Recent reports suggest that Qualcomm will not release the second-generation Snapdragon 8+ processor as a mid-year gift but is stepping up preparations for the Snapdragon 8 Gen3. This news has been confirmed by a well-known whistleblower, RGcloudS, who shared the latest information about the Snapdragon 8 Gen3.
According to RGcloudS, the Snapdragon 8 Gen3 processor will not be the much-anticipated “1+5+2” combination of large and small core configurations but will continue to use the previous generation’s 1+4+3 architecture. The super large core will be based on the ARM public version Cortex-X4, the large heart will be based on the Cortex-A715, and the small body will be found on the Cortex-A515.
Regarding central frequency, Samsung’s customized chicken blood version will reach an astonishing 3.72GHz. This means that the standard version may also be around 3.5~3.6GHz, which is still an impressive feat.
However, it is a little regretful that the Snapdragon8 Gen3 will be produced based on TSMC’s N4P 4nm process, which means that the only 3nm mobile phone chip this year will be the Apple A17. This may disappoint those waiting for the Snapdragon 8 Gen3 to feature the 3nm process.
In conclusion, the Snapdragon8 Gen3 is expected to be a highly anticipated processor for mobile devices, with its impressive performance and powerful architecture. However, Qualcomm has decided to delay the release of the Snapdragon 8+ processor and focus on the Snapdragon 8 Gen3 instead. It remains to be seen how the Snapdragon8 Gen3 will perform in the market, but it looks promising based on the current information.
