The first tests of the Snapdragon SoC 835 show a huge performance increase from a GPU Adreno 540
As you know, the next flagship SoC Qualcomm will be released under the name Snapdragon 835. Officially we were told about it very little. In particular, she will be on 10-nanometer process technology at the facilities of Samsung.
Now in the database GFXBench appeared a device for developers based on Snapdragon 835. This is indicated by the use of GPU Adreno 540. The device we are interested in a little. But thanks to him we know that system-on-chip includes eight processor cores. Senior cluster is running at 2.2 GHz, but it does not mean that this frequency will have serial SoC.
We can also look at the possibility of a new GPU. In particular, in the test T-Rex (Offscreen), the device demonstrates to 115.2 K/s. For comparison, the Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus with Snapdragon SoC 821 (Adreno 530) shows «only» 81. That is, the performance gain of the GPU is very high. The only question is, why all this performance if it is simply nowhere to use it.
