Mobile phones and tablets run on embedded microchips commonly referred to as chipsets. These chipsets were designed to perform one of a few dedicated functions, often with real time computing constraints.
With advancements in technology, modern smartphones are now equipped with more advanced chipsets that can handle a wide range of tasks depending on how it is programmed.
Mobile phone users tend to consider the clock rate of the CPU (Central Processing Unit) as key factor in deciding whether to buy the phone. However, it is important to understand that the performance of a device is not a result of a single chipset but instead a series of embedded chipsets.
Another important factor to consider when guaging the performance of a processor is that there are different processor families and generations. Therefore, when comparing the processors, it is vital to take into account the process families and generations.
With the continuous development of more powerful smartphones, mobile gaming is rapidly gaining popularity. As a result, users are now more aware of the different types of GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) chips that come as part of the mobile chipsets and help in rendering graphic images on the screen.
