Snapdragon 810 and Snapdragon 808 ARMv8-A SoCs announced by Qualcomm


Snapdragon 810 and Snapdragon 808

Qualcomm has announced yet another family of AArch64/ARMv8-A based SoCs; the Snapdragon 810 and Snapdragon 808, which will both feature numerous improvements in the GPU rendering department, image processing and LTE.

We previously quite a bunch of ARMv8-A SoCs from Qualcomm, notably the Snapdragon 410, 610 and 615 which were unfortunately not designed as top-notch chips. This time however, Qualcomm appears to be aiming at the high end segment with those two new SoCs with ARM big.LITTLE (GTS)

The Snapdragon 810 will replace the recently announced Snapdragon 805 as top-tier SoC, it will pack 8 cores, four of which are genetic ARM Cortex-A57 coupled with another four Cortex-A53 cores. Clock speeds were not revealed but we expect the A57 to tick around 2.5-2.8GHz and the A53 at around 1.7-2.0GHz, GPU-wise the SoC will feature the new Adreno 430 which will be 30% faster than the Adreno 420, which in turn is 40% faster than the Adreno 330 found in current Snapdragon 800/801 chips, essentially translating into a 80% increase over current-gen Qualcomm SoCs.
