Top specs and features

General info

1.GPU clock speed

900MHz

624MHz

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.

Best

AMD Ryzen 7 2800H

1300MHz

2.Supports 64-bit
HiSilicon Kirin 960
Qualcomm Snapdragon 835

A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit applications.

3.Has integrated graphics
HiSilicon Kirin 960
Qualcomm Snapdragon 835

With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.

4.Semiconductor size

16nm

10nm

Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.

Performance

1.CPU speed

4 x 2.36GHz & 4 x 1.84GHz

4 x 2.45GHz & 4 x 1.9GHz

Best

MediaTek Helio X30

2 x 2.6 & 4 x 2.2 & 4 x 1.9GHz

2.Uses big.LITTLE technology
HiSilicon Kirin 960
Qualcomm Snapdragon 835

Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores in order to maximise performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking e-mail will use the less powerful cores to maximise battery life.

Features

1.Has integrated LTE
