By Noel Randewich SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Qualcomm Inc said on Monday it will make smartphone chips with 64-bit features typically found in personal computers, following Apple Inc and opening the way to more efficient mobile gadgets. Qualcomm said its new Snapdragon 410 component will also include 4G cellphone connectivity technology and be aimed at the fast-growing Chinese market, where it should start appearing in low-cost smartphones in the second half of 2014. Along with 4G, 64-bit technology will become standard across Qualcomms products, said Michelle Leyden Li, a Qualcomm senior director in charge of marketing its Snapdragon line. Led by Apples iPhones, the smartphone industrys evolution toward 64-bit chips reduces the gap between low-power mobile processors and punchier chips used in laptops, desktop PCs and servers.
