Qualcomm APQ8084 details leak out

Details leaked about Qualcomm's APQ8084, a new application processor slated to hit the market in 2004. This new processor reportedly has four Krait cores running at 2.3GHz, the same speed as the previous model, the APQ8074, and Adreno 420 graphics. Full details at BSN.
The APQ8074 is part of the Snapdragon 800 family of processors, however, it lacks an integrated Cat.4 LTE modem, so it is branded the APQ8074 instead of the MSM8974. Moving on to the APQ8084 (and likely subsequent MSM8984) we can see from the image that Qualcomm is planning to do the majority of their improvements outside of the CPU, leaving the cores' cache and clocks untouched. Since that is the case, they've opted to go for improved memory support, including 64-bit memory support. This will also probably finally spur increased interest in Qualcomm's ARM server aspirations, especially with the support of PCDDR3/3L.

In terms of wireless technology, the APQ8084 should feature a slight improvement from the standard Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. The APQ8084 looks to integrate an 802.11ac component into the SoC, which should finally make all of those fancy 802.11 routers useful. It will also improve wired connectivity by increasing the USB support from one USB 3.0 port on the 8074 to two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports. Clearly, a play to tablets and smart TVs.
