We compare the two Qualcomm mobile processors and reveal all the news that Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 includes.
After months of rumours, American chipmaker Qualcomm has fixed it Present in society Its new franchise chipset for high-end Android mobiles in 2023A Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 that will debut in these 5 terminals will see the light before the end of 2022.
But is Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 really that much better than Snapdragon 8 Gen 1? To answer this question, below, we detail All the differences between the two premium Qualcomm chipsets.
All these news include the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
The first major difference between Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is found in its CPU, which represents a big difference despite being manufactured at 4 nanometers. Both design and thermal efficiency. This is because Qualcomm decided to do so Bet on TSMC instead of Samsung To make it up, overheating is the reason for the performance issues experienced by Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
When it comes to the core architecture of the CPU, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 has an octa-core design with a single ARM Cortex-X1 core clocked at 3.0GHz, 3 Cortex-A710 cores clocked at 2.5 GHz and 4 Cortex- A510 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 opts for an 8-core configuration A powerful Cortex-X3 core at 3.2 GHz, 4 Cortex-A715 cores at 2.8 GHz and another three Cortex-A510 cores at 2.0 GHz.
This translates to CPU changes Performance improved by 35% and energy efficiency by 40% Compared to previous generations.
Similarly, the Adreno 740 GPU that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mounts improves the performance of the Adreno 730 that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 equips. by 25% and, in addition, consumes 40% less energySomething that will result in better performance and greater autonomy of the terminal.
In this regard, we should also point out that Qualcomm has introduced Ray tracing hardware acceleration technology in Snapdragon 8 Gen 2Which will improve your experience while playing with mobile Better simulates how light physically behaves in the real worldMakes both reflections and shadows more realistic.
If we focus on the ISP, which is a small processor dedicated to imaging, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 has a new feature. Cognitive ISP which uses AI to detect a large number of elements in a scene in real time eg Face, hair, clothing, facial features, skin tone or sky. Also, this new ISP is compatible with Samsung’s 200-megapixel ISOCELL HP3 photographic sensor and AV1 codec. Play videos in 8k HDR quality at 60 FPS.
At the connectivity level, the great innovation of the Snapdragon X70 5G modem equipped with 8 Gen 2, which is compatible with mmWave and sub-6 bands in SA and NSA modes, allows Use two 5G SIM cards at the same time.
Likewise, the new Qualcomm chipset is also compatible with the standard Wi-Fi 7 which provides speeds up to 5.8 Gbps and with Bluetooth 5.3.
Finally, in terms of performance, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 has improved significantly compared to Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, since, as you can see in the image that we leave you on these lines, the new Qualcomm chipset has been received on Geekbench 1,485 points in single core and 4,739 points in multi core Compared to 1,231 points in single-core and 3,708 points in multi-core for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
