IT Home August 18th In June of this year, Qualcomm announced the launch of the Snapdragon 850 chip, which is the successor of the Snapdragon 835, and is specifically designed for Windows 10 ARM notebooks, compared to Snapdragon The 845 is even stronger. Previously, the Snapdragon 835 notebook was still somewhat stretched in performance, and Qualcomm promised to solve this problem through the Snapdragon 850.
At the beginning of the announcement, compared with the Snapdragon 835, Qualcomm promised that the CPU performance of the Snapdragon 850 will increase by 30%, and then the initial running test showed that the performance improvement of the Snapdragon 850 did not meet expectations. According to the LENOVO 81JL equipment equipped with the Snapdragon 850, the single-core benchmark score was 2263 and the multi-core score was 6947. Compared to the ASUS NovaGo equipped with the Snapdragon 835, the Snapdragon 850 equipment increased by 23% and 7.3% respectively.
If this is the end result, Microsoft and Qualcomm still face a lot of challenges in the next generation of Windows 10 ARM notebooks, and their performance benchmarks will usually drop after the device is officially released.
According to previous reports, the Windows 10 ARM notebook with the Snapdragon 850 processor is expected to be available later this year, and Samsung will launch the first devices.
Before Qualcomm officially introduced, the Snapdragon 850 mobile computing platform, its performance increased by 30%, battery life increased by 20%, 4G LTE speed increased by 20%.
The Snapdragon 850 is based primarily on the Snapdragon 845 mobile platform, which is mostly used for Android flagship phones. However, the Opteron 850 is available for Windows 10 PCs. It contains the same eight 10nm Kryo 385 cores, but their main frequency can be as high as 2.96GHz instead of 2.8GHz. The Snapdragon 850 also includes the Adreno 630 GPU, which provides 4K UHD video playback, HEVC video encoding up to 1080p/120fps, and more.
Like the Snapdragon 845, the Snapdragon 850 supports the Snapdragon X20 4G LTE modem, which means it supports downlink speeds of up to 1.2 Gbps. Previously, the Snapdragon X16 in the Snapdragon 835 supported 1 Gbps. Qualcomm said that with 10MHz licensed spectrum, 90% of operators can provide Gigabit LTE.
In terms of Wi-Fi, the Snapdragon 850 chipset supports the 802.11ad protocol with MU-MIMO, integrates 802.11ac 2×2, and supports the 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 60 GHz bands. The Snapdragon 850 also includes the Spectra 280 image signal processor. Oddly enough, it only supports 4K/30fps video recording, while the Opteron 845’s Spectra 280 supports 4K/60fps video recording. Return to World IT News to see more
