Qualcomm’s second-best chip for 2020, the Snapdragon 765G, is just barely hitting the market, but that isn’t stopping the company from releasing a new and improved version. Today, Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 768G, an overclocked version of the 765G.
Qualcomm is promising a 15-percent faster CPU and GPU compared to the Snapdragon 765G. Considering yearly upgrades from Qualcomm are only in the 25-percent range, that’s a pretty significant upgrade. The speed boosts are all from faster clocks. The main “Prime” CPU jumps up to 2.8GHz from the 2.4GHz of the 765G. Qualcomm doesn’t have official numbers for the Adreno 620 GPU, but we know it used to be 625MHz, so now it should be up around 725MHz.
The Snapdragon 768G isn’t just a speed boost. Qualcomm also lists “Support for Adreno Updateable GPU Drivers” and “Bluetooth 5.2” in the spec sheet.
