An official event from Qualcomm in Hawaii managed to confuse representatives of the Techcrunch website, which broke the chipset embargoed information and revealed to us the Snapdragon 855 model several hours ahead of time - the same model we've known over the past few months under the Nile and Snapdragon 8150 code names, With aspirations to become the most popular flagship chip on the market in 2019 and a particularly important milestone in leapfrogging Mobile phones New and advanced than ever before.
The Snapdragon 855 will include a built-in Neural Processing Unit (NPU) engine similar to the ones already in place Dark And Huawei and will also be part of the leading Exynos 9820, accelerating artificial intelligence performance and machine learning or inference performance based on deep learning processing performed in a powerful remote unit - with Qualcomm declaring a 3x performance improvement over the NPU unit The built-in that made its debut in the chipsSnapdragon 710.
The new chip will be based as expected on the innovative manufacturing process of TSMC At 7 nm, and will offer us eight processing cores in an unusual arrangement - four cost-effective Kryo Silver cores that will operate at a maximum frequency of 1.78GHz, three larger and more advanced Kryo Gold cores that will reach a frequency of 2.42GHz and a single Kryo Gold Prime core that will be the most powerful. Up to 2.84GHz and will enjoy its own dedicated cached memory of 512KB. It will certainly be interesting to find out how much this array is designed to provide instantaneous maximum performance for various performance tests - and how effective it will be as part of a long-term effort as in gaming applications, for example.
The third highlight of the Snapdragon 855 will be a combination of a built-in X24 modem for second, third and fourth generation cellular networks - along with a separate X50 modem to provide the much-awaited support for fifth generation frequencies, for insane overall data transfer rates of over 4Gbps. Much more than anything chip Elsewhere in the smartphone world so far - though only at a time when we will begin to see a real commercial deployment of Networks Which support the expanded frequency range of the New Age.
