    Galaxy S23’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset could have different specs

    Earlier reports had claimed that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset that could power the upcoming Galaxy S23 series has a 1+2+2+3 configuration. This would include one Cortex-X3 CPU core, two Cortex-A720 CPU cores, two Cortex-A710 CPU cores, and three Cortex-A510 CPU cores. However, the latest reports claim that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC will come with different specs than we know.

    This piece of information comes from the reliable tipster Ice Universe. According to Ice Universe, instead of two Cortex-A720 cores, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will feature a pair of Cortex-A715 cores. Also, the Cortex-X3 will have a maximum clock speed of 3.2GHz and the Cortex-A510 will clock at a speed of 2GHz. Lastly, the Cortex-A715 and Cortex-A710 cores will have clock speeds of up to 2.8GHz. These cores will be paired with the Adreno 740 GPU.

    Qualcomm is expected to make the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC official in November

    There is speculation of an ultra-high frequency variant of the SoC that would sport a prime core clocked at 3.4-3.5GHz. To give you a bit of comparison, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 has a prime core clocked at 3.2GHz, while the A16 Bionic on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max has a performance core clocked at 3.46GHz. Qualcomm is all set to host the Snapdragon Summit between November 15-17, 2022, in Hawaii and is expected to unveil the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 officially.

    Qualcomm is believed to be focussing on the “energy efficiency” part rather than performance with its new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. This makes the “ultra-high frequency” version of the chipset of much interest to OEMs looking for a chip that emphasizes power over efficiency. As far as the manufacturing is concerned, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will supposedly be produced by TSMC in its 4nm mode.
