Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 SoC may launch on December 1 to compete with Samsung Exynos 2100
Snapdragon is a suite of system on a chip (SoC) semiconductor products for mobile devices designed and marketed by Qualcomm Technologies Inc. The Snapdragon central processing unit (CPU) uses the ARM RISC. A single SoC may include multiple CPU cores, an Adreno graphics processing unit (GPU), a Snapdragon wireless modem, a Hexagon Digital signal processor (DSP), a Qualcomm Spectra Image Signal Processor (ISP), and other software and hardware to support a smartphone’s global positioning system (GPS), camera, video, audio, gesture recognition, and AI acceleration.
Now Qualcomm is expected to launch the Snapdragon 875 SoC, the rumored successor to Snapdragon 865 on December 1, 2020. However, the company has not yet announced the launch but has started sending out press invites saying that the event will reveal the “latest and greatest Snapdragon news”. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 is said to be featured with ARM’s latest X1 high-performance CPU core. This would put Samsung’s home-grown Exynos 2100 at a significant disadvantage in terms of single-threaded performance.
The Snapdragon 875 will likely utilize a single X1 as its large core, for optimal single-threaded performance, together with a number of ARM A78 and ARM A55 cores. Well, if you look at the X1, it is based on the ARM A78 architecture but redesigned to maximize performance over power efficiency. Moreover, ARM claims a roughly 30 percent performance uplift over the A77. But it is not yet clear exactly how much faster it is relative to the A78.
Qualcomm has not yet shared any other details of the upcoming event so far. It was revealed that the launch of the Snapdragon 875 SoC will be a digital event of which invite was shared by Qualcomm on Weibo. It’s also yet to be confirmed if the upcoming from Qualcomm will be a 5G chipset and if it will be among the first chipsets to use ARM’s latest, high-performance Cortex-X1 core.
