It hasn't been long since the presentation of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+, yet Qualcomm is already working on its successor. The new mobile platform Snapdragon 8 Gen2 should debut by the end of the year and, according to the latest rumors, should present aCPU architecture completely redesigned.
Upgrade 29 / 09: a well-known industry leaker reveals how the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU should be configured. Find all the details in the article.
Qualcomm could revolutionize everything with the next Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
According to some internal sources, Qualcomm would be working on the new mobile platform Snapdragon 8 Gen2 with some respectable news. The SoC should see the light by the end of the year and will be the engine on board the next high-end smartphones.
With this, Qualcomm could revolutionize its CPU architecture by moving from the current three-cluster architecture (1 + 3 + 4) to that of a four clusters (1 + 2 + 2 + 3) formed as follows: 1 x 3,2 GHz Cortex-X3 + 2 x 2,8 GHz Cortex-A715 + 2 x 2,8 GHz Cortex-A710 + 3 x 2,0 GHz Cortex-A510. For the first time, therefore, Qualcomm would have decided to use two Cortex-A7xx series clusters instead of just one; remember that the core X3 will take care of the highest performances, the A715 and A710 cores of the medium / high load ones and the A510 cores of the more modest ones.
The whole would be accompanied by a GPU Adreno 740, which instead should not undergo substantial changes and should continue to maintain the same architecture of the Adreno 730 GPU present in current chips. But for the Ice Universe leaker there will be great improvements also on the graphic side, as well as for components such as NPU e ISP. Also, let's not forget that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 should be launched in two variants, one of which even more powerful.
Just like the previous model, so too Snapdragon 8 Gen2 it should be produced at 4 nm by TSMC so we shouldn't expect big increases in clock speed. Qualcomm is expected to unveil the new platform in the fourth quarter of the year with an event in Hawaii.⭐️ Discover the new Weekly Flyer of GizChina with always different exclusive offers and coupons.
