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.

Nvidia is working on something along those lines.
It really would be wise to better the battery technology before adding any more goodies into a phone.
Yeah, lets complain that cellphones keep advancing in technology. Rolling Eyes
Actually the Iphone 4, Samsung Wave, Epic and Galaxy already have built in GPUs (graphics processing units) in them. Their just like the graphics cards on a PC. Its called the SGX from a company called Power VR who by the way built the GPUs for the Se...
You know, I remember a time when I actually thought having a camera in a phone was stupid and I would never need or want one. Now, I can't imagine having a phone with less than a five megapixel camera.

My daughter will one day not be able to imagi...
It will never be. As the tech becomes smaller, and more energy-efficient, mobile devices will become closer to laptops in features and capabilities. Which is awesome. It reminds me of sci-fi ideas from Neuromancer and Ghost in the Shell, all rolled...
They already do... Laughing Most Smartphones have a separate gpu already on board. But these new cpu's scare me a bit as far as battery life. They could probably put out 2ghz processors but battery life is holding them back... for now! Cool
