Qualcomm doesn't want to lose on the investment they made in the graphic chip market. They will go on developing more in house chipsets rather than buying it from imagination technologies.

"t is (or at least, was) touted as best in class." they lied :) NVIDIA Tegra 2 didnt have a NEON SIMD unit in it so it could be the best in class at the time... as the saying goes no NEON no good

Phones are handling a lot of tasks at once which, in a simple minded analysis, suggests that the user exp. will be better with 4 cores. I notice delays on my dual core tegra, even though it is (or at least, was) touted as best in class.

What do you want a public firm to say or do in the public? They cannot say they are not worried until they wake up one morning to obsolescence.

There was an article on EE Times Europe sometime back written by a guy from ST Ericsson with an argument that Quad cores were definitely ahead of its time. Qualcomm expressing a similar thought would mean NVIDIA is definitely rushing their processors to the market. Qualcomm has the ability to design almost every piece of silicon in a handset and by far qualifies as the best system provider in this business, I am sure they can afford to lack in the GPU front and still have a lock on 30% of the smart phone market.

QC does sound a bit defensive about their graphics and seem to be trying to make up for it by quoting various factors ( 2 vs 4 cores, hotspots, life - when most of us change phones within 2 years ) that the average end customer may not care about and thus may not play a role in selecting the chip by a smart phone mfr.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
