A supposed development board for the upcoming Snapdragon 835 chipset has shown up on the listings of GFXBench and what tests have found is that Qualcomm has made vast improvements with its Adreno GPU.

If what we are seeing is true, then we can affirm that the 835 will have eight cores. They are said to sport the proprietary Kryo 200 design from Qualcomm. In addition, there’s a 5.9-inch quad HD display, about 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage to back up this Android Nougat workhorse.

The Adreno 540 GPU seems to be the star, taking things considerably higher than the Adreno 530 as featured on the Snapdragon 820 and 821.

Comparing results between the workboard — again, an Adreno 540 driving 1440p pictures — with a OnePlus 3T, — a Snapdragon 821 with the Adreno 530 at 1080p — we find a 20 to 30 percent improvement in grindstone performance on average.

The results are below. We should note that none of what are considered the “high-level tests” were done onscreen:

Tests Total frames / Adreno 540 Total frames / Adreno 530 FPS / Adreno 540 FPS / Adreno 530

Manhattan 3.1 (OpenGL ES 3.1/Offscreen) 2567 2040 41.4 32.9

We have not been able to independently view all of the test results ourselves because the source page has become inaccessible to us, but all of these signs are encouraging and more VR-friendly than ever before.
