Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen3 GPU performance puts the A17 Bionic under pressure

Snapdragon 8 Gen 3

The 3rd Gen Snapdragon 8 (Snapdragon 8 Gen3) from Qualcomm is slated to go on sale no later than the third quarter. Following the positive reception of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and Snapdragon 8 Gen2, interest in the third-gen Snapdragon 8’s product power is rightly high. The next-gen Android camp GPU running score has risen by 50%, according to popular Weibo tech blogger @DCS. The practical performance boost is huge. Can the Apple A17 overtake in a curve? This is a big question that will put Apple under pressure.

In fact, the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 CPU is comparable to the Apple A16. From the Xiaomi 13 launch event, the SD8 Gen2 GPU performance exceeds that of the Apple A16. This is where the issue of “curve overtaking” first appeared. The GPU of the Snapdragon 8 Gen3 will be updated from the Adreno 740 to the Adreno 750. The new GPU will have a frequency of 770MHz–1GHz, according to a previous rumour. The Snapdragon 8 Gen3’s internal chip model is the SM8650, also known by the codename Lanai. The chip architecture is incredibly cutting-edge. For the first time, it employs an 8-core architecture of “1+2+3+2,” or a true 64-bit architecture.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen3 GeekBench scores

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen3 originally appeared on GeekBench a little more than a month ago. The Snapdragon 8 Gen3 has single-core running scores of 1930 and multi-core scores of 6236. The single-core 1524 and multi-core 4597 of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU have been greatly improved. When this chip eventually appears, it will take over as the new king of the hill based on this score. GeekBench yields multi-core results of 5447 and single-core results of 1877 for the new Apple A16 Bionic SoC. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 works brilliantly with a single-core GeekBench score of 1524 and a multi-core score of 4597. In other words, the Apple A16 is ultimately defeated by the Snapdragon 8 Gen3 chip.

The Android side shouldn’t celebrate too soon, though, for a few reasons. This is simply a model for engineering purposes, therefore the chip’s performance could change upward or downward. It will take some time until this chip is formally released, though. This gives its competitors time to improve their chips. It is doubtful that Qualcomm will soon move back to Samsung after learning about TSMC’s superior manufacturing capabilities. Furthermore, according to sources, TSMC’s 3nm technology will be monopolized by Apple’s A17, a next-generation CPU. Nonetheless, TSMC’s 4nm technology would still be used to create the Snapdragon 8 Gen3.
