On the 5th, the new generation of Qualcomm Snapdragon 7250 (855) flagship processor, which was officially unveiled at Qualcomm’s 3rd Snapdragon Technology Summit, announced the data on the 6th. The 7-nanometer process of the Snapdragon 855 flagship processor boosts CPU performance by 45% over the previous generation Snapdragon 845 processor, while the GPU segment is up 20% faster than the Snapdragon 845 processor. According to Qualcomm, the 850 flagship processor is the flagship processor with the highest CPU performance ever, because it is called the strongest processor on the surface.
Qualcomm pointed out that the Snapdragon 7250 (855) mobile processor is in the CPU part, and the internal core design uses a 3-cluster architecture. However, unlike the core architecture of the 2+2+4 market, the Kryo 485 core architecture is used, including a 2.84GHz super large core, three 2.42GHz high-performance cores and four A 1.8 GHz small core architecture delivers 45% better performance than the previous generation Snapdragon 845 processor’s Kryo 435 core.
Qualcomm pointed out that the composition of the core architecture such as 1+3+4 is mainly based on the average performance and energy consumption. When high-performance computing is required, all calculations are carried out by the super-large core. At other times, other performance cores and small cores are responsible for reducing energy consumption requirements. This approach is the biggest improvement of the Snapdragon series on the CPU, and it is also the first successful application on the cluster core architecture, and it is also optimized for the apps that are commonly used by ordinary people.
As for the GPU, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7250 processor’s GPU is the Adreno 640, which is 20% faster than the previous generation Qualcomm 845 mobile processor, with a lower power consumption ratio and support for Vulkan. 1.1 standards, as well as high dynamic range imaging (HDR) and physical reality rendering (PBR) technologies, the esports experience using Adreno image technology, will reach a new standard of image realism.
In addition, in terms of network connection, the Snapdragon 855 mobile processor is equipped with Snapdragon X50 5G baseband chip, which is the world’s first mobile processor supporting 5G commercial network. At the same time, the built-in Snapdragon X24 LTE baseband chip is used to achieve the best Gigabit 4G networking capability. Qualcomm pointed out that in the future when the Snapdragon 855 processor is installed on the mobile device, it will simultaneously open the Snapdragon X50 5G baseband chip and the Snapdragon X24 LTE baseband chip while running on the 5G and 4G LTE networks.
In addition, the Snapdragon 855 mobile processor uses the Qualcomm 60GHz Wi-Fi mobile platform to support the millimeter-wave band Wi-Fi. The industry’s first 802.11ay-compliant wireless network chipset enables Wi-Fi speeds to reach an unprecedented 10Gbps speed, achieving a low latency for equivalent cable transmission.
This time, although Qualcomm did not announce the Snapdragon 855 mobile processor built with the 7-nm process, the Snapdragon 845 mobile processor built by the previous generation of 10-nanometer process, the proportion of the wafer area is reduced, and the built-in How many transistors are there. However, Qualcomm further pointed out that there are more than 6 billion transistors in the same number of mobile processors as competitors built on the 7-nm process. However, through the software optimization of various software and OEM partners, the Snapdragon 7250 (855) mobile processor can achieve the performance that other competitors can’t achieve.
