The San Diego company has announced the new Snapdragon 636. Also, it is a SoC that is presented as a fascinating solution. As it has an eight-core Kryo 260 processor running at a maximum frequency of 1.6 GHz.
The chip is made in the process of 14 nm, which means that technologically it is a step behind the most advanced solutions of Qualcomm, that comes in the process of 10 nm. But the truth is that its specifications are not mournful for being a mid-range SoC.
Snapdragon 636 Applications
Its eight-core CPU is able to deliver excellent performance with the use of Qualcomm’s Kryo architecture. Also, while the Adreno 509 GPU can seamlessly move demanding 3D games. And supports 18: 9 displays with resolutions of 2,160 x 1,080 pixels.
Qualcomm itself has confirmed that the Snapdragon 636 offers a 40 percent gross performance improvement at the CPU level compared to the Snapdragon 630. In addition, that is a chip that mounts an eight-core processor. But based on the Cortex-A53 architecture. For its part, the GPU improves performance by 10% compared to the Adreno 508.
Special mention also deserves the modem that has integrated the signature of San Diego in this chip, since we have an X12 LTE solution capable of offering download speeds of up to 600 Mbps and up to 150 Mbps.
As we can see is an excellent solution that reduces the distance between high-end smartphones and mid-range smartphones, although we do not know when the first terminals to make use of this new silicon.
