The first smartphone with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC has just been announced and we are already looking at its successor, or Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3The first rumor comes from a user-published post @united states of america A Korean Meeco forum shows a screenshot of a test done on geek bench It has the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. The chip name is not shown, but the brand and architecture are: Not Qualcomm’s current chip, but the most powerful of all Qualcomm’s current chip.
Snapdragon 8 Gen 3: Promising
Geekbench test results show some excellent value, which is equivalent to 1,930 points for single-core and 6,236 points for multi-core. For comparison, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 2 scored 1,495 and 5,077 points respectively.
Numbers recorded by Qualcomm’s upcoming SoC are even better than current chips Apple A16 Bionic Of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, which scored 1,877 points and 5,447 points, current record By GeekBench 5.
the post of @united states of america It also states that there is a 20% reduction in consumption delivered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC compared to the current generation.
In addition to these numbers, we know that the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC will still have one. 8 core configurationwith core Cortex X4 As the main, 4 other unidentified cores with higher frequencies and 2 other cores with lower frequencies are added.
Exynos 2400 rival
The upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will be a very fierce competitor in the smartphone chip market. This is also not officially announced yet. Samsung Exynos 2400The South Korean giant’s new chip, which is supposed to be unveiled in 2024, First 10-core SoC.
Rumors about it talk about the main core Cortex X4 (We expect the same for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3) and 5 Cortex A720 cores (of which 2 are high frequency and 3 are low frequency). Added to these are four more Cortex A520 cores.
Now it looks like this new Exynos 2400 is aimed at the following models: Samsung Galaxy S24 However, some say that even the Korean brand’s future flagships will be based on Qualcomm SoCs. So if this happens, Samsung could sell his Exynos 2400 to other brands that have no chance of developing their own SoC internally. But logically speaking, such a hypothesis is unlikely.
why samsung Develop a very powerful SoC (For 10 cores) e don’t use it on his smartphone? It will still be a long time before two of his SoCs (Samsung and Qualcomm) are officially released, and only then will we understand the true intentions of the two manufacturers.
