Snapdragon 865 is expected to be 20 percent faster than the 855



The dark satanic rumour mill is starting to churn about Qualcomm’s next Snapdragon 865. Qualcomm will be holding its annual Snapdragon Tech Summit starting on the 3 December this year in Maui, Hawaii, where it will announce the next-generation flagship chipset.


Snapdragon 865 will certainly come with an integrated 5G modem, but more details have emerged about the chipset thanks to a recent leak on the Chinese social media platform, Weibo.


Similar to its predecessor, the Snapdragon 855, the 865 is expected to come in an octa-core flavour that includes one high-performance Cortex-A77 core clocked at 2.84GHz, three Cortex-A77 cores clocked at 2.42GHz, and four power-efficient Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.8GHz. In terms of graphic processing, the chipset will sport a 587MHz Adreno 650 GPU, up from the Adreno 640 in its predecessor and Snapdragon 865 is expected to be 20 percent faster than the 855 hopes

All this means that the Snapdragon 865 is expected to be 20 percent faster than the 855, brought mostly due to the upgraded cores based on the Cortex-A77, which promises a 20 percent IPC improvement. The Adreno 650 is also expected to be about 20 percent faster.

The X55 brings with it impressive download speeds of up to 7Gbps. Unlike the current crop of 5G capable handsets, devices running the X55 will not need to separately house 4G and 5G modems.
