The keynote started with Qualcomm President and CEO Cristiano Amon introducing us to their newest custom ARM-compatible CPU microarchitecture, Oryon. Qualcomm claims that its about 30% and 70% more efficient than the Apple M2 Max and i9-13980HX on single threaded performance. They also noted that Oryon will be coming for mobile devices next year, presumably called the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4.

Next up is X Elite. Qualcomm claims up to 2x the performance of CPU and GPU over competing Intel, AMD and Apple CPUs with varying power efficiency improvements all across. As for the technical specs, the X Elite harbors the new Oryon CPU architecture CPUs, 12 of them, running at 3.8GHz and dual core boost of up to 4.3GHz. This is paired with an Adreno GPU capable of delivering 4.6Tflops of FP32 performance. As for AI, its NPU can deliver up to 45TOPs and 75TOPs including the CPU and GPU.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is unveiled to power next generation mobile phones. The chipmaker claims 30% uplift in CPU performance, 25% GPU performance improvements and +98% on AI performance. Its specs include one 3.3GHz arm Cortex X4, five arm Cortex A720 running at either 3GHz and 3.2GHz and two arm Cortex A520 at 2.3GHz. This is paired with a new Adreno GPU and Hexagon DSP.
