Qualcomm introduced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in November of last year. After moving to TSMC’s 4nm technology, users were astonished by the device’s performance and energy use. The Snapdragon 8 Gen3 is now the subject of rumours as well. There were rumours that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen3 flagship processor might show up on GeekBench around a month ago. The article, however, omitted information on this flagship SoC’s core frequency. According to recent sources, this chip will increase in speed from 3.5GHz to a maximum of 3.72GHz.
The “1+5+2” three-cluster design is said to be the Snapdragon 8 Gen3’s architecture. Moreover, the processor improves the main frequency from 3.5GHz to a maximum of 3.72GHz and has a new Cortex-X4 super large core from ARM. The little core is diminished, and a larger core is added. Performance gains of 15% to 20% are offered by the Cortex-X3 based on 8 Gen 2. The five massive cores of the Adreno 750 GPU, clocked at 1.0GHz, are based on the Cortex-A71 processor. The two tiny cores, however, are based on the Cortex-A515.
SCORES FOR THE QUALCOMM SNAPDRAGON 8 GEN3 GEEKBENCH
The single-core running score and multi-core score of the Snapdragon 8 Gen3 are 1930 and 6236, respectively. It is a considerable improvement over the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor’s single-core 1524 and multi-core 4597. According to this score, when this chip finally turns up, it will become the new king of the hill. The new Apple A16 Bionic SoC gets multi-core scores of 5447 and single-core scores of 1877 on GeekBench. GeekBench gives the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 good results, with single core scores of 1524 and multi core scores of 4597. In other words, the Snapdragon 8 Gen3 finally triumphs over the Apple A16.
Yet, for a few reasons, the Android side shouldn’t celebrate too soon. The chip’s performance might alter either up or down because this is only a model for engineering reasons. Until this chip is formally published, though, it will be some time. Because of this, its competitors have time to enhance their chips.
After learning about TSMC’s better production capabilities, it seems unlikely that Qualcomm would soon move back to Samsung. Also, sources claim that Apple’s A17, a next-generation CPU, would dominate the TSMC 3nm technology. The Snapdragon 8 Gen3 would still be manufactured using TSMC’s 4nm technology, though.
