Two gigapixels per second. This spec may seem like a relatively arbitrary improvement in Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 series, but it’s the biggest driving force behind most of the new Snapdragon 865 camera features.
I had a moment to sit down with Qualcomm’s Judd Heape, Senior Director of Product Management for Camera at Qualcomm, to talk about the new capabilities.
How is Qualcomm doing this?
Hitting two gigapixels per second is no small feat. The Spectra ISP in the Snapdragon 855 could achieve 1.4 gigapixels per second, so a 40% jump seems like a big deal, especially where thermals are involved. And while you normally need to crank clock speed to see better performance, Qualcomm decided to do the opposite.
“We knew we couldn’t just keep increasing frequency,” explained Heape. “You can’t go into the multi-universe of frequencies and still be thermally viable. So now instead of processing …read more
