so what is qualcomm doing next ? ..... or did they sell their brand for samsung forever ...that crap about sd835 availability and shit was only created to make S8 have an advantage over every other phone and surly samsung did pay qualcomm some extra cash to make that happen.
Claudiu.Lucian, 20 Apr 201710nm should have been the new big thing... And we got 10% difference... This 10nm refresh will... moreThose gains come at the optimal v-f curve points. In real life, lithography makes little difference at the top end of power consumption.
The real pain in this generation was the weak A73 cores, which provided no performance benefit over the A72 cores. They pretty much neglected the 10nm process.
I do not like the Qualcomm brings two 8xx every year.
OEMs bring powerful devices like XZ Premium, S8, Mi6, Htc U , 4 months later they are no longer the most powerful.
If I owned a smartphone company, I'd only bring them at IFA.
