Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 Unleash the Speed! Adreno 830 vs Apple M2

Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 features

Next year, smartphones running the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 which will include Qualcomm’s first bespoke Oryon cores will be available. They anticipate that those CPU designs will be powerful and may even challenge Apple’s A-series chipsets, but they also need to keep an eye on the silicon’s new Adreno 830 GPU, according to a rumor. Although no specifications have been released, an early 3DMark Wife Life Extreme score indicates that the next-generation graphics processor in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 is 10% quicker than Apple’s M2.

The suspected Oryon cores of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 are also reported to have achieved remarkable single-core and multi-core performance on Geekbench 5

Although tipster Revegnus did not submit a screenshot from 3DMark Wild Life Extreme, he states that the Adreno 830 scored 10% higher than Apple’s M2 in the same test. Recall that there are two M2 variations, with the top-end version having a maximum of 10 GPU cores and the other having a different number of GPUs. According to reports, the Adreno 830 got 7,200 points, which corresponds to a 10% performance differential between the M2 and its 8-core GPU.

According to a tipster, the Dimensity 9400 is “restrained,” and Qualcomm’s proprietary cores will be present in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4

Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 with Dimensity 9400 The “soon to be unveiled” Dimensity 9300 and the recently disclosed Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipsets are discussed on Digital Chat Station. Because of the expensive wafers, Qualcomm and MediaTek relied on TSMC’s N4P process this year instead of adopting Apple’s strategy and employing the 3nm “N3B” node; nevertheless, TSMC’s N3E technology is purported to deliver higher yields at a more reasonable price.

Earlier this year, MediaTek and TSMC announced their alliance. They stated that the new manufacturing method can result in up to an 18% performance gain and 32% power savings over the previous generation N5, and that commercial production of the undisclosed silicon will begin in 2024. Although Qualcomm has not yet made an official announcement, it is anticipated that the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 would use the same manufacturing process as the Dimensity 9400.

The goal of 3DMark’s Wild Life Extreme is to evaluate the thermal boundaries of smartphone and tablet chipsets, as well as their efficiency and ability to withstand prolonged workloads over time. In comparison to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and the impending Dimensity 9300, they anticipate better power efficiency from the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 and the Dimensity 9400, which are both expected to be mass manufactured on TSMC’s 3nm technology and to arrive next year.

Since the Adreno 830’s results are the first that we are aware of, it is likely that engineering samples are being tested in a controlled setting where a chipset is meant to operate with little to no power limiters or small mobile enclosures to restrain it, enabling these chips to display their power with aggression. When the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 is included in a number of Android flagship devices and put to the test in different regions with high humidity levels next year, things will be quite different.

In addition, the tipster shared some amazing Geekbench 5 single- and multi-core results for Qualcomm’s 2024 SoC. However, we advise our readers to proceed with caution and check back with any developments. Ultimately, it is premature to take these assertions seriously, particularly given that the initial release of smartphones equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is still a ways off.
