SAN FRANCISCO: Chip maker Qualcomm is reportedly developing a new chipset to compete with Apple’s upcoming M-series processors.
The new processor is being developed under the codename ‘Hamoa’ and will be marketed as ‘Snapdragon 8cx Gen4’, reports Gizmochina.
A 12-core SoC was mentioned earlier by tipster Kuba Wojciechowski. He now claims that the Silicon moniker will be his Snapdragon 8cx Gen 4.
The company may be working on several chipsets, but the one that is said to have the best performance is expected to have 8 performance cores.
However, it’s not clear if Qualcomm’s Oryon cores will be featured in the new processors.
The company apparently isn’t developing a new graphics processing unit (GPU) for the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 4 as it is expected to feature the same Adreno 740 graphics processor as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, the report states.
At the company’s Investor Day last November, Qualcomm CTO Jim Thompson announced plans for Qualcomm to create a next-generation ARM-based SoC (system-on-chip) designed to set performance benchmarks for Windows PCs. bottom. The iPhone maker’s M series is expected to compete with his processor.
Meanwhile, earlier this month, the chipmaker announced the “Snapdragon Satellite.” At the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2023, Apple’s satellite-based two-way messaging solution for premium smartphones will succeed Apple’s satellite messaging capabilities.
