Since the LG G Flex 2, which was launched earlier this year, uses Snapdragon processor 810, the assumption is that the LG decide to use the same chipset in their upcoming flagship model – LG G4. However, according to the latest leaked information Snapdragon 810 seems to be absent from LG G4 models. In its place comes Snapdragon 808 chipset. Of course, it remains to be seen whether the leaked photos, which reveal this information, are authentic, or may represent the characteristics of another device. With regard to the earlier information about overheating Snapdragon 810, it is possible that LG chose an alternative solution. In any case, the latest information on potential G4 chip on LG phone should be taken with a grain of salt, and all doubts will surely be resolved on April 28, when LG G4 presentation will happen.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset has a high performing CPU with a maximum clock speed of 2,000.00 MHz. It has 6 core(s), resulting in extremely efficient multi-tasking when compared to dual core processors.
As a result of following the Harvard architecture, the CPU has a separate Level 1 instruction and data cache leading to a slight improvement in performance over a unified Level 1 cache. The instruction cache is only used for storing instructions and executes in a sequential manner. The data cache stores data used by instructions; the point of access or storage is generally specified by an instruction.
This processor is based on the Reduced Instruction Set Computing (RISC) design strategy enabling instructions to execute faster, as opposed to the Complex Instruction Set Computing (CISC) design strategy, which is generally slower at executing due to lengthy instructions.
