Qualcomm is one of the most important chipset designers in the industry. Its Snapdragon 8xx series SoCs are usually present in the vast majority of high-end Android phones. While the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 went wrong because of Samsung’s manufacturing process, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 returns to the path of efficiency and high power.
Qualcomm is currently working on the next generation of flagship processors. It is said that this hardware platform will hit the market under the name of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Also, its launch would take place sometime during the month of November.
Before any official announcement, a new leak reveals one of the main differences between the ‘standard’ version and the ‘Plus’ version. As a preview, the latter will bring an ultra-high CPU frequency.
Ultra fast CPU for future Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 chip
The source of the leak is Digital Chat Station. Through a post on Weibo, it revealed that the alleged Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC will have an ultra-high frequency variant whose clock speed will reach 3.4 and 3.5 GHz. For comparison, the Prime core of the current Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 works at a clock speed of 3.19 GHz.
The leaker also claims that the processor’s GPU will also see a significant upgrade compared to its predecessor. However, no more specific details about the GPU clock frequency have been offered.
The ultra-high-frequency variant is expected to hit the market under the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 name. The hardware platform is expected to follow a quad-cluster (1+2+2+3) architecture and will likely be manufactured. at TSMC’s 4nm process node.
Qualcomm’s chipset could include 1x super high-performance Kryo Prime CPUs (based on Arm Cortex-X3), 2x high-performance Kryo CPUs (based on A720), 2x high-performance Kryo CPUs (based on A710), and 3x Kryo CPUs. of energy efficiency (based on A510). It is also expected to have the new Adreno 740 GPU.
According to previous reports, the Xiaomi 13, Redmi K60, iQOO 11 and Vivo X90 series could be the first to adopt the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor.
To top it off, the source suggested that MediaTek’s next flagship Dimensity series chip would offer another impressive performance jump, potentially keeping the current performance gap between Dimensity and Snapdragon hardware closed.
