Snapdragon 670 GPU Performance Is Amazing


Snapdragon 670

Qualcomm is scheduled to release the Snapdragon 670 chipset sometime this year which it intends to ship out for mid-range devices. This processor which has previously appeared on Geekbench have now surfaced on RenderScript and the GPU performance was revealed. Snapdragon 670 comes with Adreno 620 GPU and from RenderScript performance, this GPU scored 6404 points. This is amazing because it almost equals the GPU performance of 2016flagship SoC – Snapdragon 820.

Comparing the performance values of Snapdragon 670 to that of Snapdragon 660, there is about a 35% improvement on SD 670. Please note that these values are not always a true representation of the GPU’s final performance. Nevertheless, getting this result is quite encouraging. Qualcomm has always been tight-lipped about the technical details of the Adreno GPU, thus we do not know exactly what the Snapdragon 670 used to boost its performance but this performance and improvement are definitely a huge leap forward.

Though nothing has been confirmed, speculations have it that the Snapdragon 670 is equipped with a 4x Kryo 360 custom cores and 4x Kryo 385 custom cores and these cores have 2Ghz and 1.6 GHz frequencies respectively. In addition, the Andreno 620 GPU will come with a Snapdragon X16 Cat. 16 LTE modem which will be able to achieve 1GB download speed and 150 Mbps upload speed. Geekbench rates the Snapdragon 670 quite high as its single core performance has a score of 1863 points while the multi-core performance racked up 5256 points. With this performance, we will hopefully see some flagship-like mid-range devices sport this chip.

    Well it will really be a uper mid range SoC it’s expected good 50~55% upgrade on GPU front (192 ALU unit design vs 128 on A510~12 & 256 on A35) along with 23~31% on CPU one (compared to A73, A72) but it ain’t gonna be cheap…

    So the Adreno 620 is basically a slower (a bit) Adreno 530?

    So SD670 is gaming oriented…
    I hope they designed a more energy efficient and cooler chipset.
    Qualcomm used to degrade performance on continuous high CPU usage (as gaming) due to thermal issues.

      It uses the 10nm process so yes it’ll have amazing battery life. But we won’t see it on any good phone anytime soon. I suppose most phone manufacturers will use this chip in 2019 and the price will be around $450 to 500.
