The Snapdragon 805 chip is about to hit the markets in the coming months as we all know. A new benchmarks listing has now given us a better idea of what to expect from Qualcomm’s upcoming high end SoC, with mostly GPU related upgrades.
The folks from AnandTech decided to run a few benchmarks tests with the Qualcomm test unit (Mobile Development Platform) and it returned some very good results. The CPU on board which was running at 2.7 GHz is said to be only 6% faster than the current gen Snapdragon 801.
The GPU on the other hand (Adreno 420) reportedly showed a 20-50% increase in performance when compared with the Adreno 330, putting it ahead of the Apple iPad Air which boasts of the Apple A7 chip. The newest Adreno GPU is also expected to consume 20% less power compared to the predecessor, which is an added bonus.
Manufacturers can tweak the clock speed and performance of the CPU as well as the GPU according to their liking when they use the silicon for their upcoming devices. What’s given on the Mobile Development Platform is only to give developers and testers an idea of how things work with the next gen SoC.
