Our own testing of score consistency
Before we tell you how well Snapdragon 835 benchmarked we wanted to share one more important thing. The 10nm chip really stays cool even after five runs of the same benchmark. Some of its competitors will fail significantly after five runs.
Qualcomm takes the lead
It has been quite some time since Qualcomm announced Snapdragon X16, the world’s first Gigabit LTE modem. The same GigabitLTE Snapdragon X16 modem is now part of the Snapdragon 835 - a 10nm SoC that is about to debut in a dozen high end phones.

Ryzen 7 and now Ryzen 5 have launched and they are putting enormous pressure on Intel in the top-level market segment. After a whole decade, price/performance is definitely on AMD's side and even the upcoming Naples 32 core server part will put enormous pressure on Intel’s cash cow in the server market.
Despite being unhappy with 10nm process
MediaTek is not having much luck with getting the yields right for TSMC's 10nm process, but it will continue to partner with the foundry to make its next-generation flagship mobile chips.
10nm, Gigabit LTE, octa core and Mali G71 GPU
Samsung decided not to talk about the Galaxy S8 at the Mobile World Congress, channeling all the media attention to a Galaxy S3 tablet.
35 percent better performance at 50 percent lower power
MediaTek has officially introduced the Helio X30 and showcased prototype phones at the Mobile World congress. Helio X30 is a dramatic improvement from the last generation as the new SoC comes in 10nm, Imagination Technology GPU and performs faster with much lower power.
Key customers were not interested
MediaTek is planning a Helio X30 in 10nm later this year but news from Taiwan indicates that some key customers didn’t order the new flagship 10 core chip.
Mi 5C arrives in March
Native Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi Technology is expected to sidestep this year’s Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona as it gears up to announce its next-generation Mi 5C based on a custom in-house developed CPU in March, according to the latest overseas reports.
15 percent figure touted
Intel was showing a slide at its investor day yesterday which claims that Cannonlake will give a 15 percent performance improvement.
