Presented platform Qualcomm Snapdragon 632, 439 and 429, and they’re more interesting than it might seem

Qualcomm today introduced three new single-chip system Snapdragon 632, 439 and 429.

They came to replace the Snapdragon models 630, 435 and 425, respectively, while not all updates are equal in importance.

Let’s start with the youngest. Snapdragon 429 can be considered a replacement and Snapdragon 425 and Snapdragon 427, as they are very similar. The replacement came very curious, which is especially important given that this is a budget solution for low-end smartphones.

First, Snapdragon 429 will be on the 12-nanometer process technology, which means better autonomy for devices. By the way, Snapdragon 429 and 439 is generally the first 12-nanometer platform for the company, previously, it used process technology 14 nm or 10 nm.

Secondly, Snapdragon 429 got a good boost in frequency. The CPU itself has not changed: it’s all the same four Cortex-A53. But if in previous models the frequency was 1.4 GHz, the new — 1,95 GHz.

Thirdly, now GPU not Adreno 308 and Adreno 504. That is the new platform more powerful on the CPU and more on GPU and it eats less energy. It remains to add that the modem is there Snapdragon X6, and supports dual camera. Maximum screen resolution — HD+.

Proceed to Snapdragon 439. Here the story is slightly less interesting. The process has also changed from 28 nm to 12 nm, which will improve energy efficiency. CPU has not changed in General (eight cores Cortex-A53), but the frequency is also increased from 1.4 GHz to 1.95 GHz. But with GPU, no changes occurred. Can be increased frequency, but this does not indicate. That is, have an increase in processor performance, reducing energy consumption, but do not have a growth chart. Modem there are also Snapdragon X6, also adds support for dual cameras and a maximum screen resolution — Full HD+.

Well Snapdragon 632. The point is that Snapdragon 625/626/630 — in fact, one and the same. But Snapdragon 632, despite the slight change in the index, this is finally another solution, though not in all.

Yes, the process has not changed, but he is so good — 14 nm. But now there are eight cores Kryo 250 instead of Cortex-A53. They operate at 1.8 GHz. It is expected that the performance increase will be 40%.

The increase in GPU too. Here Adreno 506, as in the Snapdragon 625, Snapdragon although 630 is used Adreno 508. However, between them the only difference is the frequencies. Also does the modem Snapdragon X9, the same support for dual cameras, although this is purely a formality, and support screens up to Full HD+.

In total we can say that the most interesting novelty is probably the youngest Snapdragon 429. But for the most interesting all the same Snapdragon 632, as it will be more common. Probably.

  1. Could you elaborate? Your common sense should be accepted and normal for all even so I know more ideas that work with this With respect- thank you for your consideration |
