Qualcomm releases Snapdragon 710 processor for mid-range devices
Qualcomm has officially announced the launch of the new Opteron series of mobile device processors. This processor is the first processor of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 700 series. The launch edition is mainly targeted at the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor introduced for mid-range mobile devices. The new model naturally has a significant increase in performance over older processors. As a comparison, the Snapdragon 660 processor, which is a front-to-center mobile device, has improved over 15% in both performance and power consumption.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 platform transforms mobile devices into customized experiences for cameras and voice, powered by multi-core artificial intelligence dedicated engines. Compared with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 platform, the overall performance of artificial intelligence applications has been doubled, and the use of artificial intelligence technology has continued to optimize audio and video content.
Through heterogeneous computing, the Qualcomm Hexagon DSP, the Qualcomm Adreno vision processing subsystem, and the Qualcomm Kryo processor work together to improve performance.
The new Qualcomm Spectra 250 ISP supports autofocus and smooth zoom while shooting to maintain image stabilization and help users take better pictures. The Qualcomm Spectra 250 ISP is designed to provide excellent super-resolution and visual effects for 32 million single cameras or 20 million pixels dual cameras.
In addition, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 artificial intelligence engine supports the camera with a deep portrait mode and face recognition with active sensing and face unlocking.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor supports playback of 4K HDR video content, which is also one of the first processors to support 4K HDR in addition to the Qualcomm 800 series. The new 4K HDR playback feature gives users greater brightness and a wider color gamut while supporting the use of live 4K HDR for visual enhancements.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 is equipped with the new Snapdragon X15 LTE modem, and the X15 LTE modem supports download speeds of up to 800Mbps. The modem also brings the most advanced 4G LTE technology to the 700 series, including 4×4 MIMO aggregate carrier technology to increase the speed of weak signals.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor is designed to provide better power management efficiency and longer endurance, enhancing the overall user experience. Thanks to the enhanced architecture of the Adreno 616 vision processing subsystem, the new processor can consume up to 40% more power in games and 4K HDR playback.
At the same time, the overall power consumption can be reduced by more than 20% during streaming, and the web browsing and application startup time is about 20% higher than that of the Snapdragon 660.
At present, Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor has been released for OEM manufacturers, and it is expected that the equipment equipped with Snapdragon 710 will be listed in the second quarter of this year.
