Qualcomm’s newly launched Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 flagship chipset reportedly has overheating issues in the Moto Edge X30. The American semiconductor company unveiled its 4nm-based flagship chipset dubbed, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 at the Snapdragon Tech Summit. Furthermore, Qualcomm guaranteed a 20 percent boost in performance over the previously launched Snapdragon 888. This claim proved to be true earlier this month as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1-powered Motorola Edge X30 scored more than 1 million on AnTuTu.
Aside from that, it delivers about 60 percent more GPU performance as compared to the Snapdragon 888. The technology is based on ARMv9 architecture, and built on the advanced 4nm process technology. On top of that, the newly launched chipset seems to be over 10 percent faster than its predecessor, the Snapdragon 888, as far as single- and multi-core performance is concerned. The new architecture brought hope that the new chip will not have overheating issues like the Snapdragon 888. However, a noted tipster suggests that won’t be the case on the Moto Edge X30.
