    I am still on my old 3gs...I cannot wait until I am able to switch to either a Exynos 4212 or a S4 based phone! Tegra 3 looks to be to much of a hog for me. I think the 4 cores will be less useful than a higher speed dual core with proper video decoding and lower power usage. Reply

    Just because a SoC has less cores dont mean it has lower power usage. The Tegra 3 has a 5th core that only runs when the phone is locked / not in use. And that core uses less power than any dual core SoC's that i know of. Reply

    4 cores though. Who needs that? We need 2. One for everything except for the foreground application, and one for the foreground application. I don't see this changing in 2012. The higher clock dual core will have sufficiently low power usage. Yes, during idle T3 may be lower, but it won't matter. Reply

    Isn't APQ8060 an S3 snapdragon? HP TouchPad, T-Mobile Galaxy S II and Galaxy S II Skyrocket already have it.

    So I guess you meant that APQ8064 won't be out until the latter part of 2012, right? I thought it'd come in 1H 2012.

    Also, where is MSM8974?
