Previously, there were lots of rumors about Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 overheating and driver problems, and this problem causes alleged delay of High-End Smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S6, LG G4 and other big wave of smartphones, but Qualcomm just denied the existence of the such problems and even Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 is in testing pilot phase with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Prior to Qualcomm for developers introduced Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 MDP tablet and mobile phone, now major media giants has also received Snapdragon 810 tablet and mobile phone, this processor will show its performance in 2015-flagship smartphones but how essential it is?
Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 Experience: 8-core 64-bit Processor for 2015’s Flagships
Let’s review the basic specifications of Snapdragon 810 810, which uses an 8-core 64-bit ARM architecture, the use of four Cortex-A57 + 4 and Coretx-A53 core big. LITTLE architecture consisting of LP-DDR4 memory support, integrated Adreno 430 GPU, 14-bit dual ISP engine that supports full-LTE network and also has been upgraded from the original 6/7 to Cat Cat 9, a downlink rate increase from 300Mbps to 450Mbps.
Snapdragon although not go with the high stuff as usual with their own development, but directly apply the ARM architecture in the public version of the design. The time they break everything as Snapdragon 810 is the first to use 20nm process node, coupled with their own integrated Qualcomm Adreno GPU core, LTE baseband, ISP graphics processing engines, Snapdragon 810 is the most powerful from all aspects but it cannot be Overclocked.
Now CNET, Engadget , Arstechnica and other sites have received Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 tablets and mobile phones, but these media usually do not write a detailed performance evaluation, only gives their own experience and evaluation. All three sites have praised the powerful Snapdragon processor 810, which is not only equipped with 8-core 64-bit processor, but also with powerful integrated Adreno 430 GPU.
With the current Nexus 6, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and other mobile phone users Snapdragon 810 compared to the integrated Adreno 420 GPU, Adreno 430 also supports OpenGL ES 3.1, DX11.2, OpenCL 1.2 specification, etc., and supports 3840×2160 resolution output, but Adreno 430 GPU to enhance performance by 30 percent and power consumption by 20%.
And now not popular 2K resolution, the Snapdragon 810 also emphasis on 4K, 4K only supports 3840×2160 resolution output this also supports H.264 / H.265 encoded 4K video recording and playback. So users can use it as a 4K source, output 4K content on other screens. (4K video playback is no problem, but over concern is about gaming on 4k).
In addition, Snapdragon 810 also, supports 14bit dual ISP image processing engine, frequency up 800Mhz, so the support 55-Mega pixel camera, we can say that the new generation of mobile phone camera capacity will be stronger.
In short, the performance Snapdragon 810 processor upgrade to the next level and it is the one of the first chips using 20nm process (although progress to be behind Apple), so the power consumption, the heat control to be expected, this processor is obviously will be the ingredient of one of the major manufacturers of essential flagship phone in 2015.
