Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 processor reportedly enters production


While the unfortunate pandemic has affected businesses around the globe, Qualcomm seems to be optimistic about going ahead on the production of its upcoming high-end mobile processors.

According to new reports, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, or more known as TSMC, has officially started the production of the Snapdragon 875 processor that will be powering most of the upcoming flagship smartphones. The new chip is based on the impressive 5nm fabrication process and the silicon will also include the next-gen Snapdragon X60 5G modem support. It’s been reported that TSMC has increased its production capability of 5nm chips by 10% and will be able to produce almost 60,000 units per month.


While it’s estimated that Qualcomm will receive the Snapdragon 875 chipsets by September, there is no word on when the company will start to distribute the chips to all the smartphone makers. It should also be noted that Samsung is also expected to start its mass production of Exynos 992 processor by August 2020. Rumor has it that Samsung plans to use the Exynos 992 chip on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 20 smartphone.

With every chipmaker now focusing on 5nm chips, expect the new processors to achieve an improvement in performance at lower power consumption. Most of the Android smartphone makers use Snapdragon processors and they will be saving their best devices for the Snapdragon 875. Rumors suggest that the Snapdragon 875 will be configured as a 1+3+4 setup. The chip is said to consist of 4 x Cortex A55, 3 x Cortex A78, and 1x Cortex X1 super core. The new Cortex X1 is designed to deliver about a 30% performance boost over the previous generation Cortex A77. Additionally, the Cortex A78 mentioned earlier also delivers about 20% performance uplift over the Cortex A77. A combination of the new high-performance cores should give a major advantage over the upcoming competing processors from Apple, Samsung, Huawei, and other chipmakers.
