In 2015, when MediaTek launched the Helio X20, it was recognized for two reasons. First it introduced the world's first 10-core mobile chipset. Later he was praised by Tri-Cluster technology. In practice, this technology allows you to organize processor scores into three clusters instead of two. The advantage is the more efficient way to assign tasks that result in better performance and better battery life.
The tri-cluster technology arrives this year at Qualcomm & # 39; s
This Tri-Cluster technology was used later this year and more concretely by other manufacturers. These are examples of this, Samsung with its new Exynos 9820 and Huawei with its Kirin 980. Now new information has revealed that Qualcomm will also bet on this idea at the next Snapdragon 8150. We remind you that this chipset will be released next month.
The information starts with an image that is shared on Twitter by the leak detector Ice Universe (@UniverseIce). It thus reveals that the Snapdragon 8150 has 8 cores that are arranged in a 1 + 3 + 4 organization.
According to the image, the Snapdragon 8150 has 1 Kryo Gold Prime core with 512KB L2 cache that operates on 2.842GHz, 3 Kryo Gold cores with L2 cache of 256KB per core with a maximum frequency of 2.419GHz and 4 cores of Kryo Silver low power with 128 KB L2 cache at 1.786 GHz.
The Snapdragon 8150 is expected to be announced on December 4th.
Snapdragon 8150: a remarkable record in AnTuTu
In this test system, the new chipset managed to achieve 362,292 points. This seems to be common, especially for people who are not so used to values. However, it is not. It is that this result made with this chipset was the first Android processor to exceed the mark of 360,000 points. But what does this mean, especially when compared to the competition?
The comparison with the competition
To give some light on the subject, nothing better than the equations. The Huawei Mate 20, which uses the Kirin 980 chipset, achieved a score of 311,480 points. We recall that the highest score for a Snapdragon processor so far was 301,757 points. The device where this record was obtained is a Black Shark Helo from Xiaomi.
Looking at the results, it seems that the Snapdragon 8150 offers at least 16% more performance compared to the Kirin 980. The predecessor is 20% faster. The result of the new processor can, however, be even higher after all optimizations have been implemented by the manufacturers.
The Geekbench also has a say
The big competitor of AnTuTu, if you want to call it Geekbench. Like the first platform, it also performs various performance tests. Especially in the Geekbench the new chipset won 3.281 points in the single core tests and 11.023 in the multi-core. These results are higher than those obtained with Snapdragon 845 which reached 2,500 points in the single core test and 8,900 in the multi-core test.
Qualcomm's new high-end SoC will be produced with the 7nm FinFET manufacturing process from TSMC, resulting in a significant increase in performance and energy efficiency.
