Qualcomm gaming-specific high-end CPUs available at affordable prices

Qualcomm AI Day: Snapdragon 665, 730, 730G mobile platforms announced with focus on camera, AI and gaming

There is the Snapdragon 665 which brings new photography features to the mid-range category and there is the Snapdragon 730 and Snapdragon 730G which bring new generation AI, improvement in performance and even gaming features in the case of the latter.

These latest additions have been created to "exceed customer expectations" on delivering experiences in artificial intelligence, gaming, camera, and performance. By significantly reducing Wi-Fi latency, the devices supported by Snapdragon 730G can run multiplayer games with less blips or glitches.

Qualcomm unveiled today the Snapdragon 730, 730G and 665 Mobile Platforms.

The Snapdragon 8-series processors are used in top-of-the-line, flagship-level smartphones. Both the chipsets feature Kryo 470 CPU featuring 2 performance cores clocked at 2.2GHz and 6 efficiency cores clocked at 1.8GHz.

The Snapdragon 730 chipset has an Adreno 618 GPU firing up the graphics and bringing a 25% increase in its performance. The Snapdragon 730 also comes with Qualcomm's fourth-generation AI Engine for improved on-device data processing for the camera, gaming, voice and security applications. Key, it has up to 15-percent faster graphics rendering over the Snapdragon 730, thanks to a faster clock speed for the Adreno 618 GPU.

However, the Snapdragon 665 has built-in Hexagon Vector Extensions, and an onboard Hexagon 686 DSP coprocessor is capable of up to two times faster on-device AI processing. The Snapdragon 665 and Snapdragon 730 were announced by the tech giant yesterday.

Snapdragon 730 uses Kryo 470 cores, at 2.2GHz. The chipset also has a Snapdragon X15 LTE Modem which can theoretically offer speeds of 800 Mbps. Qualcomm is also promising noise reduction technology for its ISP, and cameras powered by the Snapdragon 665 will be able to offer 3D face unlocking as well - another feature now confined to high-end phones. Other features and enhancements continue to remain the same as the Snapdragon 730. Other connectivity features include dual-band Wi-Fi b/g/n/ac with MU-MIMO, Bluetooth 5.0 (with aptX Adaptive and LE). It has Kryo 260 cores as opposed to newer Kryo 360 cores.

Gaming: For gaming enthusiasts, Snapdragon 665 is created to allow users to play latest and popular games with fast frame rates, super smooth interactions, surround-sound audio and extremely realistic graphics. Of particular interest is the new Snapdragon 730G, an iteration designed specifically with gamers in mind. Imaging is catered for by the ISP which enables fast and efficient computer vision, 4K HDR capture, depth sensing and support for up to triple cameras.

At first glance, you'd be forgiven for questioning the differences between the Snapdragon 730 and the Snapdragon 730G. Lastly, there's a motion-smoothing "jank reducer" feature that helps minimise stutter for games running at 30 frames per second.

Coming to optics, the new Snapdragon chip supports camera resolution up to 48-megapixels with support for triple camera setups and 5X optical zoom.
