Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888+chipset consists of octa-core ARM processor cores clocked at 3.0 GHz. Introducing its flagship Snapdragon 888 last December, Qualcomm is preparing to take the segment a little higher. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ chipset, which will bring life to high-end smartphones, appeared in performance tests. According to the information in the Geekbench database, the Cortex-X1 high-performance core is overclocked to 3 GHz compared to SD888. The eight-core chip, customized by ARMv8, consists of quad-core processors at 1.80 GHz, three cores at 2.42 GHz, and single-core processors running at 3.00 GHz.
Geekbench test results of Snapdragon 888+ chip revealed
When we look at the synthetic test results performed on a device with 6GB memory capacity on the Android 11 operating system, we see that it scored 3704 points in the multi-core test and 1171 points in the single-core test. The chip, which makes communication smarter and more intuitive, promises professional-quality photography features thanks to Qualcomm’s artificial intelligence engine. It also comes with Snapdragon Elite Gaming features for an enhanced gaming experience.
The chipset, codenamed Lahaina, is expected to hit the market in the second quarter of this year. Finally, don’t forget to mention your thoughts on the Snapdragon 888+ in the comments section below.
Snapdragon 888 Chipset Was Introduced Last December
Qualcomm said the Snapdragon 888 chipset houses the third generation of the Elite Gaming platform that offers “the most significant upgrade in Adreno GPU performance”. Also, the sixth-generation artificial intelligence algorithm, built on the Hexagon processor, offers 26 TOPS computing capacity. So, for a slight comparison, the Snapdragon 865 chip had 15 TOPS power, and Apple’s M1 chip had 11 TOPS power. In addition, the chipset promises high energy savings with Qualcomm’s third-generation Snapdragon X60 5G modem.
It stated that the chip, which supports Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 communication technologies for local wireless connectivity, will triple the future of photography. So, turn smartphones into professional-quality cameras. Thanks to the advanced signal processor called The Spectra ISP, it said that smartphones with Snapdragon 888 can take 2.7 gigapixel photos per second, which equivalent to taking 120 photos at 12MP resolution.
