Snapdragon 8 generation 1 along with Exynos 2200 has been widely criticized for its high CPU power consumption, and even the 9000 Density chipset has been somewhat criticized. He struggles with problems. All three chips use the Cortex X2 processor core, which consumes more power than the previous generation. Now, according to a new report, the X3 kernel does not look any better than previous generations.
According to a new rumor, the Cortex X3 consumes more power than previous generations. It is said that when the speed of this core is set to 3.0 GHz or higher, it puts about 10% more pressure on the battery in terms of energy consumption. Although it is said that this kernel does not offer a significant improvement in terms of processing power compared to the previous generation, but on the other hand in the field of artificial intelligence can bring 100% faster than the X2.
This rumor is based on the latest technology made by Samsung and TSMC. On the other hand, it seems that Qualcomm intends to use powerful proprietary cores again due to the problems of large cores offered by Arm. But it seems that this approach will not be implemented until 2024. This means that it is likely that the 4th generation Snapdragon 8 will also be available to users with cores designed by Arm. MediaTek, meanwhile, has no plans to design dedicated cores because doing so would require a huge budget. Also, Samsung, which until a few years ago used proprietary processor cores for Exynos chipsets, has abandoned these plans and it seems unlikely that the company will resume designing proprietary cores.
Overall, Qualcomm recently It has faced many problems in competing with MediaTek. Samsung is currently producing the 1st generation Snapdragon 8 processor. Although Samsung is one of the most important manufacturers of mobile chips, most experts believe that TSMC has more to say in this regard. It is said that in addition to the fact that the production efficiency of Snapdragon 8 generation 1 is lower than expected, but Samsung has not been able to keep the quality of this chip in line with the expectations of Qualcomm executives. That's why Qualcomm has decided to outsource the production of the Plus model to TSMC.
As you probably know, Qualcomm's flagship Plus Plus models are usually not much different from the standard model, and only use relatively faster CPU and GPU speeds. But given that the Snapdragon 8 generation 1's problems are said to be largely due to Samsung's technology, the Plus model probably won't expect many of these problems, such as high power consumption and overheating. It should be noted that MediaTek's Diamond 9000 processor is practically no different from Snapdragon 8 generation 1 in terms of processor, but MediaTek has entrusted the production of this chip to TSMC, and therefore it is said that the chipset has been able to distance itself from Qualcomm's flagship chip. Slow down.
Overall, the flagship chip competition is hotter than ever these days, and as competition intensifies, it is the users who are the ultimate winners because they can take advantage of better chips.>
