Information was posted on Weibo that the development team for Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 has changed and the team that developed the new Snapdragon 835 will be responsible for it. If this information is correct, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will be a product that emphasizes power efficiency over processing power, says leaker Koji Amori.
Pointed out that improving power efficiency is more beneficial to users
With the development of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 now being done by the team that developed the Snapdragon 835, it seems that the focus will be on improving power efficiency rather than processing power.
Commenting on the change, Mr. Asen said that the processing power of current system-on-chips (SoCs) is too much for most users, and power efficiency improvements would be more to be gained.
Snapdragon 835 improves power efficiency by 25%
Notebookcheck reports that the Snapdragon 835 was about 25% more power efficient than the Snapdragon 820.
However, it was mainly an improvement made by changing the manufacturing process from 14nm to 10nm, so the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 that will be manufactured by TSMC and its successors Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and Snapdragon 8 Gen. In 4, the media notes that attention will be paid to how much power efficiency can be improved without major changes in the manufacturing process.
It is rumored that Qualcomm will be able to manufacture semiconductors on TSMC’s next-generation manufacturing process, 3nm “N3”, in the second quarter of 2024 (April-June).
