Qualcomm has been working quite a bit on their new quad core chipset and it shows. The results below are eloquent and the benchmarks speak for themselves. We’re dealing with the new Snapdragon APQ8064 Pro processor, that packs a lot of punch. The CPU was demoed on the reference design slate, that’s shown below.
The Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 developer tablet kit involves a quad core CPU, 2GB of RAM and it runs on Android 4.0.4 ICS. This 10.1 inch slate supports a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution and the amazing part here is the part with the benchmarks. Quadrant hits almost 8000 points, which is great considering the likes of the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity and Pad 300 score around 4000+ points. AnTuTu is also through the roof in result and Vellamo gives you 2546, once again an impressive result.
Most devices today that reach 5000 in Quadrant or so are amazingly Qualcomm dual core S4 Snapdragons, so Qualcomm is still at the top of the game. Samsung Galaxy S III and the Nexus 7 just got beaten easily. Now it’s time to ask ourselves what brands will go to Qualcomm for their future tablets. HTC would be a nice addition, Samsung too and probably ASUS too.
