First details on Snapdragon 830 processor

Many CPU and SoC designers start working on a new chip even before a new generation gets released due to two reasons – intense competition in the field and shorter time periods for a new chip architecture to reach the market. This is the case with the upcoming Snapdragon 830 SoC too – long before the Snapdragon 820 hits the market, we know some details on the Snapdragon 830… which, if you ask us, is nothing bad.

Well, while the Snapdragon 820 will be built on a 14 nm process, the Snapdragon 830 will come to us built on a finer 10 nm process. Due to this fact the chip will offer tremendous power efficiency, which will prolong the battery life of devices that use it. As to the cores inside the 830 will likely have Qualcomm architecture and more precisely further refined Kryo cores – the ones that will debut in the 820.

The Snapdragon 820 may be manufactured by Samsung but this remains to be seen. The chip, however, won’t be out before late 2016 so do not expect it any time soon. This will give the Snapdragon 820 the chance to lead the pack, at least for a while.
