Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 - all the details are outAt the Hawaii tech summit, which is still going on, Qualcomm has announced what has already be known - that its next flagship system-on-chip will be the Snapdragon 845. Now the company has listed all the details about the chipset on its website. The mobile platform is built after the 10 nm FinFET. The CPU employs eight Kryo 385 cores in a big.LITTLE architecture - 4x Cortex-A75 up to 2.8GHz and 4x Cortex-A55 up to 1.8GHz. Compared to the Snapdragon 835, they will provide up to 25% better performance. The graphics department is all-new and managed by an Adreno 630 GPU which provides up to 30% faster graphics and 30% better power efficiency. It will be able to support large resolution at 120Hz refresh rate. Qualcomm calls the new GPU a "Visual Processing Subsystem". It supports VR and AR with out-of-the-box eye tracking, hand tracking, and multiview rendering. A new AI platform is on board as well. The new Hexagon 685 DSP is 3x faster than the Hexagon 682 on the SD835. It works as an AI image co-processor and will support Android 8.1 Oreo's Neural Networks API. As long as it concerns communications, the new chipset packs a X20 modem which can provide up to 1200 Mbps downlink speeds. Bluetooth 5 is supported and has undergone some improvements that reduce by 50% the battery consumption of wireless earbuds. Snapdragon 845 will start shipping to smartphone manufacturers in the beginning of 2018. Xiaomi has already confirmed that its next year's flagship Xiaomi Mi 7 will be equipped with the SD845. However, Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ will be the first to have the new SoC on board.Source
