Qualcomm unveils powerful Snapdragon 810 and 808 chipsets, that answer Apple's 64-bit push

0. phoneArena 07 Apr 2014, 07:36 posted on

Californian chip giant Qualcomm, whose silicon is in most mobile devices these days, just lifted the veil over its next-generation chipsets - the Snapdragon 808 and Snapdragon 810. The dust has hardly settled on the 801, which is in phones like the Galaxy S5 and Xperia Z2, and the 805, which will land in devices in the summer, and we are now learning what our phones and tablets will be capable in H1 of next year...

they were very late . Apple released 64 bit too early and they had to throw all their plans out of window and use directly cortex A57/A53 to bring something to market.

1H 2016 - is when we will see qualcomm's own design

You mean Note 5. The chip won't be ready until early 2015. S6 is your best bet.

Yawn. Intel is already 64 bit at 22nm. The coolest one I have seen is called the Teclast x98. $200 for a 9.7" "retina" 64 bit Android tablet running 4.4 powered by Intel shipping in a month.

By the time Qualcomm rolls around with this new chip, Intel will be at 14 nm with Broxton.

20nm is awesome !!!
But they seem like they are getting slower in GPU department .. Adreno 430 seems like they wont be able to beat even Tegra K1 which is due in 4-5 months

Comparing Gfx benchmark scores of tegra K1 with approx calculation of Adreno GPU

Tegra K1 - 62 FPs compared to

Adreno 330 - 28 FPs
Adreno 420 - 50 % faster than 330 - 42 Fps
Adreno 430 - 30 % faster than 420 - 54.6 FPS

CPU wise they should be fine..

And also power efficiency. 20nm vs 28nm = 20nm>28nm

Yeah but they will be nearly a year late... We could be seeing 16nm Finfet around the 810's release.

I don't think so, Qualcomm is the first to bring 28nm to ARM CPU and then the other chip makers followed them. Next year Qualcomm is the first to use 20nm, the other chip makers can only follow them, not exceed them.

Qualcomm is more like Intel in ARM world, they're the most popular and the one of the most advanced chip maker in the world.

Comparing qualcomm to intel is a bit of an overstatement. And 20nm is due this summer, I doubt qualcomm will be the first. Meanwhile Intel will be on 14nm and arm 16nm will be right around the corner. Qualcomm is not in a very good place right now.

This is the first time Qualcomm does not use their own CPU design on their top level chipset.

At least their first in many years. (The S1 was not custom)

Good Lord !
The best time to buy a Smartphone is now, there's no worth waiting as everytime you're gonna wait for the better, something of higher magnitude pops up from Qualcomm.
But still interested with what the LG G3 brings to the table with the 805.

They didn't even release the 805 and they already announced the 810 lol

But Intel is preparing to launch 14nm CPU soon, and I wonder how good it is.

Not Intel, buddy. But Nvidia.

nvidia is the worst. i honestly cant believe there are people still hyping up the k1. the k1 will never be in phones due to the power consumption issues and their horrible track record of providing driver updates(one x, x+, asus transformer series, ect..). that and the k1 was clocked to 3ghz in some of those benchmark tests

You are speaking on rumors and leaks, the cold hard facts describe a different story.

Nvidia's k1 Denver chip will be the best and most efficient chip on the market this summer.

48. Felix_Gatto (Posts: 911; Member since: 03 Jul 2013)


The cold hard fact is Nvidia is getting more unpopular year by year, since the big name like Samsung and HTC has dumped Nvidia.

Last year that's true. But I didn't know popularity was a metric of quality.

tegra note 7. btw HP also made TN7 called Slate 7 Extreme. among TN7 device from various partner it is the only device that did not called as TN7. now that device still on android 4.2 while other TN7 already updated to 4.4.2. so is that nvidia fault or HP that Slate 7 Extreme still not get 4.4.2 update?

Aww poor Nvidia and their overhyped SoC's, what now?

They seriously need to consider venturing to another business, No top-tier OEMs would want their overhyped TEGRAs
