One primary core may be coupled with five performance cores, two efficiency cores, and two more to make up the octa-core CPU. The chipset scored 2,563 and 7,256 points in the Geekbench 6 single- and multi-core tests, respectively.
According to the Weibo report, “just over 200 days” remain till the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 debut.
Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is projected to appear in the coming months as a successor to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, which was announced in November of last year.
Although Qualcomm hasn’t yet made any announcements about this CPU, it has allegedly been found on two well-known benchmarking websites. These benchmarks suggest a significant increase in performance over the previous model. In the meanwhile, some of the supposed flagship chipset’s specifications have also been made public by a fresh report.
According to a Weibo post that has been translated from Chinese, the octa-core CPU may be made up of one prime core paired with five performance cores and two efficiency cores, or it may be made up of two prime cores, four performance cores, and two efficiency cores. A screenshot of another user, Hi My, who cites the Geekbench and AnTuTu test results for the purported Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC, is also included in the post.
According to the data seen in the picture, the chipset did well on the Geekbench 6 single- and multi-core tests, scoring 2,563 and 7,256 points, respectively. There are 8.621 points on the GPU test, however it’s not obvious from the text if this pertains to the OpenCL or Vulkan test. AnTuTu’s score of 1,712,271 also suggests that it will be much quicker than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor.
Given that these are benchmarks without supplementary entries that can be verified, it is advised to treat these claims with caution. The debut of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is “just over 200 days” away, according to the Weibo report that claimed to include the benchmark results.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will contain five performance cores, two efficiency cores, and a powerful Cortex-X4 prime core with a maximum clock speed of 3.7GHz, according to a recent MyDrivers post that quotes tipster Digital Chat Station. Such assertions were made in March by developer and tipster Kuba Wojciechowski (@Za_Raczke). The company could reveal the top-tier smartphone chipset during its annual summit, which is slated to happen shortly after in Hawaii.
