With the year approaching its end, the brands are already starting to prepare the news that they will present next year. In the case of Qualcomm, the succession of Snapdragon 888 should go through Snapdragon 898, a top processor whose details we are now beginning to know about a leak.
Qualcomm is already finalizing the details of its new processor, the Snapdragon 898, which should equip next year’s tops and debut with the Xiaomi Mi 12. In order to make known this new SoC, the leaker Ice Universe has now revealed some details of the new processor of the American brand.
According to what he claims, the new mobile hardware platform will actually be called Qualcomm Snapdragon 898. The insider also added that the main core, which is expected to be based on the new Cortex-X2 architecture, will have a speed clocked at 3.09 GHz. As a reminder, ARM announced the Cortex-X2 as the next generation of its high-performance cores in May, bringing with it a 16% increase in performance over the Cortex-X1 without increasing power consumption.
Previous reports have revealed the first technical details that we can expect for the future Snapdragon 898. According to what we know so far, the chipset will be manufactured in a 4nm process under Samsung’s factories. It should be noted that, by the middle of the next year 2022, it has been leaked that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898+ chipset will also arrive, but on that occasion, it will be manufactured in the TSMC factories.
In addition to the above, Qualcomm is also expected to make use of a different CPU cluster design than that currently applied in the Snapdragon 888 chipset. Qualcomm’s current high-end mobile hardware features a CPU whose cores are arranged in the 1 + way. 3 + 4 (1x super high-performance core, 3x high-performance cores, and 4 energy-efficient cores).
Instead, the future Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 would make use of a 1 + 3 + 2 + 2 CPU core arrangement . This translates to 1x super high-performance main core Cortex-X2, 3x Cortex-A710 cores for high performance + 2x Cortex-A510 cores for energy efficiency and common tasks, along with another 2x Cortex-A510 cores (but at a lower clock speed).
To culminate, the future Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 chipset (or whatever its final commercial name is) is expected to have its launch in early December of this year 2021.
