Knock knock Merwyn. If you are reading this then you got answer for XIAOMI's R&D
28nm Is high profurmence? don't start no $HIT D:<
dude ALL chipset have that XP
it supposed to be a replacement for the SD625 and the SD625 is a 14nm power effective battery saving chipset
you are replacing it with a battery MONSTER
Well, one thing I got to say about it is good luck in the making of the chipset. To be honest, its predecessor chipset is only available in XIAOMI MI 5c, and I heard it have some connection problems with the PineCone Surge S1, hope they can fix that. The manufacturer process can be decreased to 12nm or 14nm though, to be a more serious competitor to the likes of SNAPDRAGON 820/SNAPDRAGON 821, EXYNOS 8890 or the KIRIN 960. It will definitely perform better than the Qualcomm one in terms of raw CPU performance, but will probably struggle more in the GPU raw performance, I guess it is really somewhere near the KIRIN 960. If that is the case, then this will be a very big performance jump from its predecessor
this makes phones good enough for 80% of tasks cheaper, than I'm all for it.
The Antutu benchmark graph above is for old Surge S1. It is on a par with Snapdragon 625. The new chip, Surge S2, is better chip than S1. It has 4*A-72 cortex @2.2 GHz and 4*A-53 @1.8 GHz. Then it is quite similar configuration with Qualcomm Snapdragon 660. So the CPU core performance should be on a par with SD660. The GPU graphic performance of Surge S2 is yet another matter, of course.
But, as the SD 660 chip was not so popular among world phone vendors, Surge S2 will not so popular, too, even at Xiaomi company inside. The old Surge S1 was used in just one model of Xiaomi phone(Mi 5c), and that phone model was not so popular. So we can not expect that Surge S2 will be adopted widely among new Xiaomi phone models.

If the can make an octa core with a quad ... moreThey might releasing a chipset with latest A75/A55/A35 CPU and G72 GPU on their S3, no hopes of that on a S2. We'll see enormous leap from the predecessor with Surge S2, though.
And I hope they don't overly use this chipset for many of their smartphones, like how many Huawei phones use the same Kirin 659 chipset.

They should revise the spec to update their design.
If the can make an octa core with a quad a55 + quad a35 for their lower end
and a quad a75 and a quad 35 for their higher end,
they would be ridiculously efficient.
