Qualcomm has just introduced the Snapdragon 768G, a small evolution with respect to the processor that we already knew. This Snapdragon 768G comes with improvements at both CPU and GPU level, as well as slight tweaks at the support level to be a little more updated.
“We are uniquely positioned to accelerate 5G commercialization at scale and Snapdragon 768G is an example of how we’re continuing to deliver solutions to address the needs of our OEM customers,” said Kedar Kondap, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “Our expanding portfolio has the potential to make 5G accessible to billions of smartphone users around the world.”
Snapdragon 768G offers the following performance enhancements over Snapdragon 765G:
- Qualcomm Kryo 475 CPU Prime core clock speed up to 2.8 GHz (improved from 2.4 GHz)
- Qualcomm Adreno 620 GPU offers up to 15% performance increase
- Support for Adreno Updateable GPU Drivers
Snapdragon 768G Features
The new SoC maintains the same CPU architecture of the 765G This means that we find a 7-nanometer processor made up of eight custom cores (Kryo 475) with a 2 + 6 division (one high-performance cluster and one energy-efficient cluster).
Something similar happens with the GPU. In this case, we meet again with the Adreno 620, a GPU with support for Vulkan 1.1, HDR10 + and Dolby Vision, among others. In this case, Qualcomm promises a 15% improvement on this GPU compared to the 765G.
The company also announced that the Redmi K30 5G Racing Edition is the first commercial device to be presented based on Snapdragon 768G, which supports 5G SA/NSA dual-mode, a 120Hz display and up to the 64-megapixel camera.
