Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 is rumored to achieve 4.3GHz speed, but it won’t

Qualcomm’s upcoming flagship mobile processor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, is rumored to introduce significant upgrades and performance enhancements compared to its predecessor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.

This shift includes transitioning from off-the-shelf ARM cores to Qualcomm’s custom-designed Oryon cores, providing greater flexibility in optimizing performance and efficiency. While initial speculation suggested the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 might break the 4GHz barrier, newer rumors now indicate a potential clock speed of 4.3GHz, comparable to Qualcomm’s high-performance laptop processor, the Snapdragon X Elite.

However, such high clock speeds could lead to increased power consumption, potentially doubling the TDP to 24-25W compared to the previous generation. As a result, achieving optimal performance may require reducing the processor’s frequency, with a suggested target of 3.8GHz. Despite these challenges, we’ll continue to provide updates as more information becomes available.
