The MSM8260 and MSM8660 create its first great impressions and now being waited to go on public. As for its high standard processing capabilities, it will sure give a stiff competition to other mobile processor.

How to Mount a New Processor

The Processor is the primary component of the computer which helps in carrying out every process of the computer. Even though there have been continuous changes in the computer processors models and features however the prime motto has revolved around the processing of instructions. Since the year 1960, processors are the ruling component of the computer without which the computer is just another box. The newer version of processors is dual core, quad core, core 2 duo.I3, I5 and others. With the rapid improvement of processors the need has raised to get adapted to the changes. Even though the installation is not very difficult and full of effort but it does require a lot of careful attempts so that you do not loose on the expensive elements of the motherboard. Every component placed on the motherboard has its significance and the malfunctioning of it may result into the processor not functioning. To install new processors the below steps could add on convenience:

  • Check information on motherboard as ever motherboard is different in configuration and socket.

Every motherboard has different configurations and different sockets. Therefore before even getting a processor, check the socket that is accepted by the motherboard so that your purchase is not a waste.

  • Open the latch of the computer ,power supply and heat sink

Every manufacturer follows different ways of accessing the internal components of the central processing unit. So either you could read through the manuals or could search through on line sites to access the process and open the latch of the processor. Remove the sink or the power supply above the processor to reach the processor. The heat sink must have a fan and one has to remove the fan as well.

  • Apply grease to the processor as recommended

To cover the top surface apply recommended amount of grease on the processor. The heat transfer grease is a must to be applied.

  • Insert the processor firmly and confirm the sittings

To insert the processor into the socket, it is very important to check on the pins. Make sure that the processor is firmly placed. The components above the processor must be successively added back in to their slots.

  • Reassemble the computer case

It is essential to have every component properly fit in. As any part not properly and firmly connected would create hassles later.

There are various connections that the processor and motherboard share and thus while handling the cables, be sure that the cables are fitting into the right ports. One has to go through the motherboard and processor manuals so that it does not result into a failure. There is eventually enormous type of processors. However there are few which should be kept away from installation. The most preferred ones are I5, I7.However before even you get an I7 processor read through the manuals as many motherboards do not support I7 .so be confirm before getting into any commitment.

ARM is offering 1.2GHz Snapdragon with its Dual Core CPU onslaught

The processors that are primarily considered to be lowest in Intel Mobile essentially are those that utilize the optimum architecture of Atom and can provide 0.65W that highly corresponds to 800 MHz Silver throne, Atom Z series. In the meantime, it is proved that processors of ARM are effectively found to be typically utilizing below half watt power consumption.

Are you as an interested user still wondering why ARM has stomped on the architecture of x86?  The natural benefit in holding certain advantages of power efficiency preferably in the segments of mobiles has inevitably enforced ARM to sit back and wonder whether they are compete in the most efficient segment that is the computing power sensitive notebooks and notebooks alone.

Exploring the two most optimum MSM’s of Qualcomm

Qualcomm, the giant worldwide who is considered to be one of the biggest organizations effectively holding licensees of ARM has grandly unveiled its two amazing Mobile Station Modem’s namely  MSM8260 and MSM8660 Snapdragon chipsets which are basically of the marvelous 3rd generation. These are undoubtedly availing the incomparable option of dual-core ARM CPUs clocked at up to an unbelievable level of 1.2 GHz.

The MSM8260 is highly found to be supporting HSPA+ which is a novel and fast accelerating 3.5G technology of the present era and that has effectively deployed not only by AT & T but also T-Mobile. However, the MSM 8660 has found to be supporting both; HSPA+ and the rival 1xEV-DO Rev. B tech, which is also a 3.5 technology that is utilized efficiently by the two topmost organizations namely Verizon and Sprint during their 4G transition period.

The support that is availed for such advantages standards greatly prevailed in technology clearly integrates the route of the making of high speed next generation devices popularly known as namely smart phones.

The most incorporated features of these incredible chipsets; MSM8260 and MSM8660

• 1 GPS

• GPU with 2D/3D acceleration engines optimally for Open GL ES 2.0 and Open VG 1.1

• 1080 p video encoding and decoding

• Dedicated audio engine that is unbelievably low powered

• Support for 24-bit WXGA that avails an irresistible 1280 x 800 pixel display

It is very important to be noted that the GPU is however sourced for the incredible AMD or ATI which is quite similar to the earlier chipsets. The prime example of this could be the one that is effectively used in Nexus One which avails a dedicated GPU that is on chip. Moreover, it is die base on the Z430 ATI or ADI design.

Preserving battery life

Recently Android platform has been quite busy with Snapdragon. So, it is evident that as a user you have not to be surprised if you detect a dual core Android Smartphone that is truly waiting for the greedy hands of users to invariably adorn it. Fortunately, technology is very advanced to take care of the second core tuning where it makes handsets to automatically switch off thus effectively preserving the life of the battery.
