Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor has optimal energy consumption
When introducing the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 flagship processor, Qualcomm said that the biggest difference between this processor and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor is the lithography used in them. These chips are made based on 4 nanometer lithography; But only one of them uses TSMC’s four-nanometer lithography. It is said that this factor alone has a significant impact on energy consumption. Now, one of the whistleblowers has praised this chip due to the benefit of Snapdragon 8 Plus 1st generation from more advanced lithography.
According to Wccftech, analysts say the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor has caused overheating and performance degradation in some phones. The main reason for this may be related to chip lithography. Qualcomm made Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 based on Samsung’s 4nm lithography. Samsung’s 4nm lithography performs poorly compared to TSMC’s 4nm lithography.
Samsung is also said to have had trouble securing enough Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chips. This is what made Qualcomm sign a contract with TSMC to manufacture the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1. A whistleblower with the username Ice Universe on Twitter says that the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 has lower power consumption. He advises Android device enthusiasts to wait a few months for Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 equipped phones to arrive.

In general, the differences between Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 are not so much; But the lithography used to produce them makes Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 show more stable performance. Ice Universe did not provide detailed statistics on the improved power consumption of the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1. Some time ago, the benchmark attributed to the phone Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 was revealed, which showed that statistically, between There is not much difference between the processing power of Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
Don’t forget that the phone’s cooling system also affects the stability of the processor’s performance. This means that relatively thin devices that do not have a professional cooling system to the extent of gaming phones, will have poorer performance.
It makes it much more efficient. Rumors say that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor will also be made with TSMC’s 4nm lithography. This chip will probably have four different types of cores consisting of one Cortex X3 core, two Cortex A720 cores, two Cortex A710 cores and three Cortex A100 cores for the first time in the history of Qualcomm chips.
When Qualcomm introduced the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor, it featured a 3.2 GHz Cortex-X2 core, three 2.8 GHz Cortex-A710 cores, and four 2.0 GHz Cortex cores. -A510 was announced with six megabytes of shared L3 cache. According to Qualcomm, Adreno graphics unit in Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 has up to 10% faster clock speed than Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 graphics unit.
