Benchmarking The Sony Xperia X, Starring Snapdragon 650

By 12:47 Mon, 02 Aug 2021 Comments


The Sony Xperia X is powered by a Snapdragon 650 - Qualcomm's recent and highly popular mid-range chipset. To be honest, we tdiscontinue to prefer its 652 sibling.

Don't be fooled by their name, these are the accurate successors to the Snapdragon 810. They utilize the Cortex-A72 Central Processing Units (CPU) core, faster and more powerful than the A57 it replaces. The Snapdragon 650 has two of them, the 652 has four, both add four Cortex-A53 cores for low-power needs.

Better still, the GPU is part of the Adreno 5 series, a 510 to be exact. It's miles ahead of the Adreno 405 that's used in lower-discontinue Snapdragon 6-series chipsets. It even stacks up well against the Adreno 430 in the S810 chipset. Sony paired the chipset with 3GB of RAM, while some makers are slowly making their way to 6GB.


The Xperia X focuses on things like design, capturing camera and audio. Sony also has the Xperia X Performance, which as you can guess from the name, offers a faster chipset - a Snapdragon 820, if you want more oomph than the S650 delivers. There are other advantages to the Performance model too, but that's a tale for another time - for now, let's stick with benchmarking the S650.
