z4ck, 24 May 2017Do you have a link for these informations ?http://www.anandtech.com/show/11201/qualcomm-snapdragon-835-performance-preview/2
Check out all the articles on the Snapdragon 835 on Anand tech. They are clearly A73 and A53 derivatives.
Novage, 23 May 2017The kirin 960 is still far Away. The g71mp8 scores over 50 000.No you wrong.Its only 32K score with 3D antutu.
Force Majeure, 22 May 2017The Exynos are already 16 or 14 nm right?14nm. HiSilicon and MediaTek are at 16nm. But only for the Exynos 78xx, 7420 and 8890. None are really into competeting with the SD660 (maybe the 7420 at a certain level maybe)
Somebody else noticed that the codename "Heart" was also seen on last week photos from the double camera nokia phone?
ProJames, 22 May 2017Nice. Now let's compare it to the equivalent Exynos chipset.The Exynos are already 16 or 14 nm right?
Mirkran, 22 May 2017No Exynos midrange can even come close to the SD660. It's bound to be the most powerful midran... moreMaybe now, but there should be a 79xx line for their own devices (possibly 10nm, I think) that will maybe even have M1 cores (Samsung's Kyro for Exynos 8890). I mean, that's logic.
ProJames, 22 May 2017Nice. Now let's compare it to the equivalent Exynos chipset.No Exynos midrange can even come close to the SD660. It's bound to be the most powerful midrange chipset in the market.
Obi Wan Kenobi, 22 May 2017More than the performance improvement (the SD 653 was capable enough), I am looking forward to... moreCan't wait for the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro 2017. It will have amazing battery life!
Here's the specification for the 2016 version with its less efficient SD652 Chipset:
Useless bench's, it doesn't measure the power efficiency, since 2015 until now all processors are overpowered.
ten, 22 May 2017Both in performance and price...Unless you go for xiaomi
Nice. Now let's compare it to the equivalent Exynos chipset.
Herodroid, 22 May 2017Well, probably just CPU, because GPU is uncomparrable to SD8xxAdreno 512 scored 30827 in 3d Antutu benchmark...and this number already close to huawei P10 kirin 960 gpu and also beat the shit of Galaxy Note 5 (2 y ears ago flagship)..
according to this score ...its already tell that Adreno 512 = 1.7x Adreno 510 ..(which mean good enough for 1080p panel playing decent games)
Xiaomi will sell this for only less than $180..but not samsung/ oppo/ sony..
But for geekbench 3D test..this wil be different story..because the on and off screen test will only tell the fps number....not overall picture of gpu capabilities..
More than the performance improvement (the SD 653 was capable enough), I am looking forward to the better efficiency of the 14 nm SD 660. I hope there will be a Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro (2017) with SD660 and 5000+ mAh battery. What a monster that will be!
"Can it beat or at least match the 625?"
It doesn't have to beat the 625 in anything but power efficiency, since the 653 was already faster than the 625, it only has to consume less power than the 625 to be a win-win for all situations. If 660 is a better battery performer than 625 it's will be the best mid-range chip around. (:
