Qualcomm brings 5G processor for games

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765 G, which introduced not, too long ago is coming up with new upgrades. The chipmaker is already announcing a follow-up with a few minor upgrades, called Snapdragon 768G.

According to report, the new 768G shares much of its underlying tech with the older 765G. It inherits the 5G-enabled X52 modem, which supports both sub-6GHz and mmWave bands. It also supports the Spectra 355 ISP and the Hexagon 696 DSP.

Phones using this chip can support an FHD+ 120Hz screen or go all the way up to QHD+ resolution, though only at the standard 60Hz refresh rate.

That ‘G’ in 768G stands for gaming, as Qualcomm has slightly overclocked its parts to gain an edge over the older processor. The Snapdragon 768G uses the same Kyro 475 CPU that is now clocked at 2.8GHz, up from 2.4GHz on the 765G.

The Adreno 620 GPU, which promises an additional 15 pc improvement over the already overclocked (versus the 765) graphics processor of the 765G.

Meanwhile, Xiaomi’s Redmi K30 5G Racing Edition is much like the standard K30 5G but uses the newer Qualcomm chip for improved CPU and GPU performance, keeping everything else unchanged.
