Qualcomm's next generation dual-core and quad-core Snapdragon family of smart mobile processors, including the MSM8960 with integrated 3G/LTE modem, is being designed to power devices running the next version of Windows. Specific functionality will support power efficiency modes and multitasking modes in Windows 8.


"Qualcomm and Microsoft have a long and productive history of collaboration focused on driving innovation forward, and we are pleased to be among the leaders of the next evolution of mobile computing," said Luis Pineda, senior vice president of product management, computing and consumer products at Qualcomm. "Our upcoming family of Snapdragon processors is intelligently integrated, optimized for mobile and built smarter, making it the ideal processor to address consumers' growing demands for new, innovative experiences and usage scenarios that we believe will be delivered by the next version of Windows."


The first processor in the Snapdragon family to power devices using the next version of Windows will be the MSM8960, which is sampling this month, followed by the quad-core Snapdragon APQ8064, which is anticipated to sample in early 2012.
