11 August 2015 American Qualcomm will hold a press conference in Los Angeles, which will officially unveil their new flagship processor, the Snapdragon 820. It is part of the Zeroth platform, which was announced this year at MWC 2015.
Snapdragon 820 applies to the first 64-bit crystal authorship Qualcomm, in which the processing cores prepared by the vendor and not ARM Holdings. Kernel named Kryo, and they abandoned the conventional configuration big.LITTLE. The chip is built in a framework of FinFET transistors, and the process is farmed out 14-nanometer factories Samsung.
Snapdragon 820 MSM8996 asked four computational core Kryo that, as it might seem, oddly enough, in the face of current fashion on the abundance of nuclei. So, in the autumn will see the Communicator Elephone P9000 based on MediaTek chipset MT6797 Helio X20, including as many as 10 cores. Meanwhile, the race for cores — the easiest way in solving problems of productivity growth calculations. Processors Apple Ax remain relatively calm, being dual core, but speaking one of the most powerful on the market.
Core Qualcomm Kryo was made flexible: maximum clock frequency exhibited at 3.0 GHz, although they are, having a wide range of frequency scaling, skillfully regulate the balance between performance and power consumption. In other words, there is no necessity of forming two cluster groups, when one set of cores is responsible for handling complex issues, and the other given simple jobs.
If you believe the results of the GeekBench 3 benchmark, performance, Quad-core Snapdragon 820 is ahead for such an OCTA-core Exynos 7420 in the case of single-core computing. But it falls when it comes to multi-core. According to information in the Network, Snapdragon 820 will get a new graphics core Adreno 530, which will run at a frequency of 650 MHz and dual-channel memory controller LPDDR4.
Meanwhile, the manufacturers of mobile devices anxiously waiting for the appearance of Snapdragon 820: and if he would not the same “hot” like the Snapdragon 810.
