The 400-series represent Qualcomm's mid-range Snapdragon chipsets that have been used to power up many entry-level smartphones and now the California-based company is all set to move towards a generational update to its 400-series processors by ranging up to a 14nm process, a change that is designed to bring very significant efficiency gains, as compared to the current 400-series chips that are on a 28nm process.
Snapdragon 435 has been till date the most powerful 400-series chipset the company has offered in the mid-range section and the upgraded Snapdragon 450 utilizes the same Cortex A53 cores shared by the 435, but on a smaller 14nm process. Qualcomm is also working closely to substantially raise the maximum clock speed of their processors, up to 1.8GHz on the 450 versus a maximum of 1.4GHz on the 435.
