Qualcomm has already sent invitations to many domestic media, will hold the Snapdragon Technology Summit in Yidao, Hawaii on December 4th, is expected to be released A generation of flagship mobile chips, according to current information, it is likely to be named Snapdragon 8150.
Previously, some specifications of this chip have been exposed. The Snapdragon 8150 will be built on a 7nm process, using a large core, three large cores and four small core architectures at 2.84GHz, 2.4GHz and 1.78. GHz. It is also equipped with an NPU (Neural Network Unit) for handling AI tasks. The GPU is the Adreno 640, which is more than 20% higher than the 630 on the Snapdragon 845.
Qualcomm’s flagship processor is Snapdragon 845, Samsung 10nm LPP process production, the next generation model should be called 855, but Qualcomm will change the naming system on the new generation of processors, the new identity of Snapdragon 855 is Snapdragon 8150, but there is no official announcement yet, and there are many variables, so the article will have both names at the same time.
The Snapdragon 855 (8150) processor will also be upgraded to the 7nm process, TSMC foundry has been streamed earlier, recently Ann Bunny also announced the Snapdragon 855 (8150) processor score, a total score of 360,000 points, more than Huawei’s Kirin 980 processor is similar to the Apple A12 processor.
However, the architecture of the Snapdragon 855 (8150) processor is somewhat unusual. It is also a three-cluster core like Huawei’s Kirin 980, but it is different from Huawei’s 2 + 2 + 4 small architecture, Snapdragon 855 (8150) processor. It is a 1+3+4 architecture with frequencies of 2.84GHz, 2.4GHz, and 1.78GHz. The GPU is the Andreno 640, which is currently up to 20% higher than the Adreno 630 on the Snapdragon 845.
Qualcomm’s 1+3 core should also be based on the Cortex-A76 architecture. It is no longer completely self-developed as before. Therefore, the CPU score of Antutu is basically the same as that of Huawei Kirin 980. After all, the frequency and architecture of the two sides are very close. Do not open up the gap.
As for the GPU, the Snapdragon 855 (8150) processor has always had an advantage in the Android camp. The Andreno 640 has 20% better performance than the Snapdragon 845 Adreno 630. It is not a problem to open the gap with the Kirin 980, but with the Apple A12. Compared to still no chance to win, the GPU performance of the Apple processor is too strong.

In addition to the CPU and GPU units, the Snapdragon 855 (8150) processor will also integrate the NPU unit. The exact news is still unknown, but the AI Benchmark leaderboard, the Snapdragon 855 (8150) processor has now scored 22,000 points. It is far ahead of Snapdragon 845 and Kirin 980.
