Qualcomm is reportedly hard at work on a new processor, something that should blow most other chips away when it comes out. The chipmaker is rumored to be working on a new SoC that would feature 8 processing cores, and would be 64-bit compatible.

The new SoC would feature eight Krait64 general-purpose cores designed in-house at Qualcomm, and would be compatible with ARMv8 architecture with up to 4MB of cache and a 2.5GHz clock speed. We should also expect Adreno 430 graphics on-board (up from the 330 series) with a 500MHz frequency, LPDDR3/LPDDR4 memory controller, and various special purpose hardware/accelerators.

Qualcomm's new SoC would be made on the 20nm process over at TSMC. We should expect it to arrive as the Snapdragon 810 series, with two versions: MSM8994 with integrated baseband and APQ8094 that will require an external telecommunications chip.
