When Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC will be a customary in the best smartphones and tablets coming months as the LG G Flex 2 presented in 2015 CES past, or many of which will be presented at MWC 2015 which starts this Sunday, is building up the competition and is now not only Samsung will be able to compete as equals. MediaTek also has an ace up its sleeve with the MT6795, the most powerful announced by the Taiwanese firm to date.

To get in position, the MediaTek MT6795 SoC is a 64-bit 28-nanometer process, consisting of a powerful mainframe 4-core ARM Cortex-A57 running 2.2 GHz, plus another 4 core ARM Cortex-A53 1.7 GHz administered by ARM Big.little technologies and GTS. Complete the puzzle no less powerful GPU PowerVR G6200 IT 700 MHz. Can withstand LPDDR3 RAM at a frequency up to 933 MHz, and LTE to category 4.

On the other hand, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 also committed to training 4 + 4 with same technologies and the same type of nuclei. Therefore, the main changes we see in the GPU, in this case an Adreno 430-650 MHz, and this can build on RAM LPDDR4 type up to 1600 MHz. Supports LTE category 9 and fits also highlight the 20nm manufacturing , for the 28nm of MediaTek.

Although the differences, you will surely see clearly reflected in the cost of each system are remarkable, the fact is that the Asian company has come close to what we understand by chipset high-end, without losing pace in the race of the 64 bits. Then is capable of facing the MediaTek MT6795 at Qualcomm Snapdragon 810? As a quick response, we can say yes , at least in raw power.

Another thing is after the performance on a day to day as well as energy consumption sections in which the 810 should be better thanks to the 20 nanometers . The benchmarks also serve to get an idea of ​​that power (the first is a LG G Flex 2 with Snapdragon 810 and the second, the MT6795):

As we see, the result of a single core is higher in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, but the multi-core , the MediaTek MT6795 is done with the victory. However, as always, you have to take this type of test with tweezers, and this time with more reason, then there is some advantage bench with MediaTek . First, we see that the frequency of its main core rises to 1.95 GHz, while the Qualcomm are limited to 1.55 GHz. Another point to consider is the amount of RAM in the first is 3 GB and the other 2 GB, but this does not influence much as the different frequencies.

Yes, it is true, are just numbers, but faithfully reflect the breakthrough of MediaTek in recent years , from creating chips basic and very affordable for the lower ranges, to reach high places to mingle with “la crème de la crème” . Of course, if I were responsible for Qualcomm, start worrying. I have taken away much of the market and lower middle range , and seeing Apparently, it seems the throne in the high range is not entirely certain.
