The performance core is cloaked at a maximum of 2.8GHz, with some of the cores based on the new ARM Cortex-X1. For graphics, the Snapdragon 888 relies on the Adreno 660 GPU that promises 35 percent faster graphics than the previous iteration. Qualcomm says the Adreno 660 can either be tuned to get the maximum performance with a larger thermal envelope on gaming phones, or sustained performance on regular flagship devices.

They have completely re-designed 6th generation Qualcomm AI Engine with the new Qualcomm Hexagon 780 processor delivers a combined 26 TOPS, a 73 percent increase vs the previous generation.
