Anonymous, 30 Aug 2017We will see it in 2019. Many OEM's are still stuck in SD625 and yet to embrace 630/660. In 2019 Snapdragon 690 SoC CPU's and GPU's may in fact be available (or an equivalent title). The Snapdragon 660 could still be utilized in 2019, most likely by companies looking to bring quality budget options to market.
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2017How about going for a little older flagship? They usually have much higher quality than price-... more I appreciate your decided humble comments and suggestions. Personally, when it comes to tech items, I'm a so called "bleeding edge" type. Frugality is a good night however.
Yeah... call me when more than a couple of chinese Companies use them!
Zero, 30 Aug 2017Intel had Broxton but they quit.
Mediatek seems that they quit too... Helio P23 and P30 are... moreMediatek quit too? hmm
MediaTek has high-end Helio-X30 (found in Meizu Pro 7 Plus) and it is 10nm..
P23 and P30 as you said is a midrange..you just dont have the right to say it is absolute disgrace that you dont even know the availability of Helio-X30.
Peter-B, 30 Aug 2017Indeed. So if this is getting the 10nm LPP treatment, how will the Snapdragon 845 and Exynos 9... moreEasily.
Low-end: (QSD 625) 14nm... 4x Cortex A53
Mid-range: (QSD 660) 14nm... 4x Cortex A53-4x Cortex A73 (cache and frequency limited)
High-end: (QSD 840) 10nm.... 4x Cortex A53-4x Cortex A73
Low-end: (QSD 630) 14nm... 8x Cortex A53
Mid-range: (QSD 670) 10nm... 2x Cortex A55-4x Cortex A55-2x Cortex A75
High-end: (QSD 850) 7nm... 4x Cortex A55-4x Cortex A75
....while the Low-end QSD chips offer all the goodies of a decent DAC, Radios, LTE etc etc there's a sizeable CPU performance between the Low-end and the Mid-Range
....the mid-range chips offer great features and excellent CPU performance, it's only hampered by a moderate GPU
....while the High-end QSD chips can seem threatened by the CPU performance of the Mid-range chips, they have much better GPU's, and have the best components SoC-wise
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2017Those are still great and a big upgrade from the senseless SD62X/63X series. I mean, low power... moreDon't care about cpu. I care about gpu. It is always 3 years old in terms of performance. Sucks. And 400 euros??? Meh...
Sidd847, 30 Aug 2017Hoping Moto Z³ Play(just in time to replace my ageing Z¹ play) gets this chipset and... moreHow about going for a little older flagship? They usually have much higher quality than price-wise mid range counterparts and often even better performance.
Apolodor, 30 Aug 2017Too bad A 2018 will get SD 650 or 660. Sucks.Those are still great and a big upgrade from the senseless SD62X/63X series. I mean, low power cores are made to work together with high performance cores, and not to be the only cores of a CPU.
"This new processor will use ARMÂ’s DynamIQ tech, which features on the Cortex-A75 and A55. This is the successor to big.LITTLE and is much more flexible." Yeeeey. this is the best part!
We will see it in 2019. Many OEM's are still stuck in SD625 and yet to embrace 630/660.
dude420, 30 Aug 2017Too bad LG will still put snapdragon 435 on their "midrange" device, 'cough' cough' LG Q6 Nokia still uses SD430 and quad core mediatek processor in their midrange phone
Hoping Moto Z³ Play(just in time to replace my ageing Z¹ play) gets this chipset and just maybe, maybe they don't mess with the battery else have to hope for a Nokia 6 reborn edition with this chipset!
EverythingApple, 30 Aug 2017Do u think it's gonna beat A8 chip performance wise?As history shows nope not even close.Keep in mind I'm not an Apple fanboy
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2017650 is 15% weaker than 810. 660 is 10% stronger than 810. CPU wise 650 is better than 808, 652 is better than 810.
Why you should get excited?
1. Because this features dynamIQ tech, which isn't backwards compatible with A72/73 or A53, that means this is going to be based on A75 and A55!
2. All 8 cores will probably be on same cluster, that implies better performance and battery life!!
rafi62, 30 Aug 2017huhh...Do u think it's gonna beat A8 chip performance wise?
