[Engadget] Qualcomm's 1.5GHz MSM8660 Destroys the Competition

Take the 1GHz Scorpion core residing in Qualcomm's current flagship Snapdragon, the MSM8x55, duplicate it, overclock the resulting pair by 50 percent, and give them improved graphics in the form of Adreno 220. What do you get? A barnburner by the unsexy name of MSM8x60. Yes, the 1.5GHz Mobile Development Platform Qualcomm loosed on the world at CES earlier this year has found itself prostrate on a test bench, where it has produced some of the finest graphical performance scores yet seen on a mobile device. The taxing OpenGL ES 2.0 test you see above shows the new Snapdragon doubling the frame rates churned out by Motorola's mighty Atrix 4G (which admittedly has to work harder thanks to its higher-res display) and completely embarrassing older generation hardware like the EVO 4G. That's a theme carried on throughout AnandTech's benchmarking, which you may explore in full at the source link. If you're wondering when this world-beating dual-core chip will be coming to market, the answer is that it's already inside HTC's imminently upcoming EVO 3D and Pyramid devices, albeit running at a tamer 1.2GHz. Exciting, eh?

Tegra 2 has officially been made obsolete Good thing I didn't pick up an Atrix

YAY!! I knew you could do it, Qualcomm!!

Qualcomm has the fastest chip. HTC uses exclusively Qualcomm. Ergo, HTC will have the new fastest device ever... again.


Good nows indeed

You just described the HTC Pyramid although I'm not sure if it has Gorilla Glass.

Wow, looks nice, I think I've got a couple months before I get a new phone, will be my first smartphone. Hopefully I can find one that fits my needs:
  • 1.5GHz MSM8660
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB on board storage and a micro-sd slot
  • hi-res 4.3" screen
  • Good battery life with a removable battery so I can have more than 1 with me.
If I can find a phone like this one verizon I will be very happy.

edit: having 4g LTE capabilities would also be nice.

Two 1.5ghz cores to be less than 50% faster than one 1ghz hummingbird? I'll still take a hummingbird over dual core catchup product thank you. The only thing this shows is that they put a GPU thats twice as fast on it.
