Igeekphone January 17 news, the blogger @digital chat station recently broke the news that Qualcomm’s upcoming new mid-range processor – the third-generation Snapdragon 7+ (or Snapdragon 7 Plus Gen 3), or will become the most powerful existence in the history of 7 series chips. Because it will use the same core architecture as the flagship chip Snapdragon 8 Gen3, it is called “small Snapdragon 8 Gen3“.
The third generation of Snapdragon 7 +, codenamed SM7675, will be available in two versions, and its performance improvement comes from the adoption of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 core architecture. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is Qualcomm’s flagship chip, and its eight-core architecture contains two low-power cores, five performance cores, and a Cortex-X4 super-large core with a maximum bandwidth of 3.3GHz. Compared to the previous generation Cortex-X3, the Cortex-X4 has improved performance by about 15%, while significantly improving power consumption, reducing power consumption by 40% at the same frequency. If the Snapdragon 7 Plus Gen 3 really inherits this architecture, the performance of the mid-end mobile phone will usher in a leap forward.
First of all, compared with the current Snapdragon 7 Plus Gen 2, the CPU frequency of the new generation of chips will be significantly increased from 2.91GHz to 3.3GHz, which means that whether it is daily tasks or slightly more demanding games, the processing speed will be smoother.
In addition, graphics processor (GPU) performance is also likely to improve, after all, the current Snapdragon 7 Plus Gen 2 is slightly inferior in this regard. In addition to performance improvements, the new generation of chips is likely to introduce Qualcomm’s latest flagship AI software features and further reduce power consumption.
Regarding the first manufacturer, the blogger suggested that three brands will use the new generation of Snapdragon 7 + chips this year. In addition to Xiaomi and Realme, OnePlus or iQOO may also be partners. I hope that with excellent performance this time, Snapdragon 7 Plus Gen 3 can appear on more Android phones, so that more users can enjoy the flagship chip experience.
