On December 5th Qualcomm finally unveiled detailed technical parameters for its new flagship platform, the SnapDragon865, which is impressively strong and officially unashamed, calling it the performance of the “Monster” and “the world’s most advanced 5G mobile platform”. First, the SnapSnapdragon 865 uses TSMC’s 7nm process, the latest Kryo 585 architecture CPU, And TheDreno 650 GPU graphics core.
CPU part, SnapDragon865 is still the familiar eight core, one of the large core, three performance core based on the ARM A77 architecture magic, the highest frequency is 2.84GHz, 2.40GHz, and four energy efficiency cores based on the ARM A55 architecture magic change, Maximum frequency 1.80GHz. Officials say the SnapDragon865 CPU performance is up to 25 percent higher than in the previous generation, while energy efficiency is up to 25 percent.
In the GPU section, SnapDragon865 graphics rendering performance is up to 25% higher than in the previous generation, while energy efficiency is up to 30%, 144Hz refresh is supported for the first time, desktop-level forward rendering is supported, and stand-alone GPU drivers are supported.
Next up is the baseband section, the SnapSnapdragon 865 with a second-generation X55 baseband with a downlink rate of up to 7.5Gbps, supports dynamic spectrum sharing, and Supports Wi-Fi 6, which is one of the first Wi-Fi Alliance Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 certified products.
Then there’s the photo section, the SnapSnapdragon 865, which features the Spectra 480 CV-ISP, handles up to 2 billion pixels per second, handles 4 pixels per clock cycle, four times as many as the previous generation, and can shoot 8K30 video (more than 30 million pixels), 4K HDR video (1 billion colors), 4K120 video, 4K slow motion video, unlimited time 960FPS super slow motion video, and for the first time on a mobile platform to achieve Dolby Vision video shooting features, plus capture a record 200 million pixels of photos.
Officials also summed up the highlights of the SnapSnapdragon 865 with a picture, so let’s take a look.
