Various technology companies including Qualcomm could not pass up the carpet of Mobile World Congress (MWC) this year. Qualcomm is the most popular manufacturer of mobile processors in the industry and now realize the premiere of their latest architectures. These chips are called Snapdragon 610 and 615, and the most interesting part is that they are based on 64-bit technology. The first one has four cores, while the second model is focused on high-end smartphones and provides eight cores.
The chips are based on ARM Cortex-A53 architecture and are also complemented by a powerful Adreno 405 graphics processor. Expected to see the first devices with Snapdragon 610 and 615 on the market in the last quarter of the year.
The company also unveiled a more powerful version of the most popular chip called Snapdragon 801. According to official data from Qualcomm, it provides 14% faster speed, 25% faster graphics performance and 45% improvement in the work of camera sensors.
Like the Snapdragon 800 processor, the Snapdragon 801 processor includes integrated 4G LTE Cat 4 and 802.11ac Wi-Fi for seamless connectivity, a quad core Krait 400 CPU for advanced processing performance and an Adreno 330 GPU for premium graphics, all while maintaining industry-leading battery performance.
Qualcomm Technologies has boosted the performance of key processing engines in the Snapdragon 801 processor, including the CPU, GPU, DSP, camera sensor and memory components. As with all Snapdragon processors, Qualcomm Technologies continues to achieve superior processing performance through the unique and efficient integration of its custom-designed processing engines, including Qualcomm Technologies’ heterogeneous computing architecture.
The Snapdragon 801 enables breakthrough, low-power mobile user experiences by utilizing just the right processing engine or combination of processing engines for a given task.
The Snapdragon 801 processor is expected to be available in commercial devices this quarter.
