- Snapdragon 765 SoC features a Kryo 475 CPU and Adreno 620 GPU
- Snapdragon 765G has better GPU performance than the Snapdragon 765
Qualcomm on Tuesday announced its new flagship Snapdragon 865 mobile platform, along with 5G-capable mid-range chipsets called the Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 765G SoCs. However, not a lot of details were shared on the first day of the company’s Tech Summit 2019. On day two however, Qualcomm has shared more details about what makes these two SoCs tick, including the type of CPU and GPU and what sort of performance boost we can expect from them. Devices based on all three SoCs will be commercially available from Q1 2020. This means, we should be seeing a lot of smartphones announced during MWC (Mobile World Congress) in February, based on them.
The Snapdragon 865 SoC has been in the works for two years and is only now going into production. It’s built using the 7nm fabrication process from TSMC, featuring a Kryo 585 CPU and Adreno 650 GPU. The CPU consists of four ARM Cortex-A77 cores, of which the three cores run at up to 2.4GHz, white the Prime core runs up to 2.84GHz. These make up the SoC’s ‘performance’ cores. The remaining four ‘efficiency’ cores are made up of ARM Cortex-A55 CPUs and have a maximum clock speed of 1.8GHz. Compared to the Snapdragon 855 SoC, the new Kryo 585 CPU is said to offer up to 25 percent better performance and power efficiency. The same goes for the Adreno 650 GPU, which is said to deliver up to 25 percent better performance. Keith Kressin, SVP Product Management at Qualcomm said that the goal for the engineering team was to deliver “sustained performance,” while keeping thermals in chec
