Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is the new ruler of the world of mobile processors

  • The dominance of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in the field of high-end processors is over
  • He is replaced on the imaginary throne by a new player, again from Qualcomm
  • The American manufacturer introduced its new revision called Plus

Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is the most powerful chipset for Android phones

Qualcomm introduced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 last December, and with its help pushed the boundaries of mobile performance a little further. This is the very first processor for Androidwho is able to cross the mythical limit of 1 million points in AnTuT and he is really a beast. But now she has lost her head and is being replaced by a new version.

Same lithograph, different manufacturer

As Qualcomm promised, he did. He introduced a new top chipset for the rest of this year and named it Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. It is still built on 4nm lithography, but it is no longer produced by Samsung, but by the competing TSMC. This has a slightly better tuned production process, which has made it possible to deploy higher cycles with the expected and expected better efficiency.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and specifications

  • Number of cores: 8
  • Production technology: 4nm TSMC
  • Clock frequency: up to 3.2 GHz (Cortex-X2 main core)
  • Graphics accelerator: Qualcomm Adreno
  • RAM: LPDDR5 3200MHz
  • Technologie: Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3, USB-C, USB-3.1
  • Fast Charge: Qualcomm Quick Charge 5.0
  • Podpora API: OpenGL ES 3.2, OpenCL 2.0 FP, Vulkan 1.1

Same on the outside, more powerful on the inside

Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 boasts the highest core clock rate within Anyway and thanks to better tuned lithography, the frequency could be increased from 3.0 GHz to 3.2 GHz. As a result, the manufacturer managed to match its upper-middle-class chipset, the older Snapdragon 870. The result is 10% higher computing power combined with up to 30% better CPU efficiency, which we certainly welcome.

The graphic part, whose frequency was increased by 10% and energy consumption is also 30% lower, received the same improvement. Artificial intelligence is also significantly more effective, by up to 20%. The efficiency of the processor as a whole has improved by a solid 15% compared to the previous Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. But as they say, the paper will withstand everything, and the first tests will show whether the novelty will really be significantly better tuned than its predecessor. And we are already looking forward to them.

When will the new king sit on the throne?

Qualcomm said that the first phones with this processor will arrive in Q3 2022, ie in the third quarter of this year (July – September). Like the original version, most manufacturers will use this one in their top phones. See the list below.
