Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 review: specs and price

In terms of mobile processors, it’s hard to deny the innovative advances that Qualcomm is making, especially when it comes to the Snapdragon 855 mobile chipset. This chipset is powered by a Hexagon processor and leading 7nm technology that allow for AI capabilities in smartphones. Qualcomm notes that the Hexagon processor packs three times the power of its predecessor.

Count on cinema-grade videography capabilities plus 4K HDR video playback, making videos and gaming experiences practically pop off the screen. For this mobile chipset, Qualcomm has also introduced their FastConnect 6200 subsystem, allowing for Wi-Fi 6 connectivity and integrated Bluetooth 5.1.

The Snapdragon 855 is also one of the first chipsets from Qualcomm to feature multi-gigabit 4G connectivity and 5G capabilities.

General info

1.Supports 64-bit
Qualcomm Snapdragon 855
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.
2.Has integrated graphics
Qualcomm Snapdragon 855
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
6.has 5G support
Qualcomm Snapdragon 855
The fifth-generation wireless technology delivers higher speeds and lower latency than the previous, fourth-generation tech.
7.GPU turbo

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
OpenGL ES is used for games on mobile devices such as smartphones. Newer versions support better graphics.
Some apps use OpenCL to apply the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.

Performance

1.CPU speed

1 x 2.84GHz & 3 x 2.42GHz & 4 x 1.78GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
3.Uses big.LITTLE technology
Qualcomm Snapdragon 855
Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores to maximize performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximize battery life.
4.Uses HMP
Qualcomm Snapdragon 855
Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP) is a more advanced version of big.LITTLE technology. In this setup, a processor can utilize all cores at the same time, or just a single core for low-intensity tasks. This can provide powerful performance or increased battery life respectively.
5.turbo clock speed

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
6.L2 cache
