Snapdragon 855 will support GPU driver update

In December last year, Qualcomm released a new generation of flagship processor Snapdragon 865 and the first mid-range processor Snapdragon 765G with integrated 5G chip, and Qualcomm announced that both chips can independently update GPU drivers. There are also many Snapdragon 865 flagship phones recently released. During this period, Qualcomm released driver updates for the Adreno 650 GPU.

Just yesterday, Qualcomm announced an Android GPU Inspector application jointly developed with Google. This application can help Adreno's GPU driver upgrades in order to improve graphics processing performance.

Although Qualcomm did not specify which processors support GPU driver updates, it has now launched GPU drivers for Google Pixel 4/4 XL, Samsung Note10 and Samsung S10. It is clear that the Snapdragon 855 processor supports driver updates.

After Google Pixel 4 XL updated the driver, the game's GPU utilization has been saved by 40%, and the new driver can provide faster frame rate, picture smoothness and many other upgrades.

All users of flagship mobile phones released last year seem to be able to persist for a few more years, and Qualcomm also promised to provide more device driver upgrades later.
