Qualcomm Announces New Snapdragon 768G 5G Processor
Qualcomm has announced its follow-up to last year’s Snapdragon 765G chip. The new Snapdragon 768G model is supposedly aimed towards giving mobile gaming players an increase in overall performance.
According to Qualcomm’s website, the Snapdragon 768G processor delivers an estimated 15% increase in graphics rendering when compared to 2019’s Snapdragon 765G. Qualcomm was able to achieve this thanks to the addition of the Adreno 620 GPU. In addition, the clock speed on the Kryo 475 CPU has increased by 15% as well, providing up to 2.8GHz.
There are some noticeable similarities between the Snapdragon 768 and the Snapdragon 765. For one, the new processor does support the Snapdragon X52 modem with support for both mmWave and sub-6GHz 5G with “global support”.
At its core, the Snapdragon 768G is focused on providing a premium experience for mobile gamers. Connectivity between players will be improved to cut down on lag during online competitive play.
Seeing as though the first wave of phones supporting Snapdragon 765G is still coming out, that isn’t stopping Qualcomm from releasing the new Snapdragon 768G. Redmi announced its K30 5G Racing Edition smartphone alongside Qualcomm’s announcement. That being said, there is no indication of when smartphones supporting Snapdragon 768G will release in North America. That being said, the new chip could lower the cost of the device when they begin to emerge.
