Snapdragon 730 vs Snapdragon 675 CPU and GPU
Starting with CPU of Snapdragon 730, Qualcomm has introduced this chipset with 8nm LPP Node Process. It is a 64-bit Octa-Core chipset which offers Kryo 470 CPU. Kryo 470 CPU means it has 2 ARM Cortex-A76 powerful cores clocked at up to 2.2GHz to handle heavy tasks while other 6 Cortex-A55 Cores clocked at 1.8GHz to work in normal tasks. In case of GPU, the Snapdragon 730 chipset has Adreno 618 GPU. This new GPU improves graphics performance by 25%. Also Snapdragon 730 is the first chipset in 7 series that has Vulcan1.1 API support.
On other side, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 is a 64-bit Octa-Core chipset which is build with 11nm manufacturing process. It has Kryo 460 CPU means it features 2 ARM Cortex-A76 powerful cores clocked at 2.0GHz clocking speed and 6 ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.8GHz. In terms of GPU, the Snapdragon 675 has Adreno 612 GPU. In terms of CPU both chipsets have 2 Cortex-A76 cores and 6 Cortex-A55 cores, but the Snapdragon 730 chipset wins here because it has clock speed and it also has less number of fabrication processes. Also the Adreno 612 is a better GPU which does impressive job compared to the devices having same processor. But it can’t beat the GPU of Snapdragon 730 chipset that is Adreno 618. It is a improved GPU compared to Adreno 612 as its name suggests.
So in terms of CPU & GPU, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 comes as winner.
Snapdragon 730 vs Snapdragon 675 AI Capabilities
Moving on AI Capabilities, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset has 4th gen AI accelerators for better AI performance.
