The single-core MSM8930 integrates an LTE modem designed to take LTE to mass market smart phones. It will include the new Adreno 305 GPU.

The dual-core MSM8960 is the world's first dual-core solution with an integrated multi-mode 3G/LTE modem and was designed to meet the requirements of multi-tasking smart phones and tablets. It will include dual asynchronous CPU cores which can be independently controlled for maximum efficiency. It will also support dual-channel LP DDR memory and feature the Adreno 225 GPU.

The quad-core APQ8064 will be designed to meet the performance requirements of the next generation of computing and entertainment devices while minimising power consumption. As with the Snapdragon dual-core, the APQ8064 will include four asynchronous CPU cores which can be independently controlled for maximum efficiency. The Adreno 320 quad-core GPU debuts in the APQ8064 processor where it enables console-quality gaming and renders rich user interfaces.

The APQ8064 will also include a variety of features that make it a compelling processing solution for use in mobile entertainment and computing devices, including support for both PC and LP DDR memory, serial and PCIe interfaces, and multiple USB ports. The APQ8064 will also seamlessly integrate with Qualcomm 3G and LTE MDM modems and modules, giving OEMs a flexible and cost-efficient platform that can meet all of their design configuration needs and help reduce time to market.

Samples of the MSM8960 are planned for Q2 2011 and samples of the MSM8930 and APQ8064 are planned for early 2012.
