It was like a legend, but nobody expected it to be confirmed before CES 2017. The new processor has already been leaked Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, which a short time after its official announcement was revealed by the 9to5Google site, which showed an image with all its characteristics.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 will undoubtedly be the processor of the year, as much as the Snapdragon 820 was during 2016 and especially at MWC 2016, but now the turn is for a successor that is, judging by the leak, an extremely powerful chip and capable of moving to the most important high-end mobiles that will appear in 2017.
Among the data revealed, it is found that the Snapdragon 835 chip will reduce its size from 14nm to 10nm, which means better design in the devices and the possibility of making it thinner phones, an aspect that matters too much to companies such as Samsung, Huawei and LG, in addition, its GPU will optimize its performance by 20 percent, so it is clear that they have prepared it to offer its full potential to virtual reality technology and IoT devices.
Energy efficiency: the key to the Snapdragon 835
Another aspect that is reaffirmed in this new filtration is the fact that the Snapdragon 835 has the capacity to optimize the energy performance of the mobile by up to 40 percent and its efficiency would increase 30 percent more, so that the sleep of the users of having a mobile for a week with a single charge is closer.
The Snapdragon 835 It is an eight-core chip clocked at 2.45GHz on four of its cores, while the remaining four will operate at 1.9GHz, concentrating 80 percent of the device’s activity on the last four and reserving the first for power issues and graphics.
The new Snapdragon 835 has support for 4K screens at 60fps according to the filtration, so mobiles with this type of panel will have a 25 percent better graphic performance.
Logically nothing of the filtered so far of the Snapdragon 835 It has been confirmed by its manufacturer Qualcomm, however it does not take long to know if everything said by 9to5Google is true and if it is, we would be in the presence of the most powerful processor created so far.
We also already know about the existence of its direct rival, we are talking about the Kirin 960 from Huawei, which the manufacturer assures that it is the fastest chip on the market. Soon we will have the war of the processors once all this is confirmed or not.
