Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Processor Powers Advanced 3D Gaming and Stereoscopic 3D in the Latest Tablets and Smartphones

SAN DIEGO Feb. 10, 2011

"Our work with industry leaders has allowed us to showcase the full spectrum of Snapdragon’s graphics and multimedia capabilities in both the tablet and smartphone space across major software platforms," said Raj Talluri, vice president of product management for Qualcomm.  "With more than 75 Snapdragon devices already announced, 150 Snapdragon devices in development and over 100 high end mobile games optimized for our GPU, Qualcomm continues to be a leader in delivering high performance devices to market."

The first webOS tablet, the HP TouchPad, offers a 9.7-inch diagonal multitouch display, an innovative and intuitive multitasking UI and a robust platform for game development.  Qualcomm and HP collaborated with Polarbit to optimize its action-packed arcade flight simulation game, Armageddon Squadron II, for the HP TouchPad.  Running on the HP TouchPad, Squadron II showcases dynamic lighting and shading with enhanced motion blur visual effects to create a real-world gaming experience, which is made possible with the power of Qualcomm’s Adreno® 220 GPU.

Qualcomm’s embedded CPUs and GPUs are designed from the ground up to deliver unprecedented processing and 3D graphics performance with industry-leading efficiency to extend battery life. The 8×60 family, with the APQ8060 being the newest addition, is part of the third generation of the Snapdragon family and is the ultimate solution for the latest multi-tasking smartphones and tablets.  The third-generation includes: two asynchronous processor cores; an integrated Adreno 220 GPU with twice the processing power of its predecessor; support for up to a 16 Megapixel camera; and can capture and display HD 1080P stereoscopic video or 8 Megapixel stereoscopic still images to an autostereoscopic panel or a 3DTV (via HDMI), allowing consumers to capture high resolution video or stills and watch them without the need for special glasses.

The second generation Snapdragon single-core family of CPUs is already powering numerous smartphones that are commercially available today, including the recently launched Sharp Galapagos 003SH, a 3D entertainment smartphone.  The Galapagos 003SH is powered by the Snapdragon MSM8255™ processor, which provides the ability to capture and display pictures, as well as play movies, in stereoscopic 3D without the use of glasses.  The Galapagos 003SH also supports the Adreno 205 GPU for 3D gaming capability in addition to a 9.6 Megapixel camera and HD 720p video for playback and recording.
