To be held in March MWC is expected to see a big wave powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 810 mobile phones, including Samsung, LG, Sony, including many manufacturers have determined that this will be equipped with 64-bit processors. A few days ago Qualcomm Snapdragon roadmap for the future have also been exposed, the more top Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 820 may be released in early 2015 to late 2016.
According to information on the roadmap, and Qualcomm will soon announce include Snapdragon 815,625 / 629,620 and 616, and top with 64 Snapdragon 820 processor.
Snapdragon 820 which is equipped with eight high-performance processing cores Taipan. Snapdragon 820 uses eight TS2 core, the new Adreno 530 GPU, support LPDDR4 memory, MDM9X55 LTE-A Cat.10 network, is expected to apply in the Samsung Note 5. The new eight-core flagship processor using Samsung / GlobalFoundries 14-nanometer manufacturing process of cooperation “FinFet” production process, improve the performance and energy consumption. In addition, the processor is also equipped with Adreno 530 GPU, supports faster DDR4 memory and Qualcomm more advanced MDM9X55 LTE-A Cat.10 modules.
Meanwhile, Qualcomm will bring a Snapdragon 815 chip, which uses big.LITTLE architecture consists of four core TS1 and TS2 four core components, in addition to GPU model Adreno 450, memory and network support and Snapdragon 820 consistent. It is a 20-nanometer manufacturing process, which means much lower cost than Snapdragon 820.
In the end product has three Snapdragon 620,625 and 629, the latter two are eight-core processor, 20 nm HKMG technology, built-in Adreno 418 GPU, support LPDDR4 memory and low-level network MDM9X45 LTE-A Cat.10 but the core of the model is not clear. Snapdragon 620 uses Qualcomm 64 Taipan architecture, quad-core, frequency between 2G-2.5GHz, support LPDDR3 memory, GPU model is consistent with the network support and 625,629.
Finally, there is a Snapdragon 616, consists of eight ARM Cortex A53 core component, clocked between 1.8GHz to 2.2Ghz, built-in Adreno 408 GPU, 28-nanometer process SMIC, support for LTE-A Cat.6 network.
Complete listing of all of the above chips will take some time, especially 14-nanometer manufacturing process Snapdragon 820, and fidelity to be verified, let’s take a look.
