ 3 đến 6 tháng tới.

Đầu tiên, bộ xử lý Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 được giới thiệu là có hiệu suất tăng thêm 75% so với phiên bản S4 Pro. Bộ xử lý này được sản xuất bằng công nghệ 28nm HPm, Hexagon V5, hỗ trợ 800MHz LPDDR3 12.8GB/giây tương tự Exynos 5, kiến trúc Krait 400 cho phép xung nhịp lên đến 2.3GHz, chíp đồ họa Adreno 330, hỗ trợ 4K video 30fps, 2K video 2560 x 2048 60fps, hệ thống âm thanh DTS-HD 7.1, DD Plus...

Trong khi đó thì bộ xử lý Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 giống như một phiên bản nâng cấp của S4 Pro với việc điều chỉnh kiến trúc đáng kể cho phép xung nhịp tăng lên đến 1.9GHz, tăng cường đồ họa với chíp Adreno 320, LPDDR3 RAM. Hãng Qualcomm cho biết bộ xử lý mới này được sản xuất để cạnh tranh với những dòng chíp xử lý mới như Clover Trail và Tegra 4. Ngoài ra, hãng Qualcomm cũng phát huy thế mạnh của mình ở mảng kết nối mạng khi tích hợp vào những bộ xử lý này kết nối mạng 4G LTE 150Mb/s Advanced Carrier Aggregation, 802.11ac WiFi và Miracast HD 1080p.

Bên cạnh đó còn có 2 bộ xử lý Snapdragon 400 và 200 sẽ sớm được giới thiệu trong năm nay dành cho những chiếc máy tính bảng và smartphone tầm trung và giá rẻ nhưng chưa có thông tin chi tiết.
