Represented mobile platform Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 and 630
Qualcomm has unveiled two new mobile platforms — Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 and 630. In their description manufacturer identifies seven key areas that designers Snapdragon 660 and 630 paid special attention.
The first of them is the work with the camera. According to the manufacturer, the built-in image processor Qualcomm Spectra 160 provides high quality pictures with natural flesh-tints, the ability to shoot in low light, and support for two cameras (resolution up to 16 and 24 MP) and features such as optical zoom, blur effects, autofocus dual pixels and video stabilization.
The second point — processing of audio and video. In the model Snapdragon 660 it is assigned to the digital signal processor Qualcomm Hexagon 680 vector extensions (HVX). In Snapdragon 630 integrated digital signal processor Qualcomm Hexagon 642.
Part of the connections Snapdragon 660 and 630 can boast the presence of the Snapdragon X12 modem, supporting LTE FDD, LTE TDD, LTE Broadcast, WCDMA (DB-DC-HSDPA, DC-HSUPA), TD-SCDMA, CDMA 1x, EV-DO and GSM/EDGE. It works in conjunction with radio frequency receiver SDR660. Maximum download speed is 600 Mbps and the upload of 150 Mbit/s. Both models conform to the specifications of 5.0 Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11 ac Wave 2, and Snapdragon 660 also can operate in the mode of 2×2 MU-MIMO.
Configuration 660 includes a Snapdragon OCTA-core CPU Qualcomm Kryo 260, clocked at up to 2.2 GHz, Qualcomm Adreno GPU and 512. The Snapdragon platform 630 has received an eight-core CPU ARM Cortex-A53, clocked at up to 2.2 GHz, and GPU Qualcomm Adreno 508.
Both platforms support the technology quick charge Qualcomm Quick Charge 4, data protection technology Qualcomm Mobile Security and machine learning technology. The last point means that Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine SDK. This software supports a means of generating neural networks Caffe/Caffe2 and TensorFlow. Common features also include a two-channel controller designed for connection of up to 8 GB of RAM LPDDR4.
The new platform allow you to record and playback 4K video. The older model is designed for the connection of the integrated display resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels resolution and external resolution up to 4K. Younger in both cases is limited to a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
System on a chip that is part of both platforms, produced on 14-nanometer technology FinFET. 660 Snapdragon platform is already available to customers, the supply of Snapdragon 630 will begin before the end of the month.
