General info

1.Has integrated graphics
Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
2.Supports 64-bit
Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996
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 apps.
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.
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
6.has 5G support
Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996
The fifth-generation wireless technology delivers higher speeds and lower latency than the previous, fourth-generation tech.
OpenGL ES is used for games on mobile devices such as smartphones. Newer versions support better graphics.
8.GPU turbo

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
Some apps use OpenCL to apply the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.

Performance

1.CPU speed

2 x 2.15GHz & 2 x 1.6GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
3.Uses big.LITTLE technology
Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996
Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores to maximize 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 maximize battery life.
4.Uses HMP
Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996
Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP) is a more advanced version of big.LITTLE technology. In this setup, a processor can utilize all cores at the same time, or just a single core for low-intensity tasks. This can provide powerful performance or increased battery life respectively.
5.turbo clock speed

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
6.L2 cache

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
7.L1 cache

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
8.clock multiplier

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The clock multiplier controls the speed of the CPU.
9.L3 cache

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.

Memory

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
A higher version of eMMC allows faster memory interfaces, having a positive effect on the performance of a device. For example, when transferring files from your computer to the internal storage over USB.
6.Supports ECC memory
Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996
Error-correcting code memory can detect and correct data corruption. It is used when is it essential to avoid corruption, such as scientific computing or when running a server.
DDR (Double Data Rate) memory is the most common type of RAM. Newer versions of DDR memory support higher maximum speeds and are more energy-efficient.

Features

1.Has integrated LTE
Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
The download speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can access online content.
3.Has NX bit
Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996 (Qualcomm Kryo)
NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.
NEON provides acceleration for media processing, such as listening to MP3s.
5.Has AES
Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996 (Qualcomm Kryo)
AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.
6.Has TrustZone
Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996 (Qualcomm Kryo)
A technology integrated into the processor to secure the device for use with features such as mobile payments and streaming video using digital rights management (DRM).
7.upload speed

150MBits/s

The upload speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can send information to a server or another device.
Vector Floating-Point (VFP) is used by the processor to deliver increased performance in areas such as digital imaging.
9.uses multithreading
Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996
Multithreading technology (such as Intel's Hyperthreading or AMD's Simultaneous Multithreading) provides increased performance by splitting each of the processor's physical cores into virtual cores, also known as threads. This way, each core can run two instruction streams at once.
