Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865+ Breaks the 3Ghz Barrier

The ROG Phone 3 will be the first to use the new processor

Just like what it did last year when it launched an updated Snapdragon 855 processor, Qualcomm continues the tradition with the unveiling of the Snapdragon 865+.

The major change on the Snapdragon 865+ is the more powerful Kryo 585 Prime core, which now runs at 3.1Ghz. This makes it 10% better in CPU performance compared to the Snapdragon 865. On the GPU side, the Adreno 650 also runs at higher clock speeds, providing for 10% better GPU performance.

Another key change on the Snapdragon 865+ is the FastConnect 6900 chip, which supports WiFi 6E. With the new chip, the Snapdragon 865+ is capable of download speeds of up to 3.2Gbps along with an under 3ms latency. The chip also has support for Bluetooth 5.2, and aptX Adaptive Codec.

Like its non-plus sibling, the Snapdragon 865+ uses an external X55 5G modem that delivers global 5G connectivity, along with the same ISP and DSP and support for Quick Charge 4.0+.

ASUS’ ROG Phone 3 is confirmed to be the first phone to use the new processor, along with the upcoming Lenovo Legion Gaming phone.
