Qualcomm announces ships that integrate their Scorpion CPU with ATI's OpenGL GPU
 
Qualcomm has announced new chips that integrate their proprietary Scorpion CPU (ala Cortex-A8) and ATI's OpenGL ES 2.0 GPU (which they now own). They're on TSMC's 45nm process, but unlike some of their other chips they do not integrate RF. That is, if the other ones did in the first place.

The exciting part of this is obviously that it's a big step in the direction of making superscalar CPUs and OpenGL ES 2.0 GPUs more mainstream in the handheld market, although these chips are not likely to be extremely cheap either given that the Scorpion CPU is quite expensive (larger than the Cortex-A8, performance between the A8 and the A9 apparently) and they also integrate things like 21 to 42Mbps HSPA+.
