Qualcomm introduced the highly anticipated Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 on Tuesday and showed off the various new features and also some performance data. Now the Americans have followed up with some benchmarks based on a Qualcomm Reference Design (QRD) device. The result was an average of 2.13 million points on AnTuTu. The new chipset completed Geekbench 6 tests with an average of over 2,300 points in the single-core tests and over 7,400 points in the multi-core tests. In the video below you can see the test device in action.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is further based on an eight-core design with a 64-bit architecture. It has a Cortex-X4 main core, five fast Cortex-A720 cores and two energy-efficient Cortex-A520. The core frequencies have been increased significantly. The prime core runs at 3.3 GHz, the large cores at up to 3.2 GHz and the energy-efficient cores at 2.3 GHz. This resulted in a 30% increase in performance and a 20% reduction in energy consumption compared to the previous generation.

However, which GPU Qualcomm uses in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is still a mystery. It should be an Adreno 750 with both 25% more performance and 25% better energy efficiency. The introduction of Image Motion Engine 2.0 promises smoother gaming at twice the frame rate and the maximum supported refresh rate has been increased to an impressive 240Hz.

But one of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3’s most significant upgrades is its AI capabilities. The Hexagon DSP has evolved into the Hexagon NPU and coordinates several components of the chipset. These include the Kryo GPU, Adreno GPU, Hexagon DSP and Spectra image processor. Additionally, two Micro-NPU units process audio and sensor data. In terms of peripherals, the Gen 3 supports LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 storage, with the highest supported memory frequency reaching 9,600 MHz.
