Since Apple launched its first self-developed M1 chip, it has received continuous attention from industry players.
At the same time, in order to fight M1, mainstream chip manufacturers have accelerated the development of their own flagship chips.
Not long ago, it was reported that the code-named SC8280 processor appeared in an import and export database report.
Snapdragon 8cx Gen2,
It is reported that this processor is an upgraded product of Snapdragon 8cx Gen2.
According to the running score information, the Snapdragon 8cx Gen3 uses an 8-core design with a frequency of 2.7GHz, a single-core score of 982 and a multi-core score of 4918.
Compared with the 3050 multi-core score of the previous generation Snapdragon 8cx Gen2, the new generation multi-core performance has increased by 61%.
But compared with the scores of Apple M1 single-core 1736 and multi-core 7311, the gap between Snapdragon 8cx Gen3 and Snapdragon 8cx Gen3 is still very large.
According to previous reports, the new generation of Snapdragon 8cx will use four “Gold+” cores with a frequency of 2.7GHz and four small cores “Gold” with a frequency of 2.43GHz.
In addition, this new SoC will also integrate an independent NPU unit with 15TOPs of AI computing performance.
It is worth mentioning that the test prototype is also equipped with 32GB memory and a 14-inch screen.
In addition to the version that supports 8GB LPPDR5 memory, it is also expected to be equipped with a 32GB LPDDR4X memory version.
It is understood that Qualcomm released the second-generation 5G platform of the Snapdragon 8cx for PC in September last year. Compared with the previous generation,
it has added 5G connections in millimeter wave and frequency bands below 6GHz, and also supports WiFi6 network connections.
At the same time, 8cx Gen2 targets Intel’s tenth-generation Core i5 processor, promising an 18% increase in overall performance and an increase of 39% per watt.
I have to say that the emergence of Apple M1 has had a huge impact on the mobile PC platform. In the future,
what flagship products several mainstream chip manufacturers will produce to deal with Apple M1 is worth looking forward to.
