Snapdragon 8 generation 2 has prioritized energy efficiency

According to the official announcement of Qualcomm, the latest flagship chipset of this company, Snapdragon 8 generation 2, will be officially introduced at the end of November. This chipset should compete with competitors like Apple's A16 and MediaTek's Dimension 9100, none of which have been announced yet, so we can't go into their specifications. Now, according to one of the Chinese whistleblowers, it seems that Qualcomm has paid special attention to energy efficiency for the Snapdragon 8 generation 2, and this approach may come at the cost of reducing performance.

According to the official announcement of Qualcomm, the latest flagship chipset of this company, Snapdragon 8 generation 2, will be officially introduced at the end of November. This chipset should compete with competitors like Apple's A16 and MediaTek's Dimension 9100, none of which have been announced yet, so we can't go into their specifications. Now, according to one of the Chinese whistleblowers, it seems that Qualcomm has paid special attention to energy efficiency for the Snapdragon 8 generation 2, and this approach may come at the cost of reducing performance.

Regarding this chip, Many reports have been published in the past months. It is said that the same team responsible for the design of the Snapdragon 835 chip has taken over the task of developing the Snapdragon 8 generation 2. As a reminder, we must say that Snapdragon 835 was introduced in 2016, and at that time it was well received due to its 25% lower energy consumption than the previous generation. Of course, an important part of this energy consumption improvement was made possible thanks to the migration from 14 nm technology to 10 nm manufacturing technology. Of course, due to the progress of new technologies, this amount of energy consumption improvement is no longer significant. For example, we can point to the Snapdragon 8 Plus generation 1, which is not significantly different from the standard model, and only with some minor improvements and the use of TSMC manufacturing technology, it has managed to reduce energy consumption by 30%. Due to Samsung's problems and weaknesses in the field of manufacturing flagship chipsets, it is said that Snapdragon 8 generation 2 along with its next two generations will be produced by this Taiwanese company. In any case, we have to see what this chipset has to say about the previous generation.
