Snapdragon 810 and 808 64-bit chipsets unveiled by Qualcomm

In what appears to be an important announcement for the next year, Qualcomm has taken the veil off of its Snapdragon 810 and 808. These new chipsets are certain to make their way to the upcoming smart phones and mid range flagships and they are coming with some major improvements in the processor performance, 3D rendering and LTE. Both the chipsets feature a lot in commom; 64-bit processors and ARM Cortex A5x CPU cores and they have replaced the Qualcomm-designed Kraits which we usually see on their other developments. The exciting feature in both the chipsets feature the 4G LTE Cat. 6 modems which means that there will be maximum download speeds of 300MBps.

The Snapdragon 810 is coming to replace the 805 and will form the top of the chipset line. It comes with four Cortex-A57 and four Cortex-A53 processor cores which comes as replacements for the Cortex-A15 and A7 respectively. The Cortex-A57 is going to come with a 25-55% increase in performance and this will only increase the power consumption by a mere 20%. And this is nothing to worry about since the 20nm manufacturing process replacing the 28nm, will offset the increase in power consumption.

Now coming towards the Snapdragon 808, it uses a combination of A57/A53 but is actually a hexa-core processor and comes with two Cortex-A57 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores. The new cores bring extraordinary performance benefits and this is wnhy we are guessing that this one is as good as the current quad-A15 designs. The chipset also features a GPU which is the slots under the Adreno 420 found in the Snapdragon 805Adreno 418 and offers way more performance than the Adreno 330.
