Qualcomm's Latest Chip

Tech giant Qualcomm is expected to announce the Snapdragon 875 chipset next month. And according to a leakster on Weibo, there is already a prototype of the new platform.

According to Digital Chat Station, the 5 nm chip will have one Cortex-X1 super powerful core running at 2.84 GHz, three Cortex-A78 ones at 2.42 GHz, and four power-efficient Cortex-A55 clocked at 1.8 GHz.

Initial Snapdragon 875 leaked specs have already revealed better performance, similar CPU to SD865. According to ARM calculations, the Cortex-X1 will bring 20% higher sustained performance than Cortex-A78 and 30% better peak performance, which aligns well with early benchmarks.

The Snapdragon 875 will also bring a new Adreno 660 GPU, the leakster revealed. The cache and memory bandwidth will be improved and the new Qualcomm platform will provide better low-power consumption, bringing the battery life to greater lengths.

Since there are still four weeks until the official launch in Hawaii, the US, there is a lot of time for more rumors and leaks, that might give us a clearer picture. Stay tuned for more updates.
