Close competition of Snapdragon 8cx and Intel Core i5 chips
Published benchmarks of the new processor Snapdragon 8cx Qualcomm indicates that this chip has seen a big leap in power and performance compared to its predecessor and can even compete with mid-range processors from the Core i5 Intel to compete.
Snapdragon chips, which are already used in Windows laptops, have shown high battery life, and even more than 20 in some cases. They have charging hours. These chips can add capabilities seen in smartphones to laptops, including instant booting and permanent Internet connection; But the chips used in these laptops have much weaker performance and are more expensive compared to laptops that use regular Intel and AMD processors. .
Therefore, it can be very exciting to show the strong and improved performance of the new Snapdragon 8cx processor. Thanks to this processor, in the future we will see Windows 10 laptops with Snapdragon chips that can finally fulfill the promises made by Qualcomm and Microsoft should investigate regarding this data platform.
According to the benchmark results published in Geekbench, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx processor has a clock speed of 2.48 GHz. And it uses eight cores. The score of this processor was 3,327 in the single-core processing section and 11,154 in the multi-core processing section.
These results can be compared with Intel’s Core i5-8250U processor, which was able to It has achieved 3,659 points in the single-core processing section and 11,192 points in the multi-core processing section. Moreover, the score obtained by this processor should be considered a big leap compared to Snapdragon 850. According to the reviews of the Lenovo Yoga C630 laptop that uses this processor, the Snapdragon 850 scored 2,291 and 7,101 in the single-core and multi-core processing sections, respectively.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx unlike previous Qualcomm chips that Designed for use in smartphones and tablets and then modified for use in laptops, it’s the first chip built specifically for computers from the ground up, and it seems to have proven that fact by showing a huge leap in performance.
By the end of this year, we will see many laptops equipped with Snapdragon 8cx. It should be noted that Lenovo previously introduced its Limitless project at the Computex exhibition and claimed to release the first 5G laptop with Snapdragon 8cx chip.
- Snapdragon 8cx introduced
- Snapdragon 8cx outperforms some Intel Core i5 processors
- The world’s first 5G laptop was introduced
If this benchmark is true, it means the launch of laptops with Snapdragon processors that can provide us with long battery life without compromising on performance. The future of laptops is really exciting. However, the overall performance of the Snapdragon 8cx is still lower compared to Intel’s Core i5-8250U, especially in single-core processing. While there are countless ultrabooks on the market that use Intel Core i5 processors, many users prefer to use Intel’s existing options instead of paying the extra $100-$200 for Snapdragon-equipped laptops.
In terms of battery life, we will have to wait and see if the Snapdragon 8cx-equipped laptops can fulfill Qualcomm’s promise of amazing battery life. The laptops that were previously released with the company’s Snapdragon 835 chip, despite having a longer battery life compared to regular laptops, did not have much difference with laptops equipped with Intel processors. Therefore, it can be said that Qualcomm still has a lot of room for improvement in this field.
