Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 dual-core mobile processor (APQ8060)

The APQ8060 applications processor is the third generation Snapdragon mobile processor by Qualcomm. This device includes the industry’s first asynchronous SMP dual-core CPU design, reports Chipworks. "A key device inside this chip is the HG11-VN530. We have seen this inside the Qualcomm MSM8660, so this die serves more than one product line. Between the APQ8060 and the MSM8660, we have seen this die cataloged in over 35 products including recently the Pantech P9070, Pantech P4100, and HP Tab HSTNH-129C".
