Qualcomm launch event scheduled for May 20

The brand will likely announce two new chipsets for smartphones – Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus.

A Qualcomm confirmed that the company will hold a new launch event on May 20 in China. Although the details of the event have not been revealed, the company is expected to announce its new series processors. Snapdragon and Qualcomm.

The brand will likely announce two new chipsets for smartphones – Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus.


This will mark the debut of Qualcomm’s 7-series processor with the new naming scheme the company introduced last year when announcing the flagship SoC. Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

Based on reports and leaks, Qualcomm’s upcoming SoC will use ARM Cortex A710 and Cortex A510 cores clocked at 2.3GHz and 1.8GHz respectively. Moreover, it will also be integrated with the Adreno 662 GPU.

On the other hand, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plusas the name suggests, is an upgraded variant of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. It is built on TSMC’s 4nm process instead of TSMC’s 4nm process. Samsung.

Previous leaks have indicated that the chipset will have a 1+3+4 core configuration, including a Cortex X2 main core clocked at 2.99 GHz. It is also said to come with three Cortex A710 cores and four Cortex A510 cores.

Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 can’t stand up to MediaTek’s rivals

O Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 has already been tested in AnTuTu and the first results are not very encouraging. According to the test results, the processor was able to score about 170,000 points. For comparison, the Snapdragon 778G gives just over 160,000 points. And, according to preliminary data, the new chipset of Qualcomm lose at Size 8000 days MediaTek.

So, according to the test results in AnTuTu, the result of CPU do Dimension 8000 no OPPO K10 is just over 191,000 points and the GPU is around 283,000 points. THE true me Q3S with Snapdragon 778G managed to score about 160,000 points in the test of CPU and GPUs. But let’s make a reservation that the synthetic test passed an engineering prototype with Snapdragon 7 Gen 1.

In addition, there are optimization and tuning issues. On commercial devices, things can turn out much better, and the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 will show a much better result.

From chipset Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 was announced, there have been rumors that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ platform will be manufactured using a 4nm process by TSMC rather than the Samsung.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ made in 4nm TSMC and not Samsung

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is built on the 4nm process of Samsungwhile the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ will be based on Taiwan-based TSMC’s 4nm semiconductor fabrication process. It is assumed that the Plus edition will be more efficient than the normal version.

A Qualcomm even hired TSMC to manufacture a percentage of its 4nm chipset, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 found in the Galaxy S22 series, despite the Samsung Foundry has already been selected as the sole manufacturer of this chip.

The production problems of Samsung are worrying. it is said that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 from Qualcomm, made by Samsung Foundry, has a success rate of 35%. Which simply means that out of the 100 parts manufactured, 65 are defective. own income Exynos Samsung’s 4nm 2200 is even lower than this.
