The Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 It is manufactured following a 4nm process and replaces the Snapdragon 695, improving all its features. This is achieved with the addition of an octa-core processor (4 at 2.2 GHz and 4 at 1.8 GHz) which increases performance by 35%, while the Adreno GPU has support for variable rate shading and features improved performance. 30% yield. On the other hand, the chipset accepts LPDDR5 memories (22 GB/s) and its integrated X62 modem can connect to the 5G network (Sub-6 + mmWave).
It is also worth noting that the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 has a new evolution of Hexagon, the digital signal processor or DSP that takes care of artificial intelligence tasks. For its part, the photographic system in charge of the image processor or ISP is supported by a 108 megapixel sensor, two 25 and 16 megapixels or three 13 megapixels.
The Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 intended for the entry-level (or low) range has not received as much love as its older brother, so it must settle for minor updates to replace the Snapdragon 480. For example, the octa-core CPU (2 to 2.0 GHz + 6 to 1.8 GHz) improves its performance by 15% compared to the previous generation, while the Adreno GPU promises a performance increase of up to 10%. The memory controller remains at LPDDR4X and that means no bandwidth improvements.
At the connectivity level, the Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 uses the same modem as its predecessor to be able to connect to the LTE and 5G network, but it does not support mmWave. Despite this, its speed when downloading and uploading content is higher. Regarding the ISP, the improvement is remarkable if we take into account that it is very similar to that of the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1. Finally, mention that the manufacturing process of the Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 is 6nm.
