We know it will take some time for the new flagship smartphones to come. Snapdragon shared new design and processor specs as of reference. The Snapdragon 845 uses the Cortex-A75 and A55 based CPU core design. There are four blocks and they are no longer in cluster forms. It will be the first chipset to support DyanmIQ which allows voltage and frequency control.

The Snapdragon 845 performance has 2.8Ghz as the default maximum frequency. Even though Snapdragon 835 has 2.47Ghz as the default higher frequency yet no company used that frequency in their smartphones.

However, Snapdragon 845 processor shows huge improvements in both integer and floating point tasks. This new chip is built on a 10nm LPP process. This chip allows slightly higher clock speed for similar power usage.

Snapdragon 845 performance in Geekbench 4 score shows the single threaded and multi-threaded benchmarks.

New GPU in Snapdragon 845 Processor

The new GPU that is Adreno 630 is very impressive as well. GFXBench posted its and Apple’s latest GPU which stands great. The reference half design is quite similar to Huawei’s Kirin 970 which powers the Mate 10 pro.

Snapdragon 845 is going to be the fastest chipset for the Android smartphones in 2018. Yet, Samsung is about to release the Exynos 9810 benchmark sheet very soon for a tough competition. Note: Report is generated on bases of AnandTech post.
