Qualcomm will ship a newer version of its Snapdragon processor by the end of this year, with devices to follow soon after. The new dual-core QSD8672 chip will run at clock speeds up to 1.5GHz. The chip will be manufactured using a 45nm process. The new processor will use a feature Qualcomm calls individual voltage scaling, so each of the two cores can be clocked independently for better power management. The chip ups the ante on video capabilities, with the potential to display 1080p video content, up from the 720p capability of the older MSM8660 Snapdragon chip. The new chipset will also integrate HDMI output.
