GAM­ING AND PHO­TOG­RA­PHY:

Distinguished Magazine - - INNOVATION -

Fea­tur­ing the Adreno 640 GPU, Qual­comm has stated that it will of­fer a 20 per­cent boost in per­for­mance over the pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tion and is set to out­per­form Arm’s Mali G76 chipset in the gam­ing depart­ment. It will sup­port HDR, phys­i­cal-based ren­der­ing and cut down on dropped frames up to 90 per­cent. The Snap­dragon 855 will also in­crease the per­for­mance of vir­tual re­al­ity by pro­vid­ing 8K res­o­lu­tion at 120 frames/sec­ond. To top it off, the chipset will sup­port Vulkan 1.1 graphic li­brary, mean­ing that gam­ing would be more smooth and pow­er­ful. Com­ing to the cam­era, it will fea­ture the world’s first im­age sig­nal pro­ces­sor (CV-ISP), a ded­i­cated chip to process pho­tos and videos. Bet­ter pho­tos would also mean that most of smart­phones would end up adopt­ing HEIF (High Ef­fi­ciency Im­age For­mat) in­stead of JPEG for­mat. Qual­comm has also heav­ily in­vested in ma­chine learn­ing and has worked with Nalbi, a vi­sion so­lu­tions soft­ware firm, where an im­age would cap­ture all sort of data and depth map for edit­ing it later.
