The AI Engine is designed to deliver up to 12 tera operations per second (TOPs) AI performance. For audio processing, a second-generation Qualcomm Sensing Hub and a dedicated low-power AI processor have also been provided.
The Snapdragon X53 5G Modem-RF System within Snapdragon 780G can deliver up to 3.3Gbps of download speeds on sub-6 GHz frequencies. The company will be providing an enhanced audio experience with Qualcomm Snapdragon Sound technology that is there in Bluetooth v5.2 connectivity- enabled chipset. The FastConnect 6900 System, which was also a part of Snapdragon 888, is also there with the new upgrade.
A statement released by Qualcomm noted that the Snapdragon 780G has been designed to “bring in-demand, premium experiences to more users around the world.” Even for gamers, there will be Qualcomm Snapdragon Elite Gaming integration and this is expected to bring support for all top AAA games.
