The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2’s major advancements, particularly on the GPU front, meant that the Android camp was at last posing a serious threat to Apple’s A-series chipsets. A source claims that Qualcomm could beat the competition this year since the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 GPU is 50% quicker than its predecessor.
A17 Bionic may not be the quickest smartphone processor in terms of graphics performance, according to Digital chatter on Weibo, who claims that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 GPU will be 50% quicker than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2’s Adreno 740. The tipper, however, did not include any supporting data or other information about how Qualcomm would enable performance differences.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 was mass manufactured on a next-generation node, therefore Qualcomm could have simply increased the power goal of the SoC to squeeze more performance out of it. For one thing, TSMC’s N3 process is considered to be very power-efficient. Qualcomm has little alternatives since the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is allegedly made using the same 4nm technology as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, so it will probably turn to considerable tuning.
With the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, Qualcomm will reportedly choose a completely new Processor arrangement. The business is said to be releasing “titanium” cores for the first time ever. The identical SoC was being tested by the company with the Adreno 750 GPU operating at 770MHz rather than 1.00GHz, as we also reported.
Clearly, there is a mismatch of information occurring, which will hopefully be corrected at some point in the near future. While we personally prefer a more effective GPU from the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, we do not want to sacrifice battery life or manageable heat generation in the process.
