Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 surfaces on benchmark sites; It will have a 3.7GHz Prime Core


The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is expected to debut in the coming months as the successor to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, which was launched in November last year. While Qualcomm has yet to announce any details about this processor, it has been spotted on two leading benchmarking websites. These benchmarks indicate significant performance improvements over its predecessor. Meanwhile, a recent report also revealed some of the alleged flagship chipset specifications.

A Weibo post (via Notebookcheck) by User Experience More (translated from Chinese) claims that an 8-core CPU can consist of one primary core paired with five performance cores and two efficiency cores — or two main cores and four performance cores and two efficiency cores. The post also carries a screenshot of another user named Hi my (also translated from Chinese) listing Geekbench and AnTuTu performance scores for the rumored Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC.

As per the details shared in the screenshot, the chipset scored 2563 and 7256 points in the Geekbench 6 single- and multi-core tests, respectively. The GPU test score is 8,621 points, but the post doesn’t say if this is an OpenCL or Vulkan test. similarly. An AnTuTu score of 1,712,271 indicates that it will be significantly faster than its predecessor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.

Since these are benchmarks that corresponding verifiable listings lack, it’s best to take these claims with a pinch of salt. A Weibo post containing the purported benchmark results claims that there are “just over 200 days” to launch the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. This timeline aligns with the launch of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in November, but Qualcomm has yet to make any announcement on this front.

Meanwhile, a recent MyDrivers report citing tipster digital chat station claims that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will be equipped with an advanced Cortex-X4 core core with a maximum clock speed of 3.7GHz, along with five performance cores and two efficiency cores. Similar claims were made by developer and tipster Kuba Wojciechowski (@Za_Raczke) in March. The company could unveil its flagship smartphone segment at its annual summit, which is expected to be held in Hawaii later this year.
