The generation of 7 nm chips on mobile began officially about a month ago, and it seems that after Apple andHuawei Qualcomm may also present its development for the new era very soon - under the model name Snapdragon 8150, Which may signal further development of the popular brand responsible for operating hundreds of millions Smartphones New every year.
Qualcomm has not yet provided any official information about the new chip, but its appearance in the Geekbench performance test confirms some early rumors about it, as well as providing an initial taste of the expected performance from its general processing core.
With an average score of about 3,200 points for a single core and 10,000 points in multi-core mode, even though the working frequency declared by the repository is modest 1.8GHz (Geekbench usually displays the lowest frequency among all available processing clusters) -Snapdragon 8150 will continue to include eight cores in total - which will be divided this time into three processing clusters.
Kryo Silver Quad-Core As we have seen in Snapdragon 845 (with higher potential for higher working frequencies thanks to the improved production process), a pair of Kryo Gold cores designed to cope with higher processing requirements and seemingly a pair of Kryo Gold Plus cores with potential Performence Especially in very short times when the maximum processing power is required in accordance with the Race-to-Sleep technique, which dictates completion of a task at maximum power and minimal time to return to stay as long as possible in an efficient and economical standby mode.
The results of the Snapdragon 8150 are sufficient to exceed most of the results of the The Kirin 980 Which we have encountered so far in multi-core mode (only a few hundred points), but not sufficient to overcome the single core results of the flagship chip from Huawei, nor on those of The current Exynos 9810 chips From Samsung. Compared to Apple's new A12 Bionic This is a lag of tens of percent in single core performance for the competitor Qualcomm - although the gap in multiple cores is smaller and stands at about 1,500 points (or about 15 percent) for the benefit of the iPhone maker.
The Snapdragon 8150 should include a modem that supports the first time in generation networks Mobile phones Thursday, including especially high-frequency band frequencies up to 60GHz, and may also include support for the 802.11ax standard, or Wi-Fi 6, the next generation wireless short-range communications with speeds up to 4 from 802.11ac. The biggest question, however, is the identity of the Adreno graphics core that will be part of the product - and whether it will be able to leap forward and set a new standard for technical capabilities in the mobile devices.
We hope to receive an official announcement on theSnapdragon 8150 already during the current month.
