Qualcomm did not consider an increase in the number of cores the right decision

Announcement Snapdragon 820 was an interesting event. Qualcomm reported a processor that has all four cores. But what is even more interesting – it is to the company after the event.

Qualcomm did not consider an increase in the number of cores the right decision


The information shared SemiAccurate correspondent, Thomas Ryan, who was present at the roundtable Qualcomm. According to him, the company will seek to reduce the number of cores.

While other chip manufacturers, in particular, the company manufactures MediaTek chips with eight or ten cores, Qualcomm’s claim that a large number of cores – not the best way to get the best performance.

Paradoxically, Qualcomm’s also recognize that they are forced to release eight-core processors due to marketing reasons. The company Qualcomm believes that now consumers are misled by the false idea that the more cores the better.

Unfortunately, we do not have any research data that would confirm the views of Qualcomm. Instead, the company said only that marketing has won over reason, at least when it comes to choosing a processor.
