Snapdragon 665: sandwiched between 660 and 670
The core parameters of Xiaolong 665 are as follows:
Made with Samsung 11nm LPP process;
The CPU is a 4 x Kryo 260 (A73) + 4 x Kryo 260 (A53) construction with frequencies of 2.0 GHz and 1.8 GHz, respectively;
Support for Vulkan 1.1 with Adreno 610 GPU;
Hexagon 686 DSP;
Spectra 165 ISP, up to 48 megapixel camera, supports three shots;
Compared with the Snapdragon 660, the Snapdragon 665 has improved in process technology (14nm), GPU (Adreno 512), and ISP (Spectra 160). However, it is somewhat dwarfed by the Snapdragon 670, which uses a 10nm process, a Kryo 360 8-core CPU, an Adreno 615 GPU, and a Spectra 250 ISP.
What is intriguing is the release time of Xiaolong 665. Previously, Xiaolong 660 was released in May 2017, and in August 2018, Xiaolong 670 was released as an upgraded version of Xiaolong 660; in such a time rhythm, a low-profile version was suddenly inserted between the two. The role of 665 is a bit awkward, you can clearly feel that it is based onMobile phoneSemi-customized version of the manufacturer's requirements.
骁龙 730 & 骁龙 730G: aimed at the game market
In the middle of last year, Qualcomm released the first product of the 7 series, the Snapdragon 710. Subsequently, Qualcomm released the Snapdragon 712 at the beginning of 2019. The upgrade of the Snapdragon 710 is negligible – and the two processes Is almost completelyMilletThe rhythm of the new machine was used on the Xiaomi 8 SE and Xiaomi 9 SE respectively.
Therefore, according to this rhythm, the Xiaolong 730 is the true upgrade of the Xiaolong 710.
The configuration of the Snapdragon 730 is as follows:
First adopted the Samsung 8nm LPP process;
Built with 2 x Kryo 470(A76)+ 6 x Kryo 470 (A55), the frequencies are 2.2 GHz and 1.8 GHz, respectively, which is 35% better than the Snapdragon 710.
The GPU uses Adreno 618;
Integrated with the latest Heagon 688 DSP, including Qualcomm's tensor accelerator for machine learning;
Combined with Qualcomm's fourth-generation AI engine, AI performance is doubled;
CV computer vision acceleration is supported with the Spectra 350 ISP.
It can be seen that the upgrade of the Xiaolong 730 for the Xiaolong 710 is still very obvious, which is reflected in the process technology, CPU, ISP and DSP; it can be said that it is a real upgrade.
With the Snapdragon 730, Qualcomm also launched the Snapdragon 730G for gamers, of which G clearly represents Game. In order to satisfy gamers, the Snapdragon Elite Gaming is supported by the Snapdragon Elite Gaming and the enhanced Adreno 618 GPU. The graphics rendering speed is up to 15% compared to the Snapdragon 730. Not only that, but Qualcomm is also at the content level. The game content producer was optimized for the Snapdragon 730G.
Through the Xiaolong 730G, we saw Qualcomm's catering to the increasingly severe smartphone market.
Obviously, with the changes in the smartphone market, the segmentation of the Xiaolong series processors is getting higher and higher. The release of the Snapdragon 665 and the Snapdragon 730/730G means that Qualcomm has to make changes and cater to the changes in the smartphone market, but the progress in the corresponding technology is minimal.
After all, the Xiaolong 855 is the true flagship.
