Qualcomm says the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 will offer 10% higher CPU performance, 10% faster GPU speeds, and 15% less power for “almost 1 hour” of more gameplay or 50 minutes of social media browsing.
It continued, it has improved CPU and GPU power efficiency by up to 30% and AI performance by 20% per watt, but not all of that translates to longer battery life.
Qualcomm touts greater sustained performance from the new chip, which should maintain clockspeed while gaming or using 5G. Depending on how phone makers cool the chip.
Qualcomm has TSMC make the chipset this time. Qualcomm switches foundries frequently. The corporation has emphasised this tactic to ease chip scarcity pressures. Furthermore moving to TSMC for the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 will help Qualcomm meet 5G demand, which is essential given the companies who have already agreed to adopt the chipset.
