by Anthony Garreffa |
Connectivity wise, you're covered with LTE, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4 LE, GPS and NFC.
The tablet the site used is an 11.6-inch device featuring a 1920x1080-pixel display.

Snapdragon 800 hi K metal gate comes in mid-2013

by Fuad Abazovic |
Both TSMC and Globalfoundries are capable of manufacturing High K metal gate based chips but traditionally Qualcomm used TSMC for high end manufacturing.
This new chip is the company's first High-K Metal gate product, based on the 28nm manufacturing process and the SoC is optimised for low power at peak performance.

Snapdragon 800 entering mass production next month

by Peter Scott |
The Qualcomm 600 already powers the Galaxy S4, HTC one and Optimus G Pro, so we will have to wait a bit before we see the 800 in any mainstream phone.
802.11 B/G/N Wi-Fi, USB 3.0 and 4G LTE are also built into the chip, alongside a quick charging circuit and voice command capabilities.
An internal Adreno 330 GPU will be capable of 4K playback at 30fps.

This page desperately needs to be revisited and updated. How do you have the Snapdragon 800 up against a Core i7 for clock frequency? In your current comparison engine, the gfx capabilities of the system-on-a-chip are also completely absent. For example in a comparison head-to-head against the Snapdragon S4, the 330 vs 320 is not even looked at, and the 800 has "no known advantages" against the S4 Pro -- which you would be hard pressed to find in any devices anyway. I think this particular chip has incomplete data, and based on the now-released devices can probably be revisited for review.
