Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 865 becomes the new everything champion

Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 865 is #1 in CPU and GPU performance, AI, 5G, and more

By Anthony Garreffa from 4 days, 7 hours ago

Qualcomm has made its next-gen Snapdragon 865 chip official at its annual Snapdragon Summit, and while they won't deep dive into what makes it tick until tomorrow... we know that it is the most kick ass SoC ever made.


The new Snapdragon 865 takes things to the next level over the already impressive Snapdragon 855, with the new SoC taking out the #1 positions in virtually every category not just against its predecessor, but every Qualcomm competitor, too.

CPU, GPU, RF, modem, AI, and the camera -- Qualcomm dominates with its new Snapdragon 865. The new Snapdragon 865 supports up to 200-megapixel camera sensors, so we should expect some insane smartphones next year with 200MP cameras that will blow us away, again.

I need to get a Snapdragon 865-powered device in my hands to be able to judge this all for myself, but Qualcomm doesn't disappoint so expect some new next-gen gaming smartphones powered by the new Snapdragon 865 in 2020.

I can see ASUS or Razer releasing a new gaming smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 865 in the very near future, maybe we'll begin to hear about these new phones at CES 2020 which is only around the corner.
