The Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Is A Market Killer
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor was a huge success upon its release, as it found its way into several flagship units. The company is now looking to further its involvement in the industry by releasing the new Snapdragon 835 chip. Moreover, an entirely new platform will be arriving with it.
As noted by Forbes, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835's new Mobile Platform solution will indicate the company's mastery of its silicon design know-how that is geared directly for mobile architecture. More importantly, however, the new system will be better than anything that has been released before it. To prove so, the company released the benchmarks of the chip.
The publication explained that the Snapdragon 835 has a new semi-custom ARM Cortex design, which follows the more standard big.Little design practice. This means four lower power ARM cores that clock 1.8GHz and four high-performance cores that clock at 2.45GHz. Qualcomm has claimed this design will reap significant increases in power efficiency when compared to the last generation.
The chip is 35 percent smaller in terms of size, but reportedly consumes about 25 percent less power in total. The drain on the battery is yet to be seen, but Qualcomm is nevertheless already making rather big claims as is. In addition, the Snapdragon 835 will reportedly surpass Apple's A10 fusion processor in a handful of gaming tests.
The new chip apparently offers up to 25 percent better graphics in virtual reality. In comparison with the A10, Qualcomm's powerhouse benchmarked better numbers in a majority of the tests. The publication gave particular praise because the results were garnered using a prototype handheld and not a retail shipping product.
These are all good numbers, particularly considering how much more Qualcomm is promising over the power of the Snapdragon 820. As AnandTech has reported, the previous generation was already installed in most of 2016's best, most powerful and highest tiered handhelds. The Snapdragon 835 has a lot to live up to.
