The first phones with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765 processor are just starting to trickle out, but that doesn't stop the company from announcing today's updated version called the Snapdragon 768 G, which offers better CPU and GPU performance than its predecessor.

Back in December, the original 765 G was revealed alongside the regular Snapdragon 765 and the flagship Snapdragon 865. The two 765 processors were notable in their becoming the first chipsets to feature integrated 5 G modems from Qualcomm. (The Snapdragon 865 includes a separate cellular modem while providing 5 G by default)

The key difference between the regular 765 and the 765 G was the introduction of a Qualcomm Adreno 620 GPU, which the company said would give efficiency up to 20 percent higher than the standard Snapdragon 765.

Qualcomm claims that in addition to increasing the clock speed on the CPU to 2.8GHz from 2.4GHz (for a comparable 15 percent boost over the 765 G), it has managed to increase the GPU performance by an additional 15 percent on the 768G.
