Hmm well, honestly speaking I was waiting/ hoping for the maximum effort, etc. (in other words, more) from Qualcomm for the SD845, considering the A11 Bionic, etc. But let's say that let's hope for the better, and that in real life it will be truly powerful, efficient and absolutely smooth even with the most graphics demanding games and everything else.
Ok, so better quality of service for calls, longer battery life and better camera/video mean nothing to you guys. Got it.
just a small update because they dont have comptetition . look at intel and how much they bumped specs with 8th gen and dropped prices of top models when amd introduced ryzen.
Here's the better question. Does it support DynamIQ? I'm freaking tired of big.LITTLE.
Crispypeddler, 07 Dec 2017the question is..can it win A11?Questions, can A11 achieved 1.2Gbps? Can A11 run other than iphone? Or ios? Can iphone user even use the full capability of the A11? Can A11 run windows 10?
Crispypeddler, 07 Dec 2017the question is..can it win A11?Why still got people compared to A11. Dump or Whats? Everybody knows A11 higher score only proven running on iOS not on Android OS
SD only can compared with Exynos, Mediatek & Kirin cause they are running on same OS Android.. cheerss..
""25% performance uplift"
Well at least they try to keep it real, instead of showing some "amazing" graphs with ""10X better!!!"" or ""300% faster"" ads like some other companies(hellooo Apple!)
People compare Snapdragon 8 series to Apple A series.
It is not a fair comparison. Why?
Because situations are different:
Qualcomm SoCs for any available OS in the market
Apple SoCs specialized for iOS.
Qualcomm is a Truck producer
Apple is a exotic car producer
Snapdragon 845 is like Volvo FH16 (750bhp)
A11 bionic is like Koenigsegg Agera RS (1341bhp)
Apple (Agera RS) is 1.788 times more powerful than Qualcomm (FH16).
Can Agera RS lift a Tank with a flatbed trailer?
The Answer is Absolute No!
Apple SoC is tailor cut SoC for 3 to five models of same platform.
Qualcomm SoC must have dynamic instructin sets to handle at least 500 models of 3 official and many unofficial platforms.
Finally, comparing raw power of two distinctly separated SoCs is neither safe nor valid comparison.
Snapdragon can be compared to Exynos, Kirin and Helio Series of MediaTek.
jrharbort, 07 Dec 2017Cortex A75 cores have ~48% increased performance over A73, and A55 has ~18% increased performa... moreNope A75 is 22~25% faster than A73 & 33% than A72. It's basically the same architecture as A73 but wider 3 ops per clock vs two ops per clock. It's the same as A72 regarding power consumption as A73 is also 3 ops per clock. It doesn't beat Apple's big cores (comes to some 70% of their performance) but then again you get 2x of them.
Cortex A75 cores have ~48% increased performance over A73, and A55 has ~18% increased performance over A53. All while using less power. Looks like the SD 845 will be a significant upgrade over the SD 835.
I'm really excited that essentially all the image processing that makes the Pixel cameras so good comes built into the SoC now. Flagship cameras of 2018 could potentially be on a whole new level!
Sonu4678, 07 Dec 2017Snapdragon 801 geekbench score - Single core - 1001 Mot... moreIt should be noted the older (pre-2016) and newer Geekbench scores aren't directly comparable, unless you made sure those scores were achieved on the same version of Geekbench.
Crispypeddler, 07 Dec 2017the question is..can it win A11?Yes it will. That has been the case for last couple of years.
Snapdragon 801 geekbench score -
Single core - 1001 Moto X (2014)
Multi core - 2530 Xperia Z3
Snapdragon 835 geekbench score -
Single core - 1904 Mi 6
Multi core - 6100 Mi 6
Ps. Yeah it sure looks like a meaningless upgrade to me.
Anonymous, 07 Dec 2017not yet. it will take a couple years to beat a11lol. i think another 5 years? thats a shame

Oh look, another meaningless upgrade noone asked for that you won't be able to tell apart from even a Snapdragon 801 from 2014. Gotta pump those numbers and sell new phones somehow. Snapdragon 845 is a higher number than 835, here's $1000.
