Some time ago, Qualcomm introduced a line of single-chip systems Snapdragon 700. Well presented… told that this will be. And added that its representatives will receive a bun from the 800th line. And in fact everything.
But finally, the first solution a new line is presented. This Snapdragon processor 710, and it really is kind of like the Snapdragon 845. So, we’ve got a OCTA core CPU with cores Kryo 360 running at 2.2 GHz and a GPU Adreno 616. Unfortunately, data on the number of execution units one or the other GPU Qualcomm never leads, so what about performance in this case, while we can only guess. However, it will clearly be sufficient for a modern mobile games. As for the processor there is one strange detail to me. All materials Qualcomm just says that there are eight cores Kryo 360, but on the advertising picture shows that there are two high-performance cores with 2.2 GHz and six energy-efficient 1.7 GHz. Apparently, under the Kryo 360 is not the specific model of the processor core, and generation.
In addition, the configuration includes a modem LTE Snapdragon X15 that Cat.15 with speeds up to 800 Mbit/s And has a vector processor 685 Hexagon, just like the Snapdragon 845. That is, for example, opportunities for work with AI will be the same as the flagship platform. The rest we can note a couple of processors image processing Spectra 250, support all possible communication standards that support screen resolution is QHD+, support HDR10, but the ability to shoot video in 4K is limited to 30 fps. And Yes, Snapdragon 710 will be produced at 10-nanometer process technology.
The first smartphones with the new platform should appear by the end of the quarter, that is, within a month. Rumors say that the first will Lenovo Z5, which is still very intriguing if you focus on the promises of the manufacturer.
