Snapdragon 765(G) vs Snapdragon 730(G): 5 main upgrades

Through the specs comparison and Qualcomm official introduction, we conclude that the new Snapdragon 765(G) processor offers 5 main upgrades.

Upgrade 1. 5G network support

One of the great improvements of the Snapdragon 765(G) is that it is Qualcomm’s first mid-range processor to support 5G network.

Snapdragon 765(G) with integrated 5G modem

The 5G network on the Snapdragon 765(G) is achieved via the integrated 5G modem Snapdragon X52, which gives it the most complete 5G connection capability under the current 3GPP definition. It not only supports NSA&SA dual-mode 5G connection, but also supports Sub-6G and millimeter wave dual connection, which can be used normally in any 5G network environment in the world. Moreover, the Snapdragon 765(G) can offer up to 3.7Gbps download speed and 1.6Gbps upload speed under 5G network.

However, the predecessor Snapdragon 730(G) doesn’t support 5G network.

Upgrade 2. 20% boost in CPU performance

The new Snapdragon 765(G) is an Octa-core processor made with Samsung’s 7nm EUV manufacturing process. It adopts tri-cluster CPU structure which consists of 1x Cortex-A76 with the clock speed of 2.3/2.4GHz, a Cortex-A76 with the clock speed of 2.2GHz and 6 Cortex A55 with the clock speed of 1.8GHz.

Snapdragon 765(G) adopts Kryo 475 CPU

While the Snapdragon 730(G) is fueled by an 8nm process and adopt dual-cluster structure, which consists of 2x Kryo 470 Gold with the clock speed of 2.2 GHz and 6x Kryo 470 Silver with the clock speed of 1.8 GHz.

Through comparison, we can find that the new Snapdragon 765(G) offers higher CPU clock speed and more advanced process technology. This will result in a better performance and battery life for smartphones. And Qualcomm officially introduces that the new Snapdragon 730(G) is improved by 20% in performance compared to the predecessor, and its power consumption is reduced by 35% compared to the 8nm Snapdragon 730(G).

Upgrade 3. 20% improved GPU performance

The Snapdragon 765(G) adopts Adreno 620 GPU, while the Snapdragon 730(G) adopts Adreno 618 GPU.

In the off-screen test of the three classic events of GFXBench Manhattan 3.0/3.1 and racing, Snapdragon 765G showed a big advantage over Snapdragon 730, with racing car leading 34% off-screen, Manhattan 3.1 leading 36%, and the tallest Manhattan 3.0 leading off-screen 38%, both higher than the theoretical figure of 32%.
