A Weibo tipster states the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will launch with an Adreno 830 GPU clocked at 935 MHz. The SoC’s P-cores will have a peak clock of 4.2 GHz and the other six cores will max out at 2.6 GHz.

For starters, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will launch with an Adreno 830 GPU clocked at 935 MHz. This is more or less identical to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3’s Adreno 750 (~950 MHz). However, the Adreno 830 is slated to deliver Apple M2-levels of performance in a smartphone form factor, which is nothing short of impressive.

    I believe it’s 8 cores, right? Why is this the maximum number of cores used in ARMs chips ? I’ve never seen a 12/16 cores arms chip, why?

      Balancing performance against power draw is tough. You’ll find diminishing returns on adding more cores when a bigger core might complete a task faster and use less power overall. Tensor 3 is also a nona-core, but in general, i think we’ll probably see companies stick with symmetrical big/little core counts.
