As promised, Qualcomm officially unveiled the chip,ARM The next leader they work on. Or at least selected parts thereof
Last week, we received details from first leaps about the capabilities of chip The future Snapdragon 820 Qualcomm, Whose main task would be to fix everything that went wrong inSnapdragon The hot (conceptual, but sometimes practical) 810, and prove to the world that it is still the best in the field.
Now it turns out that Qualcomm has decided to expose us to their new masterpiece in parts and stages, and what has been revealed is quite consistent with what we have heard less formally before. So please familiarize yourself with the graphics core sample Adreno 530, and chip Image processing that meets the name Spectra.
The core of the Adreno 530 will, if you still believe in the chip developer from San Diego, satisfy Performence Which are higher in favor of 40 than those of the Adreno 430 core (which is very advanced in its own right)Snapdragon 810, thanks to an updated and improved interior architecture - and at the same time also offer a power consumption that is about 40 percent lower than that of the Adreno 430, mainly thanks to the transition to production in the process FinFET Of 14 nm, compared to a planar 20 nm process (although the identity of the process itself has not been officially announced - and so it is possible that in the end we will see here the corresponding 16 nm process from TSMC).
The new core will support all the latest devices in the mobile world, such as the OpenGL ES 3.1, the innovative Vulkan standard to be installed, the Renderscript standard, and the OpenCL 2.0 standard, Which is designed to provide video processing capabilities and significantly better image processing with minimal power consumption. In addition, the Company confirmed that chip The Snapdragon 820 will be the jumping-off point to the Ultra HD resolution world - and will support display resolution 4k As well as in the transmission of a picture 4k Wirelessly (probably at a maximum frame rate of 30 per second), as well as high quality image transmission 4k And at a rate of 60 frames per second,HDMI 2.0.
Alongside the Adreno 530 in Snapdragon 820, there will also be the latest Adreno 510 core that will be part of the Snapdragon 618 and Snapdragon 620 processors for the middle market - and in this case the company also announces the addition Performence Up to approximately 40 percent in power consumption of about 40 percent, compared to the fairly medium Adreno 405 core we saw inSnapdragon 615 current.
That's what we knew about theSnapdragon 820 to date - and it seems pretty good at what we actually expect
Now, we'll move on to the new image processing mechanism that got the name Spectra, and brings the Qualcomm Make a bombastic announcement about the quality of DSLR-quality photography that will be available on your next smartphone.
The new ISP will offer support for up to three sensors (i.e., dual array cameras and another sensor for the secondary camera, as we have seen on several smart devices), up to 25 megapixel resolution and very fast 30 תמונות In the second, including a promise of zero times for the aperture.
New algorithms for improving quality in the dark and increasing signal to noise ratio, support for all types of automatic focus technologies, support for programmatic zoom based on GPGPU processing of the graphics core, and more. The contemporaryity of the company.
It's a big doubt if we can actually get cameras Unlocked The quality of an average DSLR camera in the coming year, but it is reasonable to assume that we will continue to see the continuous and impressive improvement in ultra-high-end photography Mobile, And that's what we're finally interested in.
In the context of the current announcements, Qualcomm also confirmed that the chip-Snapdragon The first 820 will be available only during the first half of 2016 - so anyone hoping to see the next generation is already looking forward to the end of the current year.
It is reasonable to assume that in the near future, additional announcements will be heard from within Qualcomm, Which will reveal some details about the Kryo general processing core (or Hydra depending on who you ask), the digital signal processing mechanism, the new built-in modem and other advanced capabilities to be built into that tiny piece of silicon that will significantly affect the way the world Our smartphones will show in 2016.
