As expected, Qualcomm released its new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 flagship system circuit

In addition to the renewed naming convention, the new circuit also offers a new ARMv9 architecture.

As expected, Qualcomm has released its recent Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 system circuit, which brings with it both new technology and a new naming convention. So it is the successor to the Snapdragon 888 and 888 + circuits seen on the market this year, and the circuit is made with Samsung’s 4nm technology.

Like the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chip unveiled last week, Qualcomm’s innovation is based on ARMv9 technology, and the chip’s processor solution is identical to MediaTek, meaning that all processor cores have taken an upgrade step from their predecessors. The most powerful of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Kryo cores is based on Cortex-X2 and reaches 3 GHz clock frequencies, three notches less efficient power cores are Cortex-A710 and reaches 2.5 GHz clock frequencies and four low-current cores are Cortex To the A510 at 1.8 GHz.

However, unlike MediaTek, Qualcomm has not introduced support for new LPDDR5X memory in its new circuit, and still relies on LPDDR5-6400 RAM.

According to Qualcomm, the graphics circuit in the new circuit is taken care of by the Adreno graphics circuit, which is 30 per cent more efficient than its predecessor and 25 per cent more energy efficient, and the new 7th generation AI Engine takes care of the artificial intelligence acceleration. Understandably, the Snapdargon 8 Gen 1 also supports 5G connections, and the circuit’s 4th-generation Snapdragon X65 5G modem is the world’s most advanced 5G modem, with download speeds of up to 10 gigabits.

For Wi-Fi, the new chip supports the latest Wi-Fi 6E, but Bluetooth support is still in the current 5.2, and Bluetooth 5.3, supported by the Dimensity 9000, is not in the repertoire. However, for Bluetooth, the circuit supports Qualcomm’s previously proposed lossless audio transmission AptX Lossless technology.

On the camera side, Snapdragon Sight technology brings to market the first 18-bit image processor (ISP) on the consumer market, which the manufacturer says is capable of collecting 4,000 times the amount of image data of its predecessor. The processor is capable of handling 8K HDR video and creating a digital Bokeh effect in the background of the videos. In addition, the circuit also has a separate Always-On ISP, which allows the camera to be permanently on with low power consumption, for example for face detection.

Devices containing the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 can be expected to hit the market by the end of the year, and at least Xiaomi has already announced that it will use the circuit in its upcoming Xiaomi 12 model, which is rumored to be unveiled by December 12th. In addition, several other manufacturers, such as Motorola, OnePlus, Oppo, Sony and Honor, have announced that they will use the circuit in their upcoming phones.
