Snapdragon 635 rumored to use Kryo cores on a 14nm process


Latest rumors suggest that an upcoming mid-range chipset like the Snapdragon 635 is in the works by Qualcomm, in order to bridge the gap between the SD660 and the old SD630 SoC.

It seems that this new chipset will be built on a 14nm LPP process and will use an octa-core Kryo processor – 4 big cores, 4 small, along with a new GPU that promises to be 20% faster than the Snapdragon 625 GPU. If true, that’s not much – Qualcomm was promising a 30% boost for the GPU inside the 630 over the 625, with the production for the former set to begin in the first quarter of next year.

But that’s not all Qualcomm plans to offer to the industry in the coming months. Rumor has it that the company has also plans for a Snapdragon 670 SoC – which will be the first 10nm 6-series chipset in the market, using a new generation of Kryo core, the 360.

We expect this SoC to appear by early 2018 and it will be used in several mid-range smartphones in the market.

    Qualcomm is killing Mediatek slowly but surely…

      Mediatek is killing itself but it is a pity that Mediatek is the only competition remaining. Qualcomm is playing dirty and this isn’t good for the market.

        Far from it… Samsung is competitive to Qualcomm and Huawei (Kirin) is also becoming competitive. MTK did forsaken and predicted it’s own fault but not from US Qualcomm but rising Chinese SoC manufacturer’s. Unfortunately QC (CAF) is only remaining Open Stuck one & that is really bad. Meanwhile China rise never happened thanks to the US government’s dirty politics much more than anything QC could have done, meanwhile other players that are competitive are hard limited regarding cellular radio’s/modems & be certain this is not QC did alone. So it’s pretty much the closed magic circle. Only one who have straight to brake it free is Samsung & that probably won’t be happening ever. Meanwhile Titans like Apple will continue to eat their own children like Imagination Tech & their will be even less licensable IP choices out there in the wilds. It’s pretty much the same old story.

    LOL how clueless one must must be to publish this?

    Kryo the core used in SD820 is an absolute garbage and far too big for mid range.
    What is labeled today as Kryo is a slightly custom ARM core that offers no significant perf differentiation at all. The A73 and A53 in SD835 are marketed as Kryo.
    Everything they use is Kryo but that doesn’t tell you anything. They’ll use A53 or A55 and that’s that ofc.
