Qualcomm 2.5 Ghz quad chips announced, for Windows 8 in the future?

Interesting article from Brier Dudley regarding Qualcomm’s new 2.5ghz quad core chips.

The speculation is that they will allow the next generation of smartphones to do a lot more.

Here’s some of what Qualcomm are saying will be here next year for smartphones:

  • 12 times more power and 75 percent lower power usage than the first Snapdragon.
  • Quad-core graphics processor “for a console-quality gaming experience.” (Qualcomm’s chief executive hinted at this during HP’s WebOS launch last week).
  • Support for cameras with up 20 megapixel resolution.
  • 3-D stereoscopic photo and video capture and playback.
  • Full 1080p HD and 3-D video output to large screens, via HDMI.
  • Integration with LTE/3G radio modules.
  • Support for PC-type DDR3 memory, plus PCIe interfaces and multiple USB ports.
  • Support for near-field communication.

Maybe these chips will power Windows 8 on mobile devices?
