Snapdragon 680 noticed in Geekbench, is perhaps a 2+6 model of the 710
Early indications are that the Snapdragon 710 is a success with telephone makers, however Qualcomm has extra chips within the works. A Snapdragon 680 was noticed in Geekbench, which will probably be a boon for future mid-range telephones.
The CPU is listed as having six cores, which is probably going a 2 + four configuration as weve seen earlier than within the Snapdragon 650 and 808. Do understand that the identify will not be last for instance, the S710 was initially 670.
Which is to say that this can be a parred down model of the 710. The clockspeed of the massive cores 2.15 GHz matches each the Kryo 260 within the S660 and the Kryo 4xx within the 710.
Nevertheless, the only core outcomes (1,900) are larger than what the S660 scores (1,600), suggesting these are the newer 4th era Kryo cores. Multi-core efficiency is barely decrease than what the S660 scores (it has a two core benefit), however that possible makes extra of a distinction in benchmarks than in actual life use (the place duties not often stress greater than two cores on the identical time).
All in all this appears like a very good followup to Qualcomms mid-range choices. By the best way, the check was performed on a Qualcomm improvement platform with 6 GB of RAM. No telephones with this chipset have been examined but, however the 660 was first noticed in early 2017 and the primary telephones with it had been unveiled just a few months later.
