Qualcomm (QCOM) and Nvidia (NVDA) are in the midst of a trash-talking battle that would make Intel and AMD proud. Nvidia boasts its Tegra 4i baseband/app processor will undercut Qualcomm's Snapdragon parts thanks to a smaller die size, and is showing off benchmarks for its Tegra 4 app processor that suggest it outperforms the Snapdragon 600 line. Qualcomm counters by arguing its Snapdragon 800 chips will beat the Tegra 4, and have scored over 50 design wins. The chipmaker also promises the Snapdragon 200 line will enable sub-$100 smartphones.
