Qualcomm has provided more details about Snapdragon 820 processor featuring custom-designed 64-bit ARM Kryo cores, an Adreno 530 GPU and an Hexagan 680 DSP, with claims that it should be twice as fast and consume half the power of Snapdragon 810 processor with Cortex A57 and A53 cores. Based on the chart below, it will also be faster than Snapdragon 620 with Cortex A72 and A53 cores.
Qualcomm also introduced the Symphony System Manager that will make sure the CPU, GPU, DSP or ISP work together as best as possible in order to further improve performance and efficiency.
Snapdragon 820 should be found in devices in H1 2016, and not only in mobile devices, as the company expects the new processor to be used in automotive and embedded applications.
