LG has announced that it has partnered up with Qualcomm for its next G-series smartphone. The successor of the LG Optimus G will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 chipset.

According to LG's announcement, the Snapdragon 800 should bring up to 75 percent better performance when compared to Snapdragon S4 Pro while Adreno 330 GPU should bring more than two times better performance for compute applications over the Adreno 320 GPU. In case you missed it earlier, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 chipset features quad-core Krait 400 CPU part paired up with the aformentioned Adrno 330 GPU.

Unfortunately, LG was not keen on revealing any other details regarding the Optimus G successor but hopefully more details will show up pretty soon. Qualcomm did promise to ship Snapdragon 800 SoCs in the first half of 2013 and an announcement in the last two weeks of this deadline are still playing it safe.

I want a freebie since my state and federal taxes gave LG millions for employees to populate a non functioning factory here in Michigan.

There is an ARMS RACE in these mobile devices....

From Anandtech....Excerpt:

************************************EXCERPT**************************************

The Great Equalizer

We've been tracking mobile GPU progress compared to entry level (and older desktop) PC GPUs now that we have cross-platform 3D benchmarks that run under both Android and Windows 8/RT. The data below has been updated to include Snapdragon 800/Adreno 330. Adreno 330 definitely moves up the list, getting dangerously close to Kabini at times. It's still not at Ivy Bridge levels of GPU performance yet, but keep in mind we're talking about a platform with a much lower TDP.

I don’t trust cross platform synthetics. IMO there just really is no comparison as to what tasks each are asked to do except at the most basic levels. I know they are showing relative performance but in reality Adreno 330 is not capable of running most PC games, especially modern ones, or image processing. It can handle video playback because it has specialized code that allows it.

R&D is going into mobile/low TDP, since the money is in the handheld mass market. Even gamers were left behind by Intel with Haswell in favor of the Ultrabook format.
