More powerful than Snapdragon 888 and with surprises in terms of the camera. Qualcomm is already preparing a new flagship platform

Published

It would seem that Qualcomm recently introduced the flagship platform Snapdragon 888, but the company is already working hard on its successor. The promising novelty is called Waipio, and its catalog number is SM8450.

Waipio is both a valley and a village on the island of Oahu, Hawaii: Qualcomm often codenames its products after some geographic feature in the archipelago. From the local language, the word can be translated as “curved water”.

There are no technical details about the SM8450, but something is interesting. The Waipio test platform is reportedly equipped with 12GB LPDDR5 memory, 256GB UFS flash and … a camera module named Leica1. Apparently, the successor to the Snapdragon 888 will delight with some serious innovations in the camera, which are being created in cooperation with Leica specialists. This company has been cooperating with Huawei for a long time, whose smartphones regularly occupy the highest places in various ratings, so it is possible that some developments from Huawei smartphones regarding the camera will migrate to other models based on the SM8450.

The premiere of the new top-end SoC Qualcomm is expected in early December this year. In addition to the SM8450, Qualcomm is also working on a cheaper version of the Snapdragon 888 – without a built-in 5G modem.

Xiaomi is in big trouble The companys net profit for

Xiaomi has been hit hard by the decline in demand in the smartphone market. As the company’s latest financial report showed, its net income has plummeted an incredible 83% to $204 million. This turned out to be even lower than the company’s own forecasts.

Xiaomi is in big trouble.  The company's net profit for the last quarter collapsed by 83%

At the same time, revenue fell much less: by 20%, to $10.3 billion, and this is insignificant, but higher than forecasts.

In China, shipments of Xiaomi smartphones fell by 22% last quarter, while the overall market there fell by 14.7%. The fall of Xiaomi was the most significant among the market leaders. Xiaomi also came under fire in India, where the government decided to ban Chinese smartphone makers from selling devices under $150. True, this has not yet had time to affect the Xiaomi business.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra will indeed get a 200MP camera

Samsung will indeed equip the flagship smartphone Galaxy S23 Ultra with its 200-megapixel sensor for the main camera.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra will indeed get a 200MP camera.  Samsung allegedly confirmed this to its partners

The source claims that Samsung has already confirmed this information to its partners. Recall that we have heard such rumors before. At the same time, it is not yet clear which sensor the Korean giant will use, but rumors said that this would be a solution that has not yet been announced.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra will be the only flagship device with such a camera, but that’s to be expected, as the latest generation S2x Ultra models have always had a different camera than the younger versions. At the same time, it is possible that the Galaxy S23 / S23 + can get 108-megapixel sensors, previously reserved for Ultra versions.

Recall, the other day Motorola introduced the first smartphone with a 200-megapixel camera. The Moto X30 Pro features the first of its kind Samsung ISOCELL HP1 sensor.

Operating at only 66%, 96-core AMD processors wipe out all competitors. Epyc Genoa test results in Cinebench R23

Operating at only 66 96 core AMD processors wipe out all

The test results of two AMD Epyc server processors of the Genoa generation with 96 cores each have appeared on the Web. According to available data, this is either Epyc 9664 or Epyc 9654.

The CPU was tested in Cinebench R23, and the catch is that this software recognizes a maximum of 256 threads. Two 96-core processors have 384 threads thanks to SMT support. That is, the result obtained in the benchmark reflects only two thirds of the capabilities of the tested pair of CPUs.

Despite this, the processors scored over 110,000 points in multi-threaded mode. In a single thread, the result was 1302 points.

For comparison, one 64-core Threadripper 5995WX gains about the same amount (even a little more), but overclocked to 5.15 GHz using liquid nitrogen. The comparison with the direct competitor Xeon Platinum 8480+ is more interesting. A system with two of these 56-core processors scores only about 68,500 points. True, the source says that there were problems in the operation of these CPUs, so serial processors may show slightly better results. However, in any case, the gap is huge, because even two current-generation 64-core Epyc 7763 score 98,000 points. As a result, it is not yet clear whether the new Intel server processors will be able to somehow withstand the monsters of AMD. In addition, judging by the latest data, Sapphire Rapids-SP will eventually be delayed even more and will not be released until next year.
