Today, an engineering machine equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor appeared on the GeekBench 4 website. The latter shows that the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 series chip scores 4303 points and 13344 points in the single-core and multi-core, tests. Compared with the Kirin 990 5G running score (single-core 3851 points, multi-core 12636 points), this score is slightly stronger. Compared with the Snapdragon 855 Plus (single-core 3633 points, multi-core 11165 points), the single-core performance is slightly stronger, and multi-core performance is significantly improved. As we are dealing with an engineering machine, its single and multi-core performance data may differ slightly from its real performance.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Parameters
The manufacturer has not announced its specifications yet, but we already know much about this SoC. The Snapdragon 865 still adopts eight CPU cores (one large, three middle, and four small cores). The highest frequencies are 2.84GHz, 2.42GHz, and 1.80GHz, respectively. They are completely consistent with the Snapdragon 855. By the way, the Snapdragon 855 Plus large core frequency has been increased to 2.96GHz.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 865’s CPU uses the new Kryo 585 architecture, up to 2.84GHz. Also, it integrates the Adreno 650 GPU, of which the performance is improved by 25%. The SoC also supports 7.5Gbps download speed and WiFi 6 protocol, a new generation of CV-ISP, supporting UFS 3.0 flash memory, and LPDDR5 memory.
As for screen and camera, the Snapdragon 865 supports a 144Hz refresh rate and up to 200MP cameras. It also brings 64MP at 4K, 8K at 30FPS, and unlimited 960FPS video recording.
Earlier today, Qualcomm stated that the Snapdragon 865 is equipped with X55 5G baseband. And it uses the 5th generation AI engine to support HDR10 +. 5G networks support mmWave millimeter wave, Sub 6GHz, CA, DSS, independent and non-independent network. The AI performance of Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 has reached 15 TOPS, which is twice the previous generation.
