Snapdragon Performance Comes From CPU Design

We custom design our own microarchitecture, called “Krait,” based on the ARM instruction set. This allows us to innovate and improve performance every step of the way. The Krait CPU design uses asynchronous symmetric multiprocessing (aSMP), a technology that can throttle the frequency of each CPU core independently. This allows the CPU to use only the number of cores and amount of power needed to complete the task at hand, resulting in an incredibly power efficient design. Watch the video to see how performance comes from design.
