Snapdragon 888+ is a powerful processor that will power most flagship phones from the second half of 2021. Today we learned about its specifications – there is strength. Good luck chilling this monster.
We’re nearing the end of the first half of 2021, so it’s time for the first leaks about the Snapdragon 888+. Qualcomm will update its main processor and get it working again, drawing more power out of it. Today we got acquainted with its capabilities in the standard.
The Geekbench benchmark so far shows that there will be very few changes. The biggest difference is the overclocking of the base Cortex-X1 clock to 3 GHz (2.84 GHz in the Snapdragon 888). However, this translates into noticeable results on the test. It’s comparable to those that featured the Snapdragon 865 and 865+, which is a reasonable benchmark.
Where else can we expect improvements? Experience shows that Qualcomm usually improves the performance of the graphics chip as well, but the biggest problem with the Snapdragon 888+ may be exactly the same as on the base model without the need for clocking.
It is, of course, related to the increase in temperature and the associated decrease in performance over time. These are not only problems that the most demanding users encounter, because the following tests of the flagship of this year clearly show the real problem. This reminds us of the times of the Snapdragon 810, which is probably the worst system mentioned in the history of the manufacturer.
