New 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8084 chipset spotted on AnTuTu

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 still has to find a mighty challenger that can dethrone it from the top position. However, it seems the processor might give away its position to a more powerful upgraded version of the chipset. We’re talking about Snapdragon APQ8084, that was recently spotted on AnTuTu benchmark.

The processor can go up to a clock speed of 2.5GHz, which is full 200MHz more than the current flagship Snapdragon APQ8074. It would still be packing four cores, although, it’s not known whether they will be Krait 400 or not.

The GPU on the SoC has been bumped too, and the Adreno 420 would be replacing Adreno 330 as Qualcomm’s fastest GPU on its ARM processors. Although, current benchmarks put Adreno 420 behind the Adreno 330, so it might require further tweaking before the retail version is out. On AnTuTu, the new chip scored 33923 points, which is around 3,000 more than the Snapdragon 800, found in current flagships.
