Snapdragon 820 will Change Smartphones in 2016

Snapdragon 820

Qualcomm’s New Snapdragon 820 – Fastest Performance Chip


Qualcommhas been leading the smartphone processor manufacturer for several years and the company has played an important role in altering the fa├žade of the industry. Recently Qualcomm had launched the new Snapdragon 820 and its high end smartphone processor is evidently the fastest performance chip ever developed. After a full year of instabilities for the company, this new sort of processor has all new designs in delivering the performance leap which Android enthusiast would prefer.

Though the Snapdragon 810 was initially capable, the 820 have benefits which could ease some of the anxieties that any enthusiast has. Foremost is that the chip has a new custom architecture and abandons the `off-the-shelf’ cores of the 810. Moreover, it has adequate power saving and task off-loading features which Qualcomm tends to extend battery life as well as performance.

The processor of Qualcomm’s new 64-bit Kryo cores on-board, which is a custom-design is said to be holistically integrated with the rest of the SoC in order to give the best in heterogeneous computing.Besides this the Kryo cores tends to reach clock-speeds of 2.2 GHz and the CPU offers twice the peak performance of the Snapdragon 810 with twice the battery efficiency also, according to Qualcomm.

Hexagon Digital Signal Processor – Offload Tasks/Less Power


The latest CPU is being developed based on the latest 14nm FinFET process and should prove to be advantageous over larger process size such as those in most of the 2015 flagship chipsets. Qualcomm is ensuring that the Snapdragon 820 is capable of handling tasks professionally through intelligent task distribution and their new Symphony System Manager certifies that you can run the right task on the appropriate processor.

 However, though some SoCs limit such system management to only CPU cores. Symphony could handle the complete SoC in different alignments to locate the competent variation of load allocation. According to Qualcomm, specialized cores are selected to get the task done as fast as possible. With their updated Hexagon 680 DSP in place, together with battery savings it could be more encouraging that earlier. The Hexagon Digital Signal Processor tends to offload tasks which could be done quickly on this processing unit, consuming less power than the CPU.

New Image Technology – Enhanced Adaptive Brightness/Reduced Noise


It will be assigned with sensor processing tasks and as a low power island just like the other devices provided earlier. With a sensor assisted processor together with their new image processing technology it would bring about efficiency in the field of smartphone practise which could be quite substantial drainers. Regarding the image technology, the Snapdragon 820 claims the capability of intelligently categorizing objects in images, or images in various classifications based on the context.

Its Spectra Image Sensor Processor – 14-bit dual-ISP, attached with Snapdragon Scene Detect, tends to achieve deep learning technology in improvement as it learns with more data. Qualcomm states that their technology could provide enhanced adaptive brightness together with reduced noise.

Besides this, one may also perceive drops in HDR as well as motion artifacts. Overall, the Snapdragon 820 seems to be a fanciful chip and is claimed that it passes the thermal requirements from OEMs. As they have smartly called their new design `Kyro’ – wherein `Cyro’ is defined as involving cold, they not only need to live up to their promises but also to the name.
