Qualcomm activity in Hawaii is expected to explain the new high-end processors news website TechCrunch earlier and seemed to “accidentally” pre-scheduled content on line, immediately followed by the shelf though, still was sharp-eyed WinFuture site captures Take the relevant content and confirm that the new high-end processor name that is expected to be announced is determined as Snapdragon 855. At the same time, the neural processing component (NPU) is integrated in the processor for the first time. In addition, the game application and camera shooting performance are especially enhanced.

The original report on the TechCrunch website shows that the Snapdragon 855 will be designed with a three-cluster architecture with operating clocks of 2.84GHz, 2.42GHz and 1.78GHz, respectively. The core configuration of “2+2+4”, that is, through two sets of large cores, two sets of medium cores, and four sets of small core configuration methods, it is expected that the details will still be confirmed after Qualcomm officially announced.

As for the first time the neural processing component (NPU) integrated in the processor, Qualcomm adopted the design for the first time. Obviously, in response to Apple, Huawei and Samsung , the neural processing components are integrated into the processor product to improve the computing performance. It also boosts performance by up to 3 times with similar designs.

However, even integrating the neural processing components in the Snapdragon 855 does not mean that the existing CPU, GPU, DSP and other components, with the Snapdragon NPE artificial intelligence computing engine will be eliminated, is expected to provide more meta-application design , let high-end processors have more specific performance to improve performance.

In addition to adding neural processing components, Qualcomm is also expected to enhance the rendering of GPU images through the addition of a new design called “Snapdragon Elite Gaming”. Perhaps similar to Huawei’s GPU Turbo design, the game software that requires GPU performance can be more useful. High display performance.

In addition, for the camera shooting performance part, Qualcomm may also add independent computing components to Google’s Pixel series models, thereby achieving Night Sight’s dark light shooting function, and also enhance the camera shooting effect.

The 7nm FinFET process from Samsung is not ready yet.In this case, it can be confirmed that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 processor will be built with TSMC’s 7nm FinFET process technology, and it is expected to integrate the Snapdragon X24 data chip, and will be able to match the Snapdragon X50’s 5G networking requirements, and then prepare with Samsung. LG, HTC, Motorola, Google, Sony, Xiaomi and other manufacturers cooperated to launch mobile phone products.
