New leaks arrive around the SoC Snapdragon 8 Gen1 PlusQualcomm’s next high-end SoC, which ironically is the same Snapdragon 8 Gen1 already released, but made by TSMC to a 4nm manufacturing process compared to Samsung Foundry’s 4nm. While this may seem like a minor change, according to the latest reports, simply changing the manufacturing process leads to a huge improvement in power consumption and performance.
As the well-known Asian leaker revealed Digital chat stationAt the architectural level, nothing has changed in the new SoC, but the use of the TSMC manufacturing process has allowed Qualcomm increase SoC frequencies by about 10% while energy consumption has been reduced by 30%which leaves the manufacturing process of Samsung Foundry very badly, the main culprit in which MediaTek has reached the crown of performance and performance / consumption in Android.
Finally, it is indicated that this data does not represent a real performance, since it was tested in the future Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, and we will have to wait for the mass production of these chips to see the improvements made by Qualcomm. finally applies, as it can sacrifice power consumption in exchange for even more performance. For now, the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 Plus would arrive with a 3.20 GHz Cortex-X2 core (compared to 3.00 GHz) alongside 3x Cortex-A710 @ 2.75GHz (vs 2.50 GHz) + 4x Cortex-A510 @ 1.80 GHz (frequency is maintained).
