Snapdragon 662 vs Snapdragon 460: Specifications Comparison & Benchmark Scores

Both chipsets are fabricated on 11nm LPP process

This year Qualcomm has launched two of its new processors which will be housed in entry-level and mid-range smartphones. The Snapdragon 662 and Snapdragon 460 which will be housed in affordable 4G smartphones have been announced in January 2020. The Moto G9 which has already been launched in the Indian Market is housing the Snapdragon 662 processor. Whereas the Vivo Y20, Vivo Y20i and Oppo A53 are packed with the Snapdragon 460 chip. Regarding the camera, display, and connectivity, both the processors have quite similar specifications but when it comes to the CPU and GPU units of the chips there lies the main differences. Therefore, in this article, we have made a detailed comparison of Snapdragon 662 and the Snapdragon 460 processor stating their pros and cons.

Snapdragon 662 vs Snapdragon 460 Comparison

Manufacturing Process:

The Snapdragon 662 and the Snapdragon 440 processor both are fabricated on 11nm LPP Process Technology. So in terms of power efficiency, both the processor will get the same ranking.

CPU:

The Snapdragon 662 chip is an octa-core processor built with four Kyro 260 Gold ARM Cortex-A73 and four Kyro 260 Silver ARM Cortex-A53 architectures. The A73 performance architecture is clocked at 2.00 GHz and A53 efficiency architecture is clocked at 1.80 GHz. On the other hand, Snapdragon 460 is manufactured with four Kyro 240 Gold ARM Cortex-A53 and four Kyro 240 Silver architectures. The former architecture is assigned to run at 1.80 GHz and the latter architecture is clocked at a frequency of 1.61 GHz. Hence, the CPU of Snapdragon 662 shows 11% higher clock speed than that of the Snapdragon 460. This will results in smoother user experiences in the 662 processor than the 460 processor. Therefore, we can conclude that the Snapdragon 662 will give better performance than the Snapdragon 460. So in terms of CPU performance, the Snapdragon 662 is the clear winner.

GPU:

Both the processors are built with the Adreno 600 series GPU Architectures with the GPU name Adreno 610. Though both the processors have Adreno 610 GPU unit, Qualcomm has set a maximum frequency of 950MHz for the Snapdragon 662 SoC. Whereas the company has set a maximum frequency of 600MHz for the Snapdragon 460 SoC. Hence, in terms of graphics rendering speed and graphics quality, the Snapdragon 662 processor will be more efficient and powerful.

Camera:

Both the Snapdragon processors have similar features on camera sensors. The dual camera sensors support upto 16MP at 30fps. While the single-camera sensor supports upto 48MP at 30fps. Both the processor have slow-motion video capture in 1080p at 60fps. 4K videos are also supported by the two processors. The only difference in both the processors is Snapdragon 662 supports video playback in 4K format at 60fps while the Snapdragon 460 supports video playback in 4K format at 30fps. So we can say that Snapdragon 662 has better camera features than the Snapdragon 460 processor.

Display:

The maximum display resolution on the two processors is 2520 X 1080. Both the processors support Full HD+ display with a 60 Hz refresh rate. Hence, in terms of display its a tie between the processors.

Connectivity:

Talking about the connectivity features of the processors, both of them has X11 LTE modem which supports dual LTE standby. The maximum download speed is upto 390Mbps while the maximum upload speed is 150Mbps. None of the processors supports 5G connectivity.

Benchmark Scores

Coming to the benchmark test, Snapdragon 460 powered Oppo A53 has managed to get 215 points in the single-core test and 1152 points in the multi-core test. On the other hand, Snapdragon 662 powered Moto G9 Play in the single-core test scored 313 points while in the multi-core test the chipset has recorded 1370 points.
