At the event Snapdragon Tech Summit in 2019, an American company Qualcomm introduced its top chipset, designed for the upcoming TOP models, Snapdragon 865. Now we have a better equipped variant, known as Snapdragon 865 +.
It is he who has created his standard position in the flagship models from the current year. In terms of performance, it also beats its relentless competition, in the form of Exynos 990, Kirin 990 or MediaTek Dimensity 1000L chipsets.
It is also known for smartphones such as OnePlus 8, Xiaomi Mi 10 or certain variants of the model line Samsung Galaxy S20.
Snapdragon 865+ is ready to show its strength
In the middle of the year, the American giant has now prepared an improved version of the processor for us, the Snapdragon 865+. He will try to prove who the king is, driving the best Android phones.
The same company did the same in the case of last year's Snapdragon 855, respectively Snapdragon 821 back in 2016. We mean that a few versions of processors with the addition of "plus" already existed of course.
While the Snapdragon 865 currently powers more than 140 individual models, the "plus" version will be intended for upcoming high-end devices.
Snapdragon 865+ consists of one performance, 3,09 GHz Kryo 585 Prime cores, combined with a trio 2,42 GHz Kryo 585 Gold Core and Quartet 1,8 GHz Kryo 585 Silver core. The chip is also equipped with an excellent graphics accelerator Adreno 650.
The highest tact Qualcomm has ever used
For comparison, we mention that the clock of the most powerful kernel in the case of Snapdragon 855+ was 2,96 GHz. 3,09 GHz This is a record because of the mobile processors from the company 's workshop Qualcomm they have not yet reached such a frequency.
Even though the performance of the graphics accelerator does not achieve as great results as the Apple A13, it is still the perfect chip for smartphones from the gaming segment. The above-mentioned processors, such as the Exynos 990, Kirin 990 and Dimensity 1000L, are a bit worse in terms of graphics performance.
Snapdragon 865+ has extended connectivity options
We are slowly getting to the new, successful advantages of the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. This is, for example, the system FastConnect 6900 for excellent network connectivity WiFi and technology Bluetooth.
It is therefore supported WiFi 6Ereaching a new frequency 6 GHz and modern Bluetooth 5.2. WiFi connection speeds can reach up to respectable 3,6 Gb / swhich, according to the chip manufacturer himself, is the fastest in the entire industry.
Mobile gamers will also enjoy the integration Qualcomm Snapdragon Elite Gaming, along with support for state - of - the - art fifth - generation networks (5G) a "ultra-intuitive" artificial intelligence (AI).
The rendering of graphic scenes should go as well as on a classic, computer-driven computer. The highest frame rate has been increased to amazing 144 fps, which gives the opportunity to take full advantage of the increasingly common 144 Hz displays. Convenient gaming is also possible thanks to the support 10-bit HDR.
Battery charging is possible thanks to the technology Qualcomm Quick Charge 4 +. The chipset itself is made in the second generation 7 nm DUV (N7P) manufacturing process according to the Taiwan TSMC.
We know two models in which the newly introduced chipset will be used
How did we in our previous article already mentioned, you will find Snapdragon 865 in the upcoming smartphones Lenovo Legion av ASUS ROG Phone 3.
In the article you will also find information about the number of points in the AnTuT Benchmark. They move with a large reserve above the magical limit. 600 000 points. You can look forward to several devices with this processor as early as the third quarter of 2020.
