The top-end mobile processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 not only got 5G modem and the improvements in AI computing. The product also received a significant performance boost graphics component of the processor.
It is reported 4PDA.
Graphics accelerator Adreno 640 was 20% faster than its counterpart in the composition of the Snapdragon platform 845. Update hardware chipset significantly speeded up the loading of games on mobile devices. In addition, the architecture allows Snapdragon 855 games with support for virtual and augmented reality function with 6 degrees of freedom to enhance gaming experience of user.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 officially introduced
Increase productivity in these applications became possible thanks to the workload distribution across GPU, CPU auxiliary Hexagon and an image processing unit (ISP).
One of the main chips of the chipset has become the technology of Snapdragon Elite Gaming. Software and hardware from Qualcomm includes support for graphics libraries Vulkan 1.1, which provides applications with the possibility of direct control of operations without third-party GPU drivers.

As a result, the loss of personnel in mobile games can be reduced by 90%, and the picture will become smoother. Particularly noticeable performance improvement is in multiplayer games.
Another advantage of the Vulcan API – high energy efficiency. In comparison with a software interface to OpenGL is achieved 20% savings in battery consumption of the flagship smartphone based on the new Snapdragon.
Most smartphone displays are not inferior to proper monitors
The computing power of the platform enough to run games with HDR support and cinematographic post-processing of the image. The company compared the latest smartphone to traditional monitors, because the actual picture quality of mobile displays is not inferior to many desktop solutions. If necessary, the image from the mobile device can be displayed on the external screen even in 4K.
An important component of the online-releases – connection stability. Technology Snapdragon Elite Gaming includes a built-in system quality of service (QoS), which prioritizes game packets, not allowing third-party applications to “pull” traffic for yourself.
Qualcomm Snapdragon Elite Gaming offers high-quality rendering
Significantly improved the energy efficiency of the new platform. Despite the increase in graphics power the device based on Snapdragon 855 is able to work longer on a single battery charge than its predecessor.
The emergence of a new gaming smartphone with Snapdragon Elite Gaming is expected in 2019 with the start of commercial deliveries Snapdragon 855.
