Benchmarks of the upcoming mobile processor, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 show some impressive boost in graphics performance. The data shows a potentially significant performance jump in processing power from its predecessors, the snapdragon 821 and 820.
The details were found from the GFXbench benchmark database, which further confirms that Snapdragon 835 will be an octa-core system on chip (SoC), having a clock speed of 2.2 GHz. In addition, the new Adreno 540 GPU will be another reason Snapdragon 835 will have an impressive boost in graphics performance.
At this point, only GPU results were taken from GFXbench benchmarking because it does not reflect CPU performance. Besides, Snapdragon 835 has twice the number of cores and is made on the 10nm manufacturing process, this alone indicates that the SoC will perform far better than its predecessors.
Following are some tested results on the Adreno 540 GPU:
- It scored 41.4 fps (off screen) in Manhattan 3.1 OpenGL ES 3.1,
- 8 FPs (off screen) in Manhattan OpenGL ES 3.0,
- 9 fps (off screen) in T-Tex OpenGL ES 2.0
These tests confirm that Adreno 540 is approximately 30% faster and more powerful than the current Adreno 530 GPU inside the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 CPU. Check out the Benchmarking of graphics Performance below:
The 10nm process will allow up to 27% improvement in performance, and it will allow the CPU will consume up to 40% less power. This will improve battery life and enable faster multitasking as mobile devices get increasingly powerful day by day.
Snapdragon 835 will free up more space in smartphones and will allow manufacturers to cram in even more tech into these small devices. Smartphone manufacturers could even go with bigger batteries.
Reportedly, the first batch is expected to come out next year and word has it that the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Xiaomi Mi6 are will be the first two phones powered by the Snapdragon 835 CPU.What do you think of the upcoming Snapdragon 835 processor?
