Qualcomm Snapdragon 865: the successor of the Snapdragon 855 will offer 20% improved performance

ByGoraud Mazanec 2019-11-12 978

Next December, taking advantage of the Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit 2019 that the brand celebrates every year, we will know the new processor for the high end of smartphones. The Snapdragon 865 will be introduced and we will be able to know what it has to offer to the new generation of terminals that we will probably see during the MWC.

For now little has been known about it, little beyond that it would carry the new Snapdragon X55 to have 5G NSA/SA integrated and would, logically, surpass in power to the current generation.


But now a filtration has left some of the characteristics of this Snapdragon 865. Always in a supposed way because nothing can be given for certain until the official presentation, but the filtration seems to have base and thanks to it we can compose lightly what it is that awaits us with the future brain of the North Americans.

Snapdragon 865 eight-core CPU: Cortex A77 cores with improved performance

According to Digital Chat Station, the user in charge of exposing some of the features of the Snapdragon 865, Qualcomm's future processor would use an eight-core CPU with three clusters distributed as follows: we would talk about a Cortex A77 core running at 2.84GHz, three other Cortex A77 cores running at 2.42GHz and four Cortex A55 cores running at 1.8GHz.

This structure would provide a high performance and low power consumption, with the addition of a more powerful core than the others for the most demanding tasks, and surely with a view to artificial intelligence operators as support for the dedicated chip or to squeeze the maximum mobile video games. According to the filtering, this CPU would make the Snapdragon 865 20% more powerful than the Snapdragon 855, although it refers to last year's December processor and not the Plus model.

Snapdragon 865 Adreno 650 GPU

For the GPU, we would talk about a new GPU called Adreno 650, whose internal configuration has not been revealed, and that would run at 587MHz. There is also talk of the increase in graphics power and is between 17% and 20% with respect to the Adreno 640 of the Snapdragon 855.

Nothing else is known about this processor apart from the modem, which as we mentioned earlier should be the Snapdragon X55 with 5G NSA/SA.

Snapdragon 865 benchmark score on GeekBench

According to the leaked benchmark score of the Snapdragon 865, the increase in pure and hard performance would not be so pronounced. We are talking about a processor that in Single Core and Multi Core offers the following results:


● GeekBench Single Core: 4,149 points.

● GeekBench Multi core: 12,915 points.

This difference is not really large compared to 855+, 10% more performance. Although if the graphical improvement is placed at the height of the last Apple chip and also brings new improvements in machine learning tasks will already be worth it. Although we can not forget that with a power level increasingly difficult to overcome, where they are also making many efforts is to improve optimization and energy efficiency. Here you can get up to 20% more.


This Snapdragon 865 would be Qualcomm's last to be built with 7 nanometre technology, at least in its high end, and we will see its presentation in approximately one month. Then we'll know all about it, including Qualcomm's enhancements to the artificial intelligence code so essential today for photography and many other uses.
