We have heard that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2’s successor would have even greater aspirations in terms of both performance and efficiency, despite the fact that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 itself brought about a significant performance improvement. In the next iteration of Qualcomm’s flagship platform, there will be a new CPU architecture, and clock speeds will be significantly increased, according to a reputable source who is in the know.
There will be new CPU clusters and a faster prime core in Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.
It is stated that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 has one prime Cortex-X4 CPU core running at an incredible 3.7 GHz, as well as five powerful cores for performance and two tiny cores for efficiency.
The name of the graphics processing unit (GPU) will reportedly be Adreno 750, and the model number will be SM8650, as reported by Digital Chat Station.
It is anticipated that TSMC would continue manufacturing the chips, transitioning from the N4 node to the N4P node, which is still a 4nm process technology but offers a marginal improvement in productivity.
The manufacturing cycle is the reason TSMC is not opting for the 3nm process; N4P is good enough and quite affordable, and the facilities in Taiwan are ready to begin mass production as soon as the trial is finished by phone companies.
