Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 flagship chipset has finally been revealed. It’s the Snapdragon’s most powerful chipset to date. There are a lot of interesting changes in it. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 has reportedly addressed the issues present in Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset. Not only is it Qualcomm, but it’s also the most powerful Android chipset we’ve seen so far. Many smartphones from OEMs such as Xiaomi and realme are about to be released with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. We have talked about the benchmark scores of this flagship chipset in this post.
Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 features
In terms of specifications and features, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 has the ARM Cortex X2 primary core, which is the most powerful in the ARM Cortex family. Qualcomm’s most powerful Adreno GPU is also included. When compared to the previous generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G chipset, Qualcomm claims that Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 offers up to a 20% increase in performance and up to a 30% increase in power efficiency. Not only that, but it also includes Qualcomm’s 7th generation AI Engine, which is said to have two times the shared memory and a two-times faster tensor accelerator than the Snapdragon 888’s 6th generation AI Engine, resulting in better per-watt performance.
The chipset is manufactured using Samsung’s 4nm fabrication process, which uses less energy than 5nm chipsets. In comparison to its predecessor, the new Adreno GPU is expected to deliver a 30% increase in graphics rendering and a 25% reduction in power consumption. That concludes the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset’s features and specifications. Let’s talk about the chipset’s benchmark score now.
What is the Antutu score of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1?
- Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 powered Moto Edge X30 has managed to achieve 1,061,361 points on the AnTuTu benchmark test.
The benchmark scores have never been consistent, and there can be a significant difference between the chipset’s real-world performance and its benchmark world performance. The Benchmark scores, on the other hand, give us an idea of the chipset’s performance and power.
Motorola has announced its first Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 powered smartphone called Moto Edge X30. At the launch event, Motorola has said the handset’s performance and mentioned that the smartphone hits 1 million scores on Antutu.
When it comes to Antutu scores, the realme GT 2 Pro, which will be the upcoming smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, is said to have a score of over one million. Yes, you read that correctly. The device received a total score of 1,025,215 on the Antutu benchmark test. So far, the device’s Antutu score has been impressive. It’s also worth noting that the score may differ from one OEM to the next. However, you should expect a score of around 9,00,000 to a million.
