Qualcomm released the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 processor at the end of last year. Although it performed well in performance, due to the use of Samsung’s process technology, the heat generation is relatively serious, so that mobile phone manufacturers have to spend more energy to prepare better. Cooling equipment, thereby increasing the weight and manufacturing cost of the mobile phone. Fortunately, in the second half of last year, Qualcomm launched a sales volume of 8 Gen1+ processors based on TSMC’s 4nm process, and the performance is excellent. Now, as time comes to the end of the year, news about the Snapdragon 8Gen2 has also appeared on the Internet, saying that this time, in addition to the performance improvement, Qualcomm’s processor R&D team paid more attention to the thermal performance of the processor.
It is reported that the performance of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 processor is about 20% higher than that of the 8 Gen1+, and it is as powerful as the latter in terms of energy efficiency. However, it is not said whether the 20% performance improvement is CPU or GPU. In terms of points, the single-threaded and multi-threaded performance of the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 processor is 17% higher than that of the 8 Gen1+, which seems to be due to Samsung’s conservative adjustment. In addition, it is expected that the GPU part of the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 processor should be There will be a big improvement.
And due to the heat problem of the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 processor, this time the Qualcomm team paid extra attention to the heat of the processor, hoping to bring a satisfactory heat performance to customers and users, and also let mobile phone manufacturers do not have to spend more energy on Phone cooling. Considering that the Apple A16 processor does not have a big improvement in performance compared to the A15, perhaps with the help of the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 processor, Qualcomm can make a beautiful turnaround.
