Qualcomm Snapdragon 615

13 Reasons why Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 is better

than the average

1.Plenty faster CPU clock speed
8 x 1.7GHzvs 4.7 x 2.3GHz (the average)
vs 8 x 8GHz (best: AMD Opteron 6220)
2.Bigger L2 cache
2MBvs 2MB (the average)
vs 16MB (best: AMD Opteron 6380)
A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
3.Explicitly more L2 cache per core
0.5MB/corevs 0.4MB/core (the average)
vs 2.5MB/core (best: Intel Core i5-4200Y)
More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
4.Has integrated LTE
Yesvs No (89% don't have it)
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
5.Newer version of DirectX
11.1vs 10.7 (the average)
vs 12 (best: AMD A10-7870K)
DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
6.Uses big.LITTLE technology
Yesvs No (95% don't have it)
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 email will use the less powerful cores to maximise battery life.
7.A bit newer version of OpenCL
1.2vs 1.2 (the average)
vs 2 (best: Intel Xeon E3-1275 v5)
Some applications use OpenCL to utilise the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.
8.Sizably wider front-end
3vs 3 (the average)
vs 6 (best: Apple A10)
The CPU can decode more instructions per clock (IPC), meaning that the CPU performs better
9.Significantly newer version of OpenGL ES
3vs 3 (the average)
vs 3.1 (best: Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 APQ8084)
OpenGL ES is used for games on mobile devices such as smartphones. Newer versions support better graphics.
