Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3: Unleashing Next-Level Performance

The decision to partner with TSMC once again stems from Qualcomm’s intention to incorporate custom Oryon CPU cores into the new chipset, prioritizing power and efficiency. This move suggests a lack of confidence in Samsung’s yields or performance, leading Qualcomm to favor TSMC for its advanced capabilities.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 is anticipated to deliver outstanding performance in the Android realm while maintaining power efficiency. According to the leak, the chipset is expected to surpass 10,000 points on Geekbench 6 in a multi-core scenario. The Adreno 830 GPU is rumored to offer comparable power consumption to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 but with notable performance improvements. The overall power consumption of the SoC is speculated to be a modest 8W.

Qualcomm’s choice to collaborate with TSMC for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 aligns with its dual chip sourcing strategy, slated for 2025 with the release of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 5. For the Galaxy variant of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, production is rumored to take place at Samsung’s foundry 3GAP.

While the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 is still approximately a year away from its official release, these leaked details offer a glimpse into the promising advancements and performance enhancements that Qualcomm aims to bring to the Android market. As the launch date approaches, more comprehensive details about the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 are likely to surface. Stay tuned for updates on this highly anticipated system-on-a-chip.

Pokdepinion: I would rather see a bigger focus on efficiency and a whole lot less on performance. I mean, what we have now is already powerful enough but seeing it sustain performance better or just lower thermals in general would see an overall boost across the board.
