Qualcomm Snapdragon 632, 439, 429 announced
After the release of Qualcomm’s newest premium mid-range processor, Snapdragon 710, the company announced three new ones that cater to mid-range and lower-end mobile devices, the Snapdragon 632, 439, and 429.
First up is the Snapdragon 632 which is said to pit against the SD 626 rather than the SD630. It has a 14nm architecture, four Kryo 250 semi-custom cores that are based off the Cortex-A73, and an additional four Cortex-A53 cores. Both of them can reach up to 1.8GHz clock speed and is said to have a 40% performance increase over the SD 626. Its GPU is the Adreno 506 which is a little bit odd upon looking at Qualcomm’s naming scheme, however, the company said that it will have a 10% performance increase over the Adreno 506 of the SD626.
Next are the successors to the Snapdragon 430 and 425, respectively, the Snapdragon 439 and 429, that have a 12nm architecture. The former sports eight Cortex-A53 cores that can go up to 1.95GHz clock speed while the latter only has four Cortex-A53 cores that can go up to 1.45GHz. Adreno 505 will be paired with the former while Adreno 504 will be the latter’s GPU partner.
