There are previews appeared on the Snapdragon 820-soc Qualcomm containing many benchmarks of a test device. The 820 outscores the Snapdragon 810 this year in many high-end phones is, but have to let go of many areas the Apple A9.

Especially in benchmarks leaning on performance per core scores A9 much better, while the 820 takes the lead in benchmarks that use the four Kryo processor cores in the 820, according to the results and analyzes both Anandtech and Tom’s Hardware have inserted.

The Adreno 530 GPU also takes the lead in some of the tests and show a considerable improvement compared with the Adreno 430 Snapdragon 810. Upon browser benchmarks allow the Apple A9 competitors with Android far behind. Qualcomm offering the explanation that Chrome is not yet optimized for its own Kryo cores.

The sites have done the benchmarks to a developing unit of Qualcomm itself, which features pale with a 6.2 “screen with a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels. Often the performance of such devices only indicative of what a final SOC devices, especially because Qualcomm later implements optimizations and software manufacturers themselves influences how does the soc.

The Snapdragon 820 is a quad-core with two cores Kryo on 2,1GHz with 1MB L2 cache and two cores at 1.5 GHz Kryo with 512KB L2 cache. The Snapdragon 810 has four Cortex A57- and four Cortex A53 cores. The soc comes from the factories of Samsung, which makes the 820 a 14nm FinFET-process.

The SOC will be available from next year in smartphones, presumably from the spring. Among others, the successors of the G4 LG, HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6 could potentially have the 820 on board. It is the first time that Qualcomm has a 64bit-soc with its own microarchitecture. The years yield socs with his own Krait processor cores, but switched to fast for 64-bit processors to be able to switch to ARM’s Cortex designs.

Qualcomm is not the only one who makes his own 64-bit design based on ARM architecture. Apple’s been doing that for several years, most recently with its Twister processors for the A9-soc. Samsung switches for his next Exynos 8890 also partly on a self-designed microarchitecture.
