Snapdragon 835 chipset carries an octa-core CPU, Adreno 540 GPU and Quick Charge 4.0

As expected, some more information about the Snapdragon 835 chipset was released today in Las Vegas. The new high-end SoC features an octa-core CPU using eight Kryo 280 CPU cores. Four will be running at a clock speed of 2.45GHz. Those are the performance cores you use when you need the A-Team. The remaining four cores are running at a clock speed of 1.9GHz for efficiency...

Like you do on a daily basis? Why don't you take your own advice? Settle down little boy and go back to playing with your toys.

Yeah, but with an A10, you're stuck using iOS, Android is far better, the Pixel has proven that.

I'm interested to see how the introduction of this chipset will bring forth some new devices that will utilize features like Microsoft Continuum. Microsoft has announced that full Windows 10 can run on these types of chipsets, beginning with the Snapdragon 835. I'm wondering if Google will respond with having phones be able to run ChromeOS (not hard to do) and if Apple would respond with having devices that could run Mac OS. It would be pretty revolutionary if you think about it. Companies who buy phones and laptops for their workers could now just buy a device that does it all in one. Students (especially those college students who can't afford to have multiple devices) could have their parents just buy them a phone and a monitor/keyboard to handle all of their day to day tasks. This may be the future of how we use smartphones/tablets over the next 10 years. As these chipsets become more powerful, there's less and less of a need for traditional laptops.

This looks weak! Exynos should be much improved over last year...

It looks weak? How can you reckon that? Why not just wait after it launches and ships in consumer handsets, before assumimg or concluding anything?

Qualcomm is going great. Obviously there will be criticism about its speed compared to Apple's chipsets(intel). But I would prefer such a versatile chip that works on a vast range of devcies from smart homes to smartphones, from internet of things to augmented reality and virtual reality.This is real improvement. This chip will be running full blown Windows 10. Yeah, Windows 10 on ARM. Aint that amazing? I used to be amazed by Apple's A series specially looking at their speed compared to Snapdragon's counterparts. But no more. I am much more, much much more impressed by Qualcomm. And I feel sorry for the people looking at speedtests or even performance tests between this and the Apple A series. Cause 835 is so much more than just speed.
