Qualcomm releases fresh lineup of Snapdragon processors

Say goodbye to the Qualcomm Snapdragon S1, S2, S3 and S4 — the company that clawed its way inside so many new smartphones last year has decided it's time for an overhaul. The firm says the 800 and 600 processors are 75 and 40 percent better performing than its latest S4 Pro — which powers devices like the Google Nexus 4 and the LG Optimus G — while it has made improvements to data speeds, multimedia capabilities and more.

Both chips have been redesigned with a new architecture, components and technologies to bring performance and efficiency improvements. That new architecture — featuring a quad-core Krait 400 CPU — sees the 800 weighs in with speeds of up to 2.3 GHz per core. 

The 600 processor, on the other hand, features a new Krait 300 quad-core CPU which brings speeds of up to 1.9GHz.

Between the two new processor families, Qualcomm says it's already got 50 different products lined up to use the chips, and is looking to have quite a few more.
