Qualcomm today announced its latest chipset for the mobile market, the Snapdragon 768G 5G. The chipset is a follow-up to the semiconductor maker’s Snapdragon 765G, that announced last year in Hawaii.
The Snapdragon 768G 5G is a part of the brand’s mobile gaming chipset series and comes with several of the latest features that is warranted a mobile processor. Like the 765 and 765G, the 768G is based on a 7nm die lithography and a hexacore of Kryo 475 CPUs. Running at a maximum clockspeed of 2.8GHz. It’s also still using an Adreno 620 GPU, but unlike its predecessor, Qualcomm has managed to bump up the performance on the new SoC by 15%.
That same performance boost is also applied to the onboard Qualcomm AI Engine. What this essentially means is that the chipset is more efficient in managing power while gaming, which in turn enables it to conserve battery power and be more efficient.
Beyond these points, everything else on the 768G 5G looks more or less the same as its predecessor. It still gets the same Snapdragon X52 modem that supports 5G connectivity on both the mmWave and sub-6GHz wavelength. As well as standalone and non-standalone 5G networks.
As for availability, the chipset will make its debut with the Xiaomi Redmi K30 5G Racing Edition, which is expected to debut today.
