The generation of 7 nm chips on mobile began officially about a month ago, and it seems that after Apple andHuawei Qualcomm may also show us 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 this time will be divided into three processing clusters.
Four cost-effective Kryo Silver cores as we have already seen inSnapdragon 845 (with potential for higher working frequencies thanks to the improved production process), a pair of Kryo Gold cores aimed at dealing with higher processing requirements and ostensibly also a pair of Kryo Gold Plus cores with extremely high performance potential that will only be operated for very short times where maximum processing power is required. 'Race-to-Sleep' which dictates the completion of a task with maximum intensity and minimum time in order to return and stay as long as possible in an efficient and economical waiting 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 multi-core gap is smaller and stands at about 1,500 points (or about 15 percent) in favor of the iPhone maker.
The Snapdragon 8150 should include a modem that supports the first time in generation networks Mobile phones Fifth, including extremely high GMM frequencies up to 60GHz, and may also include support for the 802.11 ax standard, or Wi-Fi 6, which will be the next generation of short-range wireless communications with speeds up to 4 times higher than 802.11 ac. Other than that the biggest question mark is the identity of the graphic adreno core that will be part of the product - and whether it will be able to leap forward and set for us a whole new standard of technical capabilities in mobile devices.
We hope to receive an official announcement on theSnapdragon 8150 already during the current month.
