Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 released: main frequency can reach 3.2GHz, performance is further improved

Qualcomm released the Snapdragon 870 5G mobile platform last night. Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 uses 7nm process, Kryo 585 CPU architecture, and the main frequency is up to 3.2GHz.

The CPU part of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 uses a 1+3+4 structure with 4MB L3 cache. Contains a large Cortex-A77 core, clocked at 3.2GHz; three Cortex-A77 cores, clocked at 2.42GHz; four Cortex-A55 small cores, clocked at 1.8GHz. The GPU part is Adreno 650, clocked at 670MHz.

With Hexagon 698 as the core of the AI engine, Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 can achieve 15 TOPS AI computing performance.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 supports LPDDR4X 2133MHz and LPDDR5 2750MHz memory. Support [email protected]/[email protected] video recording, as well as Dolby Vision, HDR10+ and HLG.

Like the 865, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 also requires an external Snapdragon X55 baseband. Therefore, there is no difference in network parameters, so I won’t repeat them here.

Overall, as an enhanced version of Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus, the CPU frequency of Snapdragon 870 has been further improved. Considering that 120Hz refresh rate or even 2K resolution may gradually become mainstream this year, this change is naturally very in line with the trend. But considering that the main frequency of 3.2GHz is really not low, the actual performance depends on the manufacturer’s adjustment.

In addition to the official announcement of Motorola, OPPO, OnePlus and Xiaomi have also indicated that they will soon launch products using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870 mobile platform, which may make up for the regret that domestic models do not have 865 Plus.
