But now everyone is talking about its successor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4. Rumor has it that this will be the first Qualcomm product with cores of its own production called Oryon. They should replace ARM technologies.
According to insider information, Qualcomm plans to equip the new chipset with a core configuration reminiscent of the one used in the Apple A processor line for the iPhone. That is, the SoC will contain two performance cores and six cores focused on energy efficiency.
The removal of the ARM Cortex-X5 design and other ARM processors from the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will enable Qualcomm to offer high performance comparable to Apple’s A chipsets.
In addition, sources have announced support for LPDDR6 memory in Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 which will provide higher memory bandwidth with lower power consumption. New items are expected to be released next year.
