As per the latest news coming in from the folk at Snapdragon, it seems that the company are ready to launch their newest chipset in the world of technology. The all new Snapdragon 875 is set to become Qualcomm’s first 5nm chip which is made particularly to power the major flagship phones for 2021. The chip has been codenamed as the “Lahaina” and according to reports from benchmark showing that it may be significantly faster than the recently launched Snapdragon 865.
In turn, the Snapdragon 875 has been able to score a whopping 847,000 points in AnTuTu’s benchmark, which should be seen as a significant improvement over the SD 865 which is currently atop the charts with 663,000 points, so we can see the obvious jump in performance over here, so one can understand the amount of capabilities this new hardware chipset may bring. In all, it is spike of over 25%, which is a major update, considering that this is a yearly launched chipset, so in just year seeing how the company was able to achieve those number is a pretty big thing. However, we are going to have to wait for Qualcomm’s official confirmation before anything is certain.
When we compare the iPhone 12’s 5nm A14 Bionic chip, the chipset scores 565,000 on Antutu, whereas the Kirin 9000 and Exynos 1080 score 696,000 and 693,000, respectively. These come quite close to the scores of the Snapdragon 865 but are well far away with in regards with the numbers achieved by the SD 875.
However, it should be kept in mind that the RAM and storage configurations is also something that will play a major role in defining the final results. So if a handset has a high capacity UFS 3.1 storage, then the storage might offset the minor clock speed deficit of the chipset. As per reports, Qualcomm is expected to unveil the new Snapdragon 875 along with other chips this December and as we approach nearer to the date of launch we are bound to get more information in regards with the chipset, so we shall keep you updated.
