Heads up readers.
Recent rumours are showing that the QSD 845 is going to be a decent upgrade (efficiency, performance, gpu) over the QSD 835.
In terms of a reference think of:
The QSD 800 succeeded the QSD 600, then had a minor overclock to the QSD 801.
And the QSD 800 having an okay upgrade to the QSD 805.
Where, the QSD 820 succeeded the QSD 805, also had a minor overclock to the QSD 821.
And the QSD 820 had a fairly okay upgrade to the QSD 835.
Well.... the new QSD 845 is shaping up to be the new platform, akin to a QSD 800 or QSD 820. It's like a proper leap, or succession path. As its looking to do away with the QSD 820/821/835 so it is promising a great upgrade. Hence, why we aren't getting a QSD 836 in late 2017 as it would be largely redundant. These feats come courtesy of Samsung's refined silicon wafers (think +10nm) and Qualcomm's upgraded microarchitecture (think Cortex A75). Definitely a better chip than Intel's Core M7 chips, and potentially competitive with a downclocked (4W) Intel's new 8th-gen Core i chipset.
I'm not sure how it competes with Apple's A11, I would wager it is still much slower since Apple has a much larger and expensive chip, and that it is practically irrelevant as they both run on very different platforms: iOS/Swift vs Android/JavaVM.
With these weird Qualcomm games maybe Huawei will start to sell it's Kirin.
I think Samsung is always scared to compete with other phone manufacturers
Samsung knows that Nokia is back in the game though not so Powerful as of now but still can affect its sales
With iPhone X around the corner Samsung is pretty scared to do anything forefront and the galaxy S8 didn't do so well as the S7 did
AnonD-456831, 10 Oct 2017And hopefully have the weaker version of the bunch. I pretty much remember Sony Xperia XZ Prem... moreSD of S8 is not weaker. The Samsung phones are always slower.
Even the exynos S8bis slower than other phones.
Honestly, who cares. It is not as if a few months earlier than others makes me want to go rush and get one just because it is early by a little bit. What a carry on. Current processors till then are more than adequate.
AnonD-297238, 10 Oct 2017Looks like QC is Samsung's personal bitch now. What the hell is wrong with the tech companies ... moreThere is already Hi-Silicon Kirin processors from Huawei
I would actually prefer everyone using Exynos, we need better battery life. Also support from devs wil be better since almost everyone will use it.
Kibaikasu, 10 Oct 2017I honestly don't see why Samsung even needs the Snapdragon processors. They have their own Exy... morePatents. It costs them so much to have the RIGHT to use their ''Shannon'' modems in their Exynos chipset in the US. Just the right, which is why Apple sued QC over ''abusive royalties''. So it saves them money to just buy some SD. But the sad thing is that since the Note7, they uses SDs in Can too. The S7x uses the excellent 8890 chips.
I honestly don't see why Samsung even needs the Snapdragon processors. They have their own Exynos processors which are just as good, if not better than Qualcomm's flagships. I would think it would make more sense from a cost point-of-view to just use Exynos and keep all components in-house. =\
And hopefully have the weaker version of the bunch. I pretty much remember Sony Xperia XZ Premium released less than 2 months after the S8 but was announced much earlier and it had a faster version of the SD 835. In fact, S8 is the only phone that has the slower version of the SD 835 soc unlike the XZ premium, Mi 6, nubia Z17, OnePlus 5, U11, Z2 Force etc. Needless to say, being first, even only for a few months, isn't always the best. Then again, fanboys will always buy them anyway albeit not knowing the worth of what they're paying for.
Looks like QC is Samsung's personal bitch now. What the hell is wrong with the tech companies nowadays? conspiracies all the time. Huawei and Xiaomi should start making their own SOCs unless intel or amd brings some powerful mobile CPU. Say goodbye to the QC we all used to love (custom roms aren't needed anymore either).
