Qualcomm announces Snapdragon 855 Plus with 15% faster graphics and even more powerful CPU

Qualcomm has just officialized its latest mobile processor, which comes as a slightly turbinated version of Snapgradon 855, chipset presented at the end of last year by the manufacturer.

The Snapdragon 855 Plus, the new platform brings improvements in graphics rendering speed, performance and also 5G performance, with the first device to be shipped with it being the upcoming ASUS ROG Phone II.

Qualcomm's newest technology delivers 15% more GPU and higher CPU clock speeds, with the frequency at 2.96 GHz - the original model was at 2.84GHz.

The new SoC is designed for gamer smartphones and will also offer, of course, high-speed 5G connectivity (X50 modem) and features like artificial intelligence and virtual reality. It also comes equipped with the X24 LTE modem for 4G connectivity.

The first models to bring the Snapdrgaon 855 Plus will hit the market by the end of the year. According to Kedar Kondap, vice president of product management at Qualcomm:

The Snapdragon 855 Plus will elevate the concept for smartphone gamers with improved CPU and GPU performance.

ASUS will kick off the adoption of the new platform in its ROG Phone II, which also features an AMOLED 90Hz screen and a feature called AirTriggers, which are touch-sensitive corners that can be used as extra buttons in games .

The arrival of the new processor aims to "warm up" the market for mobile devices that, in recent years, is still a bit of news.

As users increasingly take time to upgrade their smartphones, components with even better processing power and performance may actually be something to appeal to consumers, especially the niche that is a fan of games.

It is worth mentioning that Qualcomm also introduced a few days ago an input processor , the 215 that, interestingly, came to market without the Snapdragon brand.
