Revolutionary Performance: Qualcomm partners with TSMC for Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC

Qualcomm’s Next Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC Promises Outstanding Performance, Leaks Suggest

According to renowned tipster @Tech_Reve, Qualcomm is gearing up to release the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC next year, and it’s expected to bring some impressive performance to the Android world without drawing too much power.

One of the leak suggests that the new chipset will be based on 3nm technology and will once again rely solely on TSMC for production. The decision to choose TSMC over Samsung is reportedly due to Qualcomm’s plan to use custom Oryon CPU cores and not compromise power and efficiency with the new set of cores. This means the company just isn’t convinced with Samsung’s yields or performance. However, it’s said that a dual chip sourcing strategy is still on the cards for 2025.

The tipster also suggests that in a multi-core scenario, the SD8 Gen 4 is said to surpass 10,000 points on Geekbench 6, while the Adreno 830 GPU offers the same level of power draw as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 while offering excellent performance gains. The whole SoC is rumored to consume just 8W.

This news is quite surprising considering the recently released Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is barely in action. However, the leaks from this particular tipster have been mostly accurate in the past, so there is reason to believe the report.

Qualcomm’s decision to go with TSMC again for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 does make sense, especially when comparing the performance of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, which was manufactured by Samsung, to the Plus variant that came out of TSMC’s fabs and proved to be a better chip overall.

While the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 is still about a year away from release, more details are expected to emerge as the actual announcement nears. For now, tech enthusiasts and mobile users can look forward to the promise of outstanding performance from Qualcomm’s upcoming SoC.
