The chipset maker flaunts the new SoCs offer up to two times performance at only half power usage, and 30% smaller in size as compared to their predecessor, Snapdragon Wear 4100+ Platform (12nm).

The SD W5+ Gen 1 comprises four Cortex A53 cores and one Cortex M55 efficiency core clocked at 250 MHz, Machine Learning unit U55, the A702 GPU clocked at 1 GHz—significantly higher number than SD 4100+’s 320 MHz A504 GPU—an updated memory capacity that supports LPDDR4 at 2133 Mhz, and a 22nm-based highly integrated always-on (AON) co-processor.

Avatar for JM Chavaria

JM's highest stat is probably his curious ardor to anything tech—electronics and gaming in particular. He certainly heeds utmost regard to specsheet, visuals, and rule of thirds. While JM may have a keen sense of writing, he randomly spends time experimenting on graphic designs, and calibrating his knowledge even further on photography and editing. If creativity and wit sometimes leave JM's system, watching films, anime and a good stroll for memes are his approved therapeutic claims.
