Although Qualcomm has not yet been named, many netizens or media tend to use “snapdragon 895” or “snapdragon 898” to refer to the new flagship SOC with part number sm8450. However, as the naming of 800 series numbers comes to an end, Qualcomm may make unexpected changes. Back to the product itself, a piece of information about the details of snapdragon 895 architecture disappeared.

According to the news, Xiaolong 895 innovates and adopts a four cluster architecture of 1 + 3 + 2 + 2, in which kryo 780 super core is based on cortex-x2, kryo 780 large core is based on cortex-710, kryo 780 energy efficiency large core is based on cortex-510 (high frequency), and kryo 780 energy efficiency small core is based on cortex-a510 (low frequency). Cortex-x2 / a710 / A510 are the latest public version designs of arm based on 64 bit V9 instruction set, replacing X1 / A78 / A55 respectively.

In terms of running points, geekbench 5 has about 1250 single cores and 4000 multi cores, and Antu has surpassed the 1 million mark for the first time. According to the preliminary results of gb5, referring to the fast technology ladder list, the single core is about 10% higher than that of snapdragon 888, and the multi-core is about 6%. That is to say, the single core catches up with apple A13, the multi-core is equal to Apple A14, and Antu rabbit is nearly 20% higher than that of snapdragon 888.

Of course, first of all, the authenticity of the disclosure itself needs to be verified. In addition, Xiaolong 895 is expected to be released by the end of this year, and there is still a lot of room for tuning. After all, the public version x2 given by arm at that time was 16% higher than that of x1. Recently, it has been reported that snapdragon 895 will continue to be manufactured based on Samsung 5nm process.
