Welcome everyone one more day! In this new article that we present, we are going to talk about a recurring theme but of great importance for many of the users worldwide who are technology lovers, because they are three processors that, in addition to being powerful, provide intelligent products with all the features they need. This article is about the Helio P95 vs Snapdragon 865 vs Snapdragon 730 war, and here we will tell you all its specifications and who will win this battle.
It is time to start this great comparison of processors, and we will start talking about the CPUs that are inside. The CPU of the Helio P95 consists of an eight-core cluster, two of them are ARM Cortex A75 at a speed of 2.2 GHz, for the most demanding and complex tasks, while we then have six Cortex A55 cores at 2.0 GHz, for one Greater energy efficiency.
On the other hand, the Snapdragon 865 is built with an octa-core CPU configuration. The main core of this processor is an Arm Cortex A77 at a speed of 2.85GHz that works hand in hand with a 512kb L2 memory cache for maximum performance. Likewise, three larger Cortex A77 cores flank the main core, offering them 2.4GHz peak clock speeds and smaller 256kb L2 caches. Finally, the Cortex A77 is the most powerful arm CPU design so far, thus having more than enough power to run the most demanding mobile applications and games available.
Finally, we have the Snapdragon 730, the evolution of the 710 chip. This comes loaded with extensive improvements in each of its sections. We started with the new lithography process used of only 8nm, being the first Qualcomm chip to implement it. The Octa-Core architecture has been distributed in 2 Kryo 470 CA76 cores at a speed of 2.2GHz and 6 Kryo 470 CA55 cores at a speed of 1.8GHz, which translates into a 24% improvement in power over the SND 710, but it is just a 1% better on CPU than the SND 675.
Turning to talk about the GPUs that are inside these two powerful processors, the GPU in the Helio P95 is the same as in Helio P90, the IMG PowerVR GM 9446, although according to MediaTek the performance has improved by 10%. It supports up to 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM and the maximum screen resolution of 2,520 x 1,080 pixels.
That being said, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 has an Adreno 650 GPU, which promises a performance gain similar to 25% for graphic representation, thus having an energy efficiency also improved by 35%. It’s the best GPU in the Snapdragon lineup and is only featured in flagships.
Having said that, the Snapdragon 730 is totally in another league in this section, when compared to Helio P95. The Adreno 618 unit allows it to reach a score of 63,878 in AnTuTu. The G variant is even more powerful than the non G variant. However, it still is no way near the SD 865 GPU, but can offer you a cost-effective but high-performance graphics in the upper mid-end range.
As for connectivity, the Helio P95 does not present changes, since it maintains the 4G connectivity of its predecessor by including the 4G LTE modem. It also maintains support for Wifi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0. Nor are there changes in terms of support for VoLTE, WFC and FM radio calls. Camera support has also not changed in this processor. Camera support of up to 64 megapixels is maintained in case of a single lens or support for double cameras of 24 + 16 megapixels. The supported video recording is up to 2,840 x 2,160 UFS 2.1.
On the other hand, the Snapdragon 865 is prepared to work with a more advanced 5G technology modem than the current ones: the Snapdragon X55 5G, which will reach a high rate of data transfer speed. Energy consumption when using 5G networks will be reduced, something that is important due to the operation of this type of networks.
Lastly, we reach the connectivity of Snapdragon 730 to find Wifi 6, in addition to Wifi 5 and Wifi 4, and MU-MIMO to add up to four channels and increase the speed. This Qualcomm processor mounts a Snapdragon X15 modem, with 4G of up to 800Mbps of download and 150Mbps of upload, and we will have classic supports such as the NFC, GPS and company, in addition to Quick Charge 4+ fast charging.
MediaTek’s SoCs are always much cheaper than Qualcomm’s one. That is why we see a lot of Chinese brands using its budget-friendly phones. Snapdragon 865 phones are the most expensive ones, followed by Snapdragon 730. However, considering the price-to-performance ratio, the flagship phones featuring Snapdragon 865 have become expensive crossing a $400 price tag. However, the upper mid-end category featuring SD 730 has remained quite budget-friendly. So, SD 730 offers the best price-to-performance ratio).
Concluding this Helio P95 vs Snapdragon 865 vs Snapdragon 730 comparison, we must say that it depends on the user to select the processor that best suits its needs. That being said, and guided by this comparison, it can be seen that both the Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 730 work slightly in a better way compared to the Helio P95, but as we always say, it all depends on the tastes and needs of the user. In terms of performance and connectivity, Snapdragon 865 dominates the list being the most powerful SoC to date.
