Snapdragon introduced the new segment of processors namely Snapdragon 710. The Snapdragon 710 series lies between the midrange 600 series and flagship 800 series.
Consequently, the processor is better than the 600 series and less powerful as compared to the 800 series. So here’s a detailed comparison of Snapdragon 710 with Snapdragon 660 and Snapdragon 710 processors in terms of display, camera, and processing power.
The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor has eight (octa-cores) of Kryo 260 cores. These have a clock-speed of 2.2Ghz. The processor comes with a capable Adreno 616 GPU. Well, the Snapdragon 660 has the exact same processing chip, but it lacks behind in terms of GPU performance. You get Adreno 512 GPU for graphics. The performance, rendering and overall compatibility of Snapdragon 710 are much better than Snapdragon 660.
You get octa-core custom Kryo 385 cores clocked at 2.8GHz on the Snapdragon 845. The processor is coupled with Adreno 630 GPU. Two major advantages of Adreno 630 GPU are improved graphics rendering and faster visual processing. Snapdragon 710 and Snapdragon 845 processors support Qualcomm’s Hexagon 685 Digital signal processor (DSP). DSP dedicated to Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Another major factor that differentiates these processors are the maximum display resolution they support theoretically. The Snapdragon 660 can power a maximum of 2560 x 1200 pixels smartphone display.
While the new Snapdragon 710 supports a maximum of Quad HD+ display resolution (up to 3040 x 1440 pixels). Well, the Snapdragon 845 easily outperforms these two processors, as it can power up to two displays with a maximum resolution of 2400 x 2400 pixels.
The Snapdragon 660 boats a 14-bit Qualcomm Spectra 160 ISP, that can capture pictures of up to 24MP. Well, you get an improved Qualcomm Spectra 250 ISP. This image signal processor can capture up to 32MP of pictures and record 4K UHD videos coupled with EIS.
Lastly, the Snapdragon 845 processor has Qualcomm Spectra 280 ISP that supports 32 MP and up to 16MP of dual camera support. Apart from having all the features of Snapdragon 710 you can also record slow-motion videos of either 720p (HD) or 1080p (Full HD) resolutions at 480 and 240 frames per second.
So as a conclusion Snapdragon 710 has similarities to Snapdragon 660 in terms of processing power. While it has similarities to Snapdragon 845 in other features like GPU, display, and camera. Do share your thoughts and opinions in the comments section.
