Qualcomm: first device with the new Snapdragon 805 chipset to arrive in May
Qualcomm has revealed on the hush-hush for a Japanese publication that the first Snapdragon 805 device will arrive in May this year, leaving us to wonder what would it be. The schedule Qualcomm set for itself when it announced its newest chipset creation is for it to be in devices by the second half of the year, so a first device in May puts it right in sync with this deadline.

Snapdragon 805 has new Krait CPU cores, new graphics processor, and a bunch of other enhancements that are geared towards encoding, decoding and streaming 4K resolution, which seems will be all the rage this year. There are also image processing improvements for our phone cameras and a bunch of other enhancements you'll be dying to get into your phone or tablet, and, come spring, you'll be able to see its capabilities in the flesh with the mysterious device Qualcomm is referring to.

NOTHING touches the K1, not even the Cyclone A7. It's up to 3x faster than Cupertino's latest.

But I don't think that the K1 will ever touch smartphone class. Quad core A15 clocked at 2.5GHZ(sadly it's still at 28nm) with a crazy 192 CUDA cores is too hot for small device like smartphones. The Tegra K1 should be sealed in a tablet.

Well if the Oems use LiquidMetal or CaronFiber back, that will surely help. Or Sapphire or DragonTrail glass.

Its the revised A15r3 , witch bring some power improvements ; still at 2.5Ghz it wont be going to a phone. What they could do is a lower clocked version...

Who cares about the quad-core version? I'm interested in the dual-core Denver version that is 64-bit. And from the report I saw on anandtech, it seems like the gpu is one of the most power efficient.http://images.anandtech.com/doci/7622/Screen%20Shot%202014-01-06%20at%206.19.21%20AM.png

If by the end of the year you mean H2? Then yes, which isn't that long of a wait, only till around April- June (If they're using the business year). And it still doesn't mean I have to care about the A15 version.

the A15 will be clocked at 2.3Ghz max. that 2.5Ghz is for dual denver K1. also it depends on how device manufacturer want to integrate the SoC. if done right the K1 is more power efficient than snapdragon 800 and apple A7

My friends work at qualcomm and 64 bit will come out later this year on fall.. they are working around the clock.. He told me that apple is pushing them lol.. I'm pretty sure all companies are haha

What is the likelihood the Oppo Find 7 will come shipped with this SoC??

posted on 09 Jan 2014, 10:29

9. crazymonkey05 (Posts: 179; Member since: 20 Nov 2012)

it could be that oppo will ship with this chipset as its already got a 2k screen it makes sense to give it a little more power so it can stay up with the lower res. flagships. as 2k is going to be more demanding

Looking much forward to A57 Exynos6 Octocore or Quadcore A15s. Or Tegra5s.
They have really much more to offer than S805.

Snapdragon 805 is just another Krait rehash. Higher clock speed for higher benchmarks with little to no architectural improvement. Sure better graphics in the new Adreno would be nice in theory but I don't think too many people are finding the Adreno 330 to be lacking. Furthermore 64bit offerings will render this chipset to be less future proof than most techies would prefer.

It must be LG G3.

I'm sure this will be in htc 's new flagship, seeing as how it is due out in May.

Hey Samsung, what's the point of making a 64-bit in-house SoC if you can't massproduce and make it commercially compatible with most LTE markets? Not to mention opening the source on Exynos so that developers can comfortably make programs and optimize them for the chipset.

With that being said, the S5 better come no earlier than May. I'm not going to be satisfied with last year's continually aging Snapdragon 800. The 805 is better than nothing at least.

This puts Qualcomm almost a whole year behind Apple when it comes to 64-bit. The 805 is just a tweaked and improved variant of 2013's Snapdragon 800.

Sorry everyone but the s805 is a complete class above the tegra k1, it is 20nm unlike the 28nm for the k1, and it has more advanced features compared to the extremely limited k1, nvidia is definitely finished in the mobile race, the s805 is going to be followed in H2 of 2014 by the s810 which will completely smash the k1 in terms of raw power. Remember the k1 doesn't even have lte so whats the point, the k1 is a complete fail.

30. renz4 (Posts: 317; Member since: 10 Aug 2013)

isn't that S805 still based on 28nm? and don't talk about S810 yet. even latest Qcom press con doesn't mention anything new than S805.

The memory bandwidth of this chip is much better than that of TK1 (25Gb/s vs 17Gb/s ).
It is a "desktop class" memory speed
