Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Has a Ultra-High Frequency Variant?



Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is launching soon by Qualcomm. Chipset it will be the company’s flagship and comes in two versions.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will reportedly come in standard models and high-frequency iterations. What are the advantages of Qualcomm’s two latest SoC variants?

Based on tipster on Weibo, like The telephone quote from GSM ArenaFriday (9/16/2022), Qualcomm may launch two versions of the SoC 8 Gen 2.


The standard version will be business as usual, while the other version has high-frequency iterations, which should encourage clock significantly.

Currently, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 Prime core runs at 3.19 GHz, while the high frequency options will offer at least 3.4 GHz to 3.5 GHz.

Information says, one version of 8 Gen 2 will have an ultra-high frequency. The report also states, there will be a significant increase in the GPU.

As per previous rumors, the 8 Gen 2 will be based on TSMC’s 4nm manufacturing process and will power the iQOO 11 as well as some flagship another.

Lastly, the tipster hints that chip The next in MediaTek’s Dimensity series will offer impressive performance jumps on the CPU.

Some time ago, the leaker Digital Chat Station reveal that chipset Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 has an unusual CPU configuration, namely 1+2+2+3.

The SoC 8 Gen 2 allegedly features one Cortex-X3, two Cortex-A720, two A710, and three A510s with codes 1x Makalu-Elp, 2x Makalu, 2x Matterhorn and 3x Klein-R1.

The Makalu and Matterhorn names are the successors of the Cortex-X1/A78 generation. The Matterhorn is an X2/A710 move in the chart. Makalu is the next generation.

The Cortex-X3 and A720 promise up to a 30 percent increase in CPU peak performance over the X1/A78 cores and a smaller jump from the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

The SoC 8 Gen 2 (SM8550, codenamed Kailua ES) will be built on TSMC’s N4 node, following the same 4nm process that was performed on the SoC 8+ Gen 1.


SoC 8 Gen 2 will probably be chipset the first mobile to feature four different CPU cores. Currently, mobile chipsets still use three types of CPU cores. [SN/HBS]
