, Qualcomm will soon show a new mobile processor model – Snapdragon 818.
Apparently, «nuclear race» manufacturers of mobile processors is not going to end. No sooner had the company MediaTek show their new chip with ten cores as Qualcomm proposed to his decision in this niche -topovy chipset Snapdragon 818.
Last week, there was a Chipset Information MediaTek MT6797, that most of the features left behind an older model mobile processor from Qualcomm – Snapdragon 810. Apparently, not in a position to make such a shame, Qualcomm’s quickly decided to show off his desyatiyadernym «dragon». But two years ago, the company insisted that mobile processors do not require more than four cores, and urged them to improve, rather than adding new ones.
Yet in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chip Together the ten cores: 4 low-frequency Cortex-A53 (1,2 GHz), 2 cores for medium loads Cortex-A53 (1,6 GHz), and the top 4 core Cortex-A72 (2 GHz). In this respect, compared with a competitor of MediaTek in the face MT6797 new «the Dragon» I got the same core with a lower clock speed, but passed him in that high-frequency cores had already 4.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 will receive a graphics accelerator Adreno 532 and RAM-type support LPDDR4 (which, incidentally, is not MediaTek MT6797) And LTE technologies ninth category (and here MediaTek has lagged behind and is limited to six categories possible).
While information on the new chip unofficial announcement date is not yet known. Possibly, before the processor on the market MediaTek would get a couple of aces from the sleeve.
