In its first filtering performance test, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 shines

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is the new processor from Qualcomm has a CPU that could finally keep up with the latest A Bionic chips from Apple.

The new generation of Qualcomm’s most powerful processor could finally go head-to-head with Apple chips. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will be announced officially in November. However, it has already been seen in a Geekbench benchmark that was apparently run on a Samsung Galaxy S23. The test shows some technical information about the SoC. Also, a big improvement in CPU performance over the last generation.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will be made with a 4 nanometer processor. Its eight-core CPU will be set up in a slightly different way than its predecessor’s. On the one hand, we find four cores that are running at 2.80 GHz. On the other, there are three that run at 2.02 GHz. The main core, on the other hand, will reach 3.36 GHz. Which is fast enough to match the A15 Bionic chip in the iPhone 14 and beats it in multicore tests.

The iPhone 14 and its A15 Bionic chip can get a score of 4,501, while the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 get a score of 4,597. We also see important differences in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. In single-core tests, the American company’s new SoC gets 1,524 points, while its predecessor only got 1,218 points. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 scores 4,597 on multi-core tests, while the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 can score between 3,500 and 3,700.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will be more efficient

With Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, Qualcomm also seems to have made it use less power. The new Cortex-X3 core will give it 25% better performance than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1’s Cortex-X1. Qualcomm’s new SoC will have two Cortex-A715 cores, which are 20% more efficient and 5% more powerful than the 2.02GHz Cortex A710 cores.

This improvement in energy efficiency could have a direct effect on increasing autonomy. But Qualcomm hasn’t released any official information yet. At the next Snapdragon Summit, which will be held from November 15 to 17 of 2022, we hope to learn all the technical details.
