Over the last few years, Snapdragon is leading in the mobile chip market, but in 2020 the company has gone so far with the record-breaking new chipsets. We’ve seen some amazing chipsets like Snapdragon 865, Snapdragon 732G that was launched in Poco X3, Snapdragon 870 that was launched in Poco F3, and many more smartphones. Now we have the full specs and full complete details of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 678, let’s start off with the benchmarks.

AnTuTu 9:

CPU 101216
GPU 51346
Memory 48181
UX 82701
Total score 280804

Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 shows average Antutu 9 scores. We can see the big jump loss in the GPU performance. The total performance of the GPU is 51346, which is faster than the Snapdragon 680. The CPU also shows one of the best scores. It is 101216 which is faster than the Snapdragon 732G. The memory scores also show a significant boost. Snapdragon 678 memory is faster than Snapdragon 732G, and Snapdragon 680. The Ux is also showing one of the best performances. It is 82701, which is faster than Snapdragon 732G, and Snapdragon 680. Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 total scores are above 280804. It will depend on which smartphone manufacturers using this chipset with which type of ram. Snapdragon 678 is considerably gaining a performance boost and beating some of the latest processors in the Mid-rand category.


Geekbench 5:

Single core 528
Multi Core 1529

The single-core scores show the best performance in this smartphone mid-range category lineup. The single-core scores are 528. And the multi-core scores are 1529 which is also good at this point.

CPU:

Architecture 2x 2.2 GHz – Kryo 460 Gold (Cortex-A76)
6x 1.7 GHz – Kryo 460 Silver (Cortex-A55)
Cores 8
Frequency 2200 MHz
Instruction set ARMv8-A
L1 cache 16 KB
L2 cache 256 KB
Process 11 nanometers
TDP 6 W

Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 launched with the Big 2 cores of Cortex-A76 which are ultra-high performance cores that are clocked on 2.2 GHz. The other 6 cores are based on Cortex-A55 which is a power efficiency core. There is a little disappointment that why they haven’t used the Cortex A76 or A75. But the Cortex-A76 also has the best speeds and good set instruction architecture. There is a total of 8 cores with a boost clock of 2.2 GHz. Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 has the latest set instruction architecture. It is not considered fast but it is strong enough to beat some of the latest and most powerful Chipsets. Snapdragon 678 is fabricated on 11Nm. This means Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 will be power efficient and will consume less battery and will produce less heat.


Graphics:

GPU name Adreno 612
Architecture Adreno 600
GPU frequency 845 MHz
Execution units 2
Shading units 96
FLOPS 354 Gigaflops
Vulkan version 1.1
OpenCL version 2.0
DirectX version 12

Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 has a new architecture-based GPU. Adreno 600 is the new architecture that they are using in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 678. The GPU is also manufactured using the 6Nm technology. Which means it will also be power efficient. The name of the GPU is Adreno 612. This is the fastest GPU in this lineup. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 is fast enough to handle games like FREE FIRE, and PUBG MOBILE. The GPU score is faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 which means there will be a smooth gaming experience on this chipset. The GPU is clocked on 845MHz. The shading units are also 96 which will help in rendering the graphics in gaming. There is also DirectX support of 12 which means this processor will support the latest games without any bugs and delays.


Memory:

Memory type LPDDR4X
Memory frequency 1866 MHz
Bus 2x 16 Bit
Max bandwidth 14.9 Gbit/s
Max size 8 GB

Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 uses the new LPDDR4x ram with the memory frequency of 1866 MHz and uses the bus of 2×16. The ram may be changed according to the smartphone manufacturers, like XIAOMI, REALME, VIVO, etc. The memory frequency is also going to be changed according to the smartphone manufacturers. The max memory bandwidth is 14.9Gbit/s which is also faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 which was used in Realme 5i. The max memory support is 8GB.

Support:

Neural processor (NPU) Hexagon 685
Storage type eMMC 5.1, UFS 2.1
Max display resolution 2520 x 1080
Max camera resolution 1x 192MP, 2x 25MP
Video capture 4K at 30FPS
Video playback 4K at 30FPS

Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 uses the hexagon 685 which is fast with the AI calculations. Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 uses the UFS 2.2 which is fast. This gives you fast read and writing speeds.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 has the maximum display support of FullHD+ and can support the 120hz refresh rate with the super Amoled. Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 is going to be very aggressive when it comes to a camera support. It supports a camera up to 108MP. The video capture is kept on 4k at 30FPS and the video playback is also 4k at 30FPS. There is no 4k 60FPS support on this Qualcomm Snapdragon 678. It is a bit odd to see there is no 4k 60FPS support on a 2022 mid-range chipset.



Connectivity:

Modem X12
5G support No
Wi-Fi 5
Bluetooth 5.1

Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 has no 5G support. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 also comes with the wi-fi 5 and the Bluetooth version of 5.1. This will give you better signals and better speeds. Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 uses the Snapdragon X11 5G modem. It is not fast as the X51 but it gives you good speeds.

Smartphones
