Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core 2.3 GHz or NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core A15 1.8GHz (depending on model).

Snapdragon is the platform for smartphones, tablet and smartbook devices created by mobile technology company Qualcomm. The 2.3 GHz/1.8 GHz represent a high amplitude wave, while the four processor cores are reflected in the ability of processes that can perform in a given time. It means that it makes four times more processes than a single-core processor, this is called MIPS (Million Instructions Per Second). It’s a breakthrough, even though there are already eight cores processors, this indicates that it’s a very powerful smartphone.
