Introducing Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3, the first 5nm chip for Windows laptops and 6nm 7c+ Gen 3 chip

News unit Qualcomm company on the first day of the Snapdragon annual meeting Chipset Tech Summit Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 cores, the first time the company’s products have been built with 4nm lithography and Armv9 cores. Now, on the second day, this company has gone to a new category of products, Windows laptops based on Arm processors, and has introduced its latest products in this category, namely the advanced Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 chip and the lower-end 7c+ Gen 3 chipset. Meanwhile, Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 is the first 5nm chipset made for Windows laptops based on Arm processors, and naturally both support 5G connectivity.

Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3

Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 chipset, as mentioned, is designed to be used in the new generation of Windows laptops equipped with Arm processing cores, and although it is not possible to directly compare it with high-end chips until this processor appears in a real product And the sound of the M1 Apple isn’t there, but it doesn’t sound like Qualcomm is looking at a lower level to gain a higher share of the The mobile computing market is at a time when the shadow of the pandemic is still wide after two years have passed and the trend of distance work and education in many parts of the world remains in full force. At this time, Qualcomm released little information about the internal structure of Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3, and practically no details are available about the type and frequency of the cores and graphics of this chipset. In the meantime, we only know that for the first time in this category we are facing a 5nm chipset, while both previous generations of this family, i.e. The original 8cx and its second generation (Gen 2) were made with 7nm lithography.

About the power of this chipset, Qualcomm mentions an 85% improvement in multi-core or multi-core processing compared to the previous generation, and in terms of graphics power, from Qualcomm’s point of view, we will see a 60% increase in performance. Other statistics presented this time belong to the neural processing unit or NPU, which is three times more than the previous generation and now has the ability to process 29 trillion operations per second. In a not so relevant comparison, it might not be bad to know that this figure is for Snapdragon 888 was equal to 26TOPS.

This comprehensive improvement in processing, graphics and artificial intelligence is also accompanied by a reduction in energy consumption, and it is possible to place this set in a laptop without a fan; Of course, this possibility existed before in previous generations as well, but this time, in a constant high performance, we will certainly face much better conditions in this generation. Naturally, this advantage is also effective in the stability of the battery, where Qualcomm talks about the durability of the battery for several days in the new design. Of course, it goes without saying that energy consumption and battery life will naturally be determined in each laptop according to its hardware specifications.

Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3, as mentioned at the beginning, supports 5G connection; Of course, this support is different depending on the needs of the laptop manufacturers and there are three different options of the modem. Snapdragon X65 with support for a maximum nominal download speed of 10Gbps at the highest level to Snapdragon X55 with a maximum nominal download speed of 7.5Gbps in the middle range and

Among the other features of this collection, it should be possible to delete Echo and noise reduction pointed out that both use artificial intelligence technology and the high power of the neural processing unit. Another option in this chipset supports multiple cameras, which, despite the fact that it seems a rather strange option for a laptop at first glance, but in the usual scenarios these days in remote work and education, it provides interesting features, for example, in online presentations. makes available.

Snapdragon 7c+ Gen 3

Snapdragon 7c+ Gen 3, as Qualcomm’s lower-end chipset, is intended for cheaper Windows laptops, and its 6 nm lithography, although it is placed in a lower position than 8cx Gen 3, is an improvement compared to its previous generation, 7c Gen 2 with 8 nm lithography. shows considerable Qualcomm did not mention the exact processing and graphics components of this chipset here, and only spoke of 60% higher CPU speed and 70% faster GPU compared to before. The neural processing unit in this chipset can process 6.5 trillion operations per second, which is slightly changed compared to the previous generation 5TOPS and shows the difference between this model and its 8c+ counterpart.

While the previous generation of this family only supported 4G connection, Qualcomm fortunately did not abandon the 5G option in 7c+ Gen 3 and equipped this chipset with The Snapdragon X53 modem will launch with support for a nominal maximum download speed of 3.7Gbps. Wi-Fi 6E has not been forgotten here as another positive point and on paper it will be able to support 2.9Gbps ​​speed.

The wait to see laptops equipped with Qualcomm’s new 8cx+ Gen 3 and 7c+ Gen 3 chipsets won’t be long, because according to the company, the first examples with these two processors will hit the market in the first quarter of 2022. . In the meantime, of course, the amount of manufacturers’ acceptance of these two chipsets and their possible desire to abandon AMD and Intel processors and replace them with Qualcomm chipsets is another issue that probably tells a different story.
