Qualcomm Technologies Inc has unveiled its next-generation flagship processor, the Snapdragon 845. Qualcomm technologies focuses on creating “innovative architectures for artificial intelligence” (AI) while at the same time delivering a more immersive user experience. Tech savvy consumers should expect a blast as the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform was designed just for them.
“The Snapdragon 845 is an innovation created to make lives better. It makes use of diverse wireless computer expertise to design a platform for immersive multimedia experiences including the creation of extended reality (XR) and on-device artificial intelligence (AI). The Snapdragon 845 can boast of a lot of processing upgrades which includes;
Qualcomm’s brand new architecture, the Spectra 280 image signal processor and Adreno 630 visual processing subsystem are the Snapdragon 845’s way of bringing superior photography, true-to-life cinematic video capture, and much more to flagship mobile devices”. With The Snapdragon 845 mobile platform, consumers can capture 64 × more high colour range information for video capture. The visual processing subsystem of the Adreno 630 will create extended reality, augmented, virtual and mixed reality. While the Snapdragon’s “Adreno foveation,” will increase extended reality, application performance, reduce power consumption, and improves visual quality.
Artificial intelligence
Device makers are finding AI to be a very dynamic subject and Qualcomm is delivering a 3x improvement in overall AI performance. Thereby, transforming your mobile device into the ultimate personal assistant. PIcture taking is more simplified, Virtual Reality games are more enhanced and voice interaction more natural. Qualcomm has extended the application of deep neural networks for inference workloads on the Snapdragon 835 to the Digital Signal Processor DSP to increase its diversity in the execution of neural networks on mobile devices.
Security is very important to protect valuable information.This is why the Snapdragon 845 has a secure processing unit. This unit adds to the existing security architectures by housing critical security information. This information includes application data, key management used in encryption of important information, user application or biometric data used for authentication. The secure processing unit (SPU) an isolated hardware subsystem is introduced to the Snapdragon 845 to add a vault-like characteristics to Qualcomm existing mobile securities.
Qualcomm created a number of different combinations which can allow up to 90 percent of the world’s LTE operators to get to gigabit speeds by expanding the number of configurations for licensed and unlicensed spectrum. The Snapdragon 845 utilizes Qualcomm Technologies’ second-generation Gigabit LTE solution – the Snapdragon X20 LTE modem. Its lightning-fast connection allows its users experience gigabit speeds while enjoying an impressive XR experience.
Qualcomm’s new architecture, Kyro 385 is built to improve battery life and performance. It is based on an ARM core, makes use of a processor with four 2.8GHz cores while rendering a 25 percent to 30 percent performance boost over the previous generation. The new Qualcomm Kryo 385 will see up to 25 percent performance uplift on gaming and application launch times, and a 30 percent power reduction for video capture as compared to the previous generation
Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.considers the Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform to be the next horizon of innovation. Shipping is expected to begin early 2018, but for now, Snapdragon 845 mobile platform is currently sampling to its customers. XR headsets, Smartphones, and always connected PCs will be powered by the Snapdragon 845.
