We haven’t seen much of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in the global scene and yet the rumor mill continues. This time its follow up, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, is allegedly tested and the chipmaker has some lofty targets with the chips performance.

This report comes from a South Korean forum, and suggests that the 8 Gen 4 GPU, named Adreno 830, is targeted to consume to be less than 9W. Despite it running lower power, performance targets include 405fps on GFXBench ES 3.1 Manhattan, 3D Mark Wild Life Extreme of 7200. This is up to 50% faster than the Adreno 750 GPU found on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and about 10% speedier than an Apple M2 SoC, a laptop class chip.

While in Geekbench 6, the rumor tips a 2800 for single threaded task and 10,000 for multi core score. An increase of 25% and 33% respectively comparing to the 8 Gen 3 reference device.

The rumored large improvements, in our opinion, could be a number of things. One, Qualcomm is said to switch nodes from TSMC N4P 4nm to their N3E 3nm. The optical shrink will provide improvements in PPA, or power, performance and area of the chip. Second, Qualcomm teased that the follow up to the 8 Gen 3 will come with Oryon CPU architecture, a departure from arm’s Cortex CPU designs. Lastly, judging from the name of the GPU, the GPU might have a different architecture all around.

It is too early to say, since we’re yet to see the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in action all throughout of 2024. But if the rumor is correct, we might have a good future when it comes to flagship devices in the Android space in terms of raw performance
