Qualcomm has just released two New chipsets, Snapdragon 808 and Snapdragon 810. Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 is a 64-bit processor architecture that brings huge improvements in processor performance, 3D rendering and LTE-support. The New 810 64-bit use ARM Cortex A5x CPU cores instead of Qualcomm-designed Kraits, it also use the big.LITTLE architecture Quad and Hexa-core.


SD810 Specs

The Snapdragon 810 replaces the 805 as the top of the line chipset. It features Four Cortex-A57 and Four Cortex-A53 processor cores. Those are the Cortex-A15 and A7 replacements respectively, but the A57 should offer a 25-55% increase in performance at the cost of just 20% increase in power consumption. And the power consumption will probably actually be even as the 20% difference will be offset by the use of a 20nm manufacturing process, instead of 28nm.



In terms of GPU, the Snapdragon 810 has a brand new Adreno 430, which is advertised as 30% faster than the Adreno 420, which in turn is 40% faster than the Adreno 330 found in current Snapdragon 800/801 chipsets. The end result is something like an 80% performance increase over the current generation.


This chipset also has a hardware H265/HEVC encoder. The ISP uses 14-bit image processing, both of which can have tangible effects on camera image quality. The 810 has a 64-bit bus to LPDDR3-1600 RAM, that's 3,200MHz data rate and 25.6GB/s bandwidth.



As for the LTE, The two new chipset feature 4G LTE Cat. 6 modems, which offer whopping maximum download speeds of 300MBps. To do that it bonds up to three 20MHz data pipes, compared to Cat. 4 modems that use a single 20MHz channel.
