Qualcomm’s highly anticipated Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset is making headlines as it approaches its official announcement. Prior to the unveiling, the chip has already undergone extensive benchmarking on various platforms, giving tech enthusiasts a glimpse into its capabilities.
One notable device that has showcased the power of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is the ASUS ROG Phone 8 Ultimate. Recently, the gaming smartphone was tested on Geekbench 6, achieving an impressive single-core score of 2,213 and a multi-core score of 7,048. These results indicate the device’s potential for delivering exceptional performance.
However, despite its robust cooling system, the ROG Phone 8 Ultimate still appears to fall short compared to its rival, the A17 Pro. The A17 Pro, featured in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, reportedly suffers from thermal throttling issues due to inadequate cooling. Despite this setback, the A17 Pro manages to outshine even the lowered performance targets of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, boasting a nearly 32 percent faster single-core result.
Excitingly, Qualcomm is expected to release an exclusive variant of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 specifically designed for Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S24 family. This tailored chipset will undoubtedly pique the interest of tech enthusiasts, who are eagerly waiting to see how it performs in comparison to the regular version.
While Geekbench 6 results have shed light on the CPU performance of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, its GPU capabilities have remained undisclosed. This omission leaves experts and consumers curious about the graphic performance and potential gaming capabilities of the upcoming chipset.
As Qualcomm prepares to make its official announcement regarding the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, enthusiasts eagerly await more information on its features, performance, and possible partnerships. Stay tuned to The Liberty Conservative for the latest updates on this highly anticipated chipset.
