Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 score obliterates A16 Bionic

The rumored benchmarks scores for the SD Gen 3 processor with its 4nm+ architecture appears to dominate Apple’s A16 Bionic

In the Android market, Qualcomm Snapdragon chips, particularly its flagship processors, are fairly well-liked. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is currently the newest Snapdragon flagship chip, which is what many Android flagships are using.

Some upcoming flagship Android smartphones are currently planned to use this chip. Although we haven’t yet used the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC to its full potential, there are already rumors about the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. There are still a few months before this new chip becomes available.

There are hints, though, that this chip will perform amazingly.

Meeco, a leaker, is the source of the most recent Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 leak. His leak indicates that the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC will feature a “1+5+2” three-cluster CPU architecture.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 mobile platform rumored specifications

Part number: SM8650

Manufacturing process: TSMC 4nm+ (N4P)

CPU Topography

1× ARM Cortex X4

2× ARM Cortex A520

5× ARM Cortex A720

GPU: Adreno 830

Hexagon DSP

Modem: Snapdragon X75 5G

The Cortex X4 is a super-large core, and this design will reduce the chip’s power consumption by 20%. This chip already has a GeekBench score and an engineering model that is accessible online. The single-core and multi-core scores for this chip are 1930 and 6236, respectively.

By the looks of this score, it will be the new king of the hill when it shows up. On GeekBench, the current Apple A16 Bionic SoC achieves single-core scores of 1877 and multi-core scores of 5447.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 performs well on GeekBench, scoring 1495 for single-core and 5007 for multi-core. In other words, the Apple A16 is finally defeated by the Snapdragon 8 Gen3.

But even so, there is no reason for the Android camp to jump for joy too soon for a few reasons. Since this is only a model for engineering purposes, the chip’s performance could change in either direction—up or down. Additionally, it will still be a while before this chip is officially released.

As a result, its rivals have time to improve their chips. Furthermore, the timing of this exposure makes it too early to definitively determine the authenticity. At the annual Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit at the end of the year, the Snapdragon 8 Gen3 will once again be unveiled.
