Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 Specifications

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is fabbed by TSMC using the 4nm manufacturing process and is said to be more power-efficient and powerful when compared to the Snapdragon's 4nm based Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. Hence, although the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC has a higher clock speed, the chipset is said to be more power-efficient than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC still uses an octa-core CPU architecture with a single high-performance core with a 3.2GHz clock speed based on ARM Cortex-X2 micro architecture. Similarly, there are three 2.8GHz high-performance CPU cores based on ARM Cortex-A710 micro architecture, and four efficient CPU cores with 2.0GHz clock speed based on Cortex-A510 architecture.

The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC uses the same Adreno 730 GPU as of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Just like the CPU cores, the GPU on the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 has 10 percent faster clock speed than the one on its predecessor. These are the major changes between the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, and the rest of the specifications are identical to each other.
