Just about everything and anything comes with a processor these days, and one of the more important aspects of a processor, apart from its clock speed, of course, would be the efficiency of the device. Quality processors can be pretty difficult to be found in a tiny form factor, but this form factor has proven itself to be rather popular in recent years, thanks to the explosion of smartphones across the world. Qualcomm’s upcoming flagship processor has been touted to be the Snapdragon 810, although it does not look as though it will be ready to hit the market until some time in 2015.
It seems that there has been an AnTuTu benchmark which carried the performance details of this new processor that has not arrived in the market. The 64-bit, octa-core Snapdragon 810 is said to be accompanied by an Adreno 430 GPU, in addition to a couple of Cortex-A57 and Cortex-A53 cores (of a quartet each), respectively. Just how much better is it in comparison to the Snapdragon 805? We are looking at up to 50% additional speed without sipping more power.
As for the device that was tested which ran on the Snapdragon 810, it was a prototype with a 6.2” display at 1600 x 2560 pixel resolution, 4GB RAM and Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
