Qualcomm launches an whole new Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 SoC
Qualcomm announced the launch of its new upper mid-range chipset dubbed Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2.
While there was no Snapdragon 7+ Gen 1 and no Snapdragon 7 Gen 2, the predecessor Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 made it to a handful of devices only.
The latest Snapdragon SoC is promised to have a substantial improvement in terms of performance and power efficiency as compared to Snapdragon 7 Gen 1.
The main Kyro CPU has a max clocking speed of 2.91GHz and the package delivers over 50% improved performance from that of Qualcomm's SD7 Gen 1.
The integrated unnamed Adreno GPU on the other hand, serves with twice the performance increase.
The SoC provides a modest efficiency gain in various scenarios of about 13% although not a notable but decent improvement.
As usual the Qualcomm announcements lack detailed specs about the CPU and the GPU package.
The wait for the devices running with the latest silicon won't be long as the devices are expected to arrive as early as this month.
The platform has features of Auto Variable Rate Shading that render the main scenes in high resolution and leaves the background in low resolution to save on power and resources while gaming.
The volumetric Rendering debuted with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 platform also makes on board with Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2.
The ISP also gets a boost as it's upgraded to an 18-bit Triple ISP for improved low-light photography by stacking 30 images to process one image.
When it comes to AI, it can offer a 2x performance boost, while providing a 40 % battery saving per watt.
