Qualcomm Revs 5G Gaming Phones with Snapdragon 768G
Qualcomm has introduced a new high-end chip for gaming phones: the Snapdragon 768G. As implied by the numbering, the 768G is very similar to the 765G announced late last year, but with improved performance. The 768G has a higher clock speed for its primary core (2.8 GHz vs. 2.4 GHz), 15% more performance from its GPU, and support for Adreno Updateable GPU Drivers. The chip is otherwise similar to the Snapdragon 765 and 765G, enough so that it can be a drop-in replacement for either, in both hardware and software. Like the 765 chips, it offers processor cores and a 5G modem in one integrated chip. The first phone to use the 786G will be the the Redmi K30 5G Racing Edition, announced today.
