MSM8225Q Qualcomm Snapdragon


The Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 MSM8225Q has an average performing CPU with a maximum clock speed of 1,400.00 MHz. It has 4 cores, resulting in extremely efficient multi-tasking when compared to dual core processors.

This processor is based on the Reduced Instruction Set Computing (RISC) design strategy enabling instructions to execute faster, as opposed to the Complex Instruction Set Computing (CISC) design strategy, which is generally slower at executing due to lengthy instructions.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 MSM8225Q has a specialized digital signal microprocessor that is used for the low-power operation of a device in applications that deal with analog signals such as audio, video, and mobile broadband signals. Each analog signal is converted into a digital signal that is then processed by the DSP at a lower latency (relative to the CPU running the same digital signal processing algorithm), thus improving performance.
