Qualcomm recently released the Snapdragon 870 SoC which is more of a “Snapdragon 865++”. This chip is a 7nm processor but its performance is better than both SD865 and SD865+.
However, it is below the 5nm flagship Snapdragon 888 SoC. Since its release, a couple of manufacturers have confirmed that they will use this chip.
Back in December 2020, Qualcomm held its Snapdragon Summit in the United States. During the conference, the chipmaker announced its next big thing for the flagship segment –
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. This chipset brings the cutting-edge ARM Cortex-X1 and Cortex-A78 cores and also is based on the 5nm node.
The new chipset has the SM8250-AC model number and brings the highest clock speed in the mobile world. The prime core now runs at 3.2GHz, up from 3.1GHz on the 865+ and 2.94 GHz on the vanilla SD865.
The last year’s models have been surpassed by Huawei’s last chipset that reached the market with a 3.13GHz prime core. Now, Qualcomm reclaims the title of overclocking master in the mobile segment.
Once again, Qualcomm is betting on the Adreno 650 GPU to ensure high-end graphical performance. However, it’s unclear right now if Qualcomm has applied a clock boost or some tweaks to make it better.
The Hexagon 698 and the Tensor Accelerator deliver the same 15 TOPs as the previous Snapdragon 865 chips.
