Qualcomm announces highest-end Snapdragon 810 and 808 processors
Press release; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 9 April 2014]

Qualcomm Technologies has introduced its next-generation mobile processors for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 tier, the Snapdragon 810 and 808 processors. The Snapdragon 810 and 808 processors are Qualcomm Technologies' highest performing platform to date, completing Qualcomm Technologies' lineup of 64-bit enabled, LTE-equipped chipsets for premium mobile computing devices.

Both the Snapdragon 810 and Snapdragon 808 processors integrate Qualcomm Technologies' fourth-generation Cat 6 LTE Advanced multimode modem together with support for the Qualcomm RF360 Front End Solution, and support 3x20MHz Carrier Aggregation, enabling speeds of up to 300 Mbps.

Both processors are designed in 20nm technology node with Cat 6 LTE, advanced multimedia features and 64-bit capability, all tightly integrated and optimized for low power consumption that does not sacrifice performance.

The Snapdragon 810 processor also supports native 4K Ultra HD interface and video, along with an upgraded camera suite using gyro-stabilization and 3D noise reduction for producing high quality 4K video at 30 frames per second and 1080p video at 120 frames per second.

The combined 14-bit dual image signal processors (ISPs) are capable of supporting 1.2GP/s throughput and image sensors up to 55-megapixel. Advanced imaging software helps enable advanced mobile camera features, including enhanced exposure, white balance and fast low light focus.

The combined 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A57 CPUs and Cortex-A53 CPUs are designed to enable an improved user experience based on the advanced technology feature set, while implementation of the new ARMv8-A ISA enables improved instruction set efficiency.

Designed for 4K displays, the new Qualcomm Adreno 430 graphics processing unit (GPU) provides support for OpenGL ES 3.1 plus hardware tessellation, geometry shaders and programmable blending. The Adreno 430 is designed to deliver up to 30% faster graphics performance and 100% faster GPGPU compute performance, while reducing power consumption by up to 20%, as compared to its predecessor, the Adreno 420 GPU. The Adreno 430 GPU also enables a new level of GPU security for secure composition and management of premium video and other multimedia.

The Snapdragon 810 processor introduces high speed LPDDR4 memory, features frame buffer compression and external 4K display support via HDMI1.4 and was the first mobile platform to implement Qualcomm VIVE 2-stream 802.11ac with multi-user MIMO, which makes Wi-Fi networks more efficient in order to maximize the performance of local connectivity for mobile devices.

The Snapdragon 810 also supports for Bluetooth 4.1, USB 3.0, NFC and the latest Qualcomm IZat location core for ubiquitous and accurate location services.

The Snapdragon 808 processor is designed for premium performance and integrates the same LTE-Advanced, RF360 and Wi-Fi connectivity as the Snapdragon 810 processor and includes 2K display support. Both chipsets are fully software compatible with the 64-bit ARMv8-A instruction set.

The Snapdragon 808 is designed for WQXGA (2,560x1,600) displays, the new Adreno 418 GPU provides support for OpenGL ES 3.1 plus hardware tessellation, geometry shaders, programmable blending. It is designed to support up to 20% faster graphics performance than its predecessor, the Adreno 330 GPU. The Adreno 418 GPU also enables a new level of GPU security for secure composition and management of premium video and other multimedia.

The Snapdragon 808 is configured with two ARM Cortex-A57 cores paired with a quad Cortex-A53 CPU, features 12-bit dual ISPs, LPDDR3 memory support and frame buffer compression and external 4K display support via HDMI1.4.
