Qualcomm Snapdragon vs 855 845: is there a noticeable difference?

Don’t know about you, but I have during the announcement of the new chipset from Qualcomm has the impression that the previous version came out recently and is still not ready to retire. Actually, because it is. All known manufacturers of mobile devices are already in a relatively short time with the release of the Snapdragon 845 market managed to install it into their flagships, and some even in smartphones mid-range set. But despite all this, we have new generation Snapdragon 855, and in this article I propose to compare the past and the current generation of “dragons” and try to understand, and whether there is between them is noticeable to the common user the difference and is it worth it to upgrade to a new device just because it put a new “piece of metal” from Qualcomm.

What’s inside?

The first characteristic that comes to mind when comparing processors – the production process. Snapdragon 855 is the first 7-nm FinFET chip Qualcomm, as Snapdragon is 845 FinFET chip built on the basis of 10-nm theprocess. This mean that for smaller circuits became available higher energy efficiency.

Snapdragon 855 was also the first Qualcomm chipset, which used a “trehlistnyj” design instead of the classical scheme with four large and four small cores, as in the Snapdragon 845, the new processor uses a single large nucleus, four medium (the size of a large Snapdragon 845) and four small. The more the core is a Cortex-A76 on the ARM with a greater peak frequency and a large volume of cache than that of other cores and of cores, the Snapdragon 845 Cortex-A75.

In terms of graphics, everything is traditional. In the past generation stood Adreno graphics processor 630, and in this set Adreno 640. Qualcomm estimates the increase in productivity of 20% across the generations, but other improvements had not been mentioned. Among other innovations like the codec support H. 265 and VP9, shooting 360-degree video and video at a resolution of 8K. Support for new codecs allows to reduce power consumption during playback high quality video. New cpos Hexagon Hexagon 685 690 vs the new chip also increased the performance of AI.

As has been said many times, the new processor from Qualcomm acquired X24 LTE modem with support for fifth generation networks. In theory, the speed of upload and download should be 2 GB/s and 316 Mbps, respectively. But all this is only in theory, so as to test the possibilities, and yet ultimately the difference between the old and new modems may not be significant. In addition, many smartphone manufacturers said that their devices have support for 5G, although in the Snapdragon 855 this modem yet and needs to be installed separately from the CPU.

Look at the results of synthetic tests

On all smartphones that have adopted the test was run four well-known benchmark tests: AnTuTu, GeekBench (single core and multicore) and 3DMark. The test involved four smartphone Snapdragon 855 and two smartphones on Snapdragon 845.

Thanks to the AnTuTu test we can look at overall system performance, but GeekBench shows the performance of single-core and multicore processors. 3DMark also shows the results of the smartphones in the test on schedule.

If you take the average value for each of the chips, it becomes clear that the biggest difference in the results on the performance of single-core processors – an increase of 46% compared to the Snapdragon 845. This is no doubt due to the new design of the processor Kryo 485 Cortex-A76 and the large volume cache memory to 512KB compared to 256KB from Snapdragon 845.

The performance of multicore processors shows a lesser but still an impressive performance gain of 29 percent. Again, new large core Cortex-A76 show better performance than the Snapdragon 845 Cortex-A75, despite the lower clock frequency. GPU performance is almost as improved as promised Qualcomm – 19%. This performance boost will definitely help to smooth out frame rates in more demanding games.

Overall, Snapdragon 855 about 29% faster performance in AnTuTu. Of course, these indicators do not always reflect real workloads. Moreover, there are other important factors that are not accounted for in these tests, including the performance of AI and video encoding/decoding.

In addition to tests, what else is new?

Going back to the beginning of this article, all of these tests are well and good, but does the change of generation chipsets some really noticeable performance increase for the average user. The increased frame rate, no doubt, will appeal to gamers, but what about those who don’t play?

Everything will depend on manufacturers of mobile devices and what they decide the performance of the new Snapdragon 855 to use. Compared with the previous generation Snapdragon 855 has more improved features to speed computation and information processing, this means that face detection will now be faster, a smartphone with a camera now in real time can track your movement and put your 3D model in the scene, creating a very real augmented reality. The new chipset has sufficient capacity to HDR video in 4K resolution and 60 frames per second to blur the background behind the object in focus creating a bokeh effect.

Combine all this with advanced image processing, superb audio quality via Bluetooth with aptX technology and support for video recording in the resolution of 8K and it becomes clear that Snapdragon 855 – a new opportunity for smartphone manufacturers and for the users. And appropriate will change your smartphone to another with a newer CPU only when tightened the producers of these phones and show why their device on Snapdragon 855 is better than the other on the old generation of processors.

  2. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world igion called spiritualism

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast


  3. You are so cool! I do not think I’ve truly read through a single thing like that before So great to find someone with some genuine thoughts on this topic Seriously thanks for starting this up This site is one thing that is needed on the web, someone with a bit of originality!|
