A few hours ago, Qualcomm has shared more details about the upcoming flagship Snapdragon 820. The application processor Qualcomm especially stuck attention to its productivity and efficiency. Also, the chip is reported to have made a calculation for use in thin smartphones.
Core inside the chipset designed for heterogeneous computing. This means that the chip will be able to combine different functional core of the whole system, including the GPU, CPU and DSP to achieve high productivity and efficiency at the same time.
Typically, the different cores are designed for specific tasks, but Qualcomm has said the use of heterogeneous compute the right solution for handling tasks.
Qualcomm is reportedly uses a new chipset for custom Kryo eight cores. Processor promoted by 14nm FinFET process technology that maximizes energy efficiency.
We also learned that the processor has been seen in the AnTuTu, typing 83774 points. This is pretty impressive, because even the Exynos 7420 is not crossed the mark of 70,000, however, the configuration shows that the test device has a display with a resolution of Full HD, so that if the resolution is increased up to 2K, we can see lower results.
Now that Qualcomm has announced details of the new processor, it remains to see this chip in a real device.
