7nm octa-core SoC with 1+1+6 configuration
While Qualcomm has only recently unveiled the Snapdragon 730 SoC, alleged specifications of the Snapdragon 735 have leaked online, showing rather interesting core configuration.
Series of products in 2020
Last week Qualcomm announced a Cloud AI 100 data accelerator targeting future AI loads in big data centers. Facebook and Microsoft seem to be interested as they presented at the Qualcomm AI events in San Francisco.
Huawei, Qualcomm, Apple
TSMC has announced that it is doing a test production of 5nm EUV chips, but real production starts in 2020. A long-term investigation leads us to believe that most chips launching in the latter part of this year or early next year will, unlike the UK, remain on 7nm.
The phone trends in 2019
There is a clear trend toward a whole uninterrupted screen for end users to enjoy on their phones and every year we are getting closer to that. The trend includes more cameras, slide, and pop-up, all helped by computation and AI.
855, 5G, ultrasonic sensor
The Galaxy S10 series and the Galaxy Fold are the next chapter in Samsung’s history and the company decided to use multiple Qualcomm products to power the S10, 10+ and the Galaxy S10 5G.
7Gbps supports 2G to 5G
2019 is the year of real 5G and companies like Qualcomm are enabling at least 20+ operators, 20 OEM building 5G partners and 30+ commercial 5G products to launch. The X50 was announced in 2016 and shipping to partners for a while and will enable the first wave of 5G devices. Snapdragon X55 is enabling the missing features and complementing the 5G offering.
From the house of Qualcomm
Next week will be a great leap forward in the 5G journey for the whole industry and we just wanted to set one thing straight. It turns out that Snapdragon 855 will be the only application processor SoC from Qualcomm for 5G phones and that 845 remains 4G only.
Close to half of the MSRP
The marketing guys at AMD did a nice job naming the card Radeon VII (Roman 7) as it is a 7nm, launching on February 7 and costing $699 but our investigation shows that 16GB HBM 2 comes at a hefty price.
Will use a different design similar to mobile parts
According to post-CES details showing up online, it appears that AMD will not use the same chiplet design for its next-gen APUs, keeping the chiplet design for its 2nd generation EPYC and 3rd generation Ryzen desktop CPUs.
