Snapdragon 865 vs 765 vs 765G: Specifications Comparison

Snapdragon 865 has separate 2nd Gen X55 5G modem whereas Snapdragon 765/765G has integrated X52 5G modem

Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon announced their new mobile processor line on December 3, 2019, at Annual Snapdragon Tech Summit 2019 in Hawaii. The latest chipsets include Snapdragon 865, Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 765G.  As 865 SoC is Qualcomm’s flagship processor, so obviously, Snapdragon 865 will beat both Snapdragon 765 and 765G in terms of performance. So, here we are not going to tell you which processor is the best between the three SoCs but will compare their specifications and advantages.

Snapdragon 865 vs 765 vs 765G Comparison

Process:

All three SoCs are manufactured using 7nm process. But, Snapdragon 865 is built on TSMC’s 2nd generation 7nm+ node while both Snapdragon 765 and 765G uses 7nm EUV fabrication process from Samsung.

CPU:

Snapdragon 865 uses 1+3+4 core combination on its CPU that includes one Kryo 585 (ARM Cortex A77) prime core clocked at 2.84GHz. There are three Kryo 585 (ARM Cortex A77) performance cores at 2.4GHz. The remaining four efficiency cores i.e. Kryo 385 (ARM Cortex A55) clocked at 1.8GHz. On the other hand, we have one primary Kryo 475 core on Snapdragon 765 which is based on ARM Cortex-A76 and clocked at 2.3GHz. Snapdragon 765G has also the same single prime core but it is clocked at 2.4GHz. The remaining 7 cores of both SoCs are same which includes one Kryo 475 (ARM Cortex-A76) core at 2.2GHz for mid-performance and six ARM Cortex-A55 efficiency cores at 1.8GHz.

5G Modem:

All three processors are 5G ready. The new flagship Snapdragon 865 SoC comes with separate 2nd Gen Snapdragon X55 modem-RF (radio frequency) system whereas both higher mid-range processors Snapdragon 765 and 765G comes with integrated X52 5G modem. Separate 5G modem means more expensive and power-hungry smartphones than a built-in or integrated solution. So, Snapdragon 765/765G’s integrated 5G solution brings an advantage in case of lower power consumption.

Network:

In terms of download speed and network support, X52 5G modem on Snapdragon 765 & 765G provides download speed up to 3.7 Gbps and support mmWave, Sub 6-GHz, SA/NSA dual-mode 5G, TDD & FDD. On the other hand, 2ng Gen X55 5G modem on Snapdragon 865 provides download speed up to 7.5 Gbps and support sub-6 GHz, mmWave, NSA, SA, TDD & FDD.

AI Performance:

The Snapdragon 865 has Hexagon 698 with 5th Gen AI Engine that provides 15 TOPS (Trillion Operations per Second) AI performance. Qualcomm says Snapdragon 865 SoC’s AI performance is double compared to their previous flagship Snapdragon 855 SoC that has the 4th Gen AI Engine. On the other hand, 765 & 765G comes with Hexagon 698 with 5th Gen AI Engine that provides 5.5 TOPS (765G) AI performance.

Camera:

The flagship Qualcomm chipset 865’s Dual 14-bit Spectra 480 ISP support cameras up to 200MP in resolution. Also, it supports 8K 30FPS video, 64MP 4K video, Dolby vision video capture, Unlimited 960FPS video capture and 2 Gigapixel per second ISP processing. On the other hand, Dual 14-bit Spectra 355 ISP on 765/ 765G chipset support single camera up to 36MP with ZSL or Up to 192MP and dual camera up to 22MP with ZSL. Also, it supports 4K HDR @ 30 fps video, Slow motion up to 720p @ 480 fps.

GPU:

In GPU performance, Snapdragon 865 SoC’s Adreno GPU 650 is 25% more powerful compared to its predecessor. It comes with support for Qualcomm’s Elite Gaming Suite for the improved gaming experience. While both Snapdragon 765 & 765G comes with the latest Adreno 620 GPU that brings 20% better performance and efficiency. As the 765G is a gaming-centric processor so we will see some of the features of the Elite Gaming Suite. Also, 765G offers 10% faster graphics rendering than the Snapdragon 765.
