Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 and 810 will bring 64Bit processing power to future mobile devices

Qualcomm has officially unveiled their new 64Bit mobile processors - the Snapdragon 808 and the 810 , The processors lead the new squadron of 64bit processors starting with the low end Snapdragon 410, 610 and 615 , The 808 is the lower spec'ed version of the two processors .The Snapdragon 808 uses 2 Cortex A57 cores and has 4 A53 cores making it a "Hexa-core" processor , The 808 has a new GPU called Adreno 418 , the Adreno 418 GPU puts it 30% ahead of the Adreno 330 found on the Snapdragon 800 but it slips under the Adreno 420 found on the Snapdragon 805 . The 808 has a 64-bit wide LPDDR3-933 interface ,giving it a 1,866MHz data rate and 15GB/s bandwidth , the Chip has a H265/HEVC decoder ISP but it can not encode it .The processor is only rated for a maximum resolution of 2560x1600 . The Snapdragon 808 is scheduled to be launched in the first half of 2015

The other chip launched today was the Snapdragon 810 , the number itself show us that this is the flagship processor of the two launched today , packing awesome specs , the 810 replaces the 805 as the top dog and it is armed to the teeth . Packing 4 A57 cortex cores and 4 A53 cores ,the 810 is Qualcomms's first "Octa" core processor to use Big.Little technology. The 20nm design offers 25-55% more performance than the current A15 type processors with only 20% more power consumption ,The Adreno 430 GPU found on the 810 offers about 80% more power than the Adreno 330 and it can also pump up two 4Kx2K displays (1 x 60Hz + 1 x 30Hz simultaneously .The 810 features a 64-bit wide LPDDR4-1600 interface (3200MHz data rate, 25.6GB/s memory bandwidth).H265/HEVC encoder and a 14-bit image processing unit .The Snapdragon 810 us expected to be launched sometime next year .

Both the Snapdragon 808 and the 810 come with 4G LTE cat 6 which has a download speed of 300m/bps , the layout features three 20MHz data pipes compared to the single 20MHz ones found in cat 4 . The speed however relies on the carrier and in the absence of 20Mhz channels , the system can shift to 20MHz + 5MHz + 5MHz to boost its speed.
