How does the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 measure up and perform? Would it unlock new levels of power for 2024 smartphones?

To answer that, Qualcomm has provided some benchmark numbers based on a Qualcomm Reference Design phone containing SD8G3, giving us a glimpse of the synthetic numbers it can manage.

Before we publish Qualcomm’s results, here’s a quick overview of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 mobile platform’s system (this bit will also help to inform our future smartphone reviews).

Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 CPU, GPU, NPU and other specs

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is built on a 4nm process, by TSMC.

The CPU subsystem features a nine-core Kyro CPU layout that claims 30% increase in performance and 20% better power efficiency improvements over its predecessor. The cores are laid out in a 1+5+2 format, with one large core for peak performance scenarios, five middle cores with two different clockrates, and two efficiency cores for low-power or simple tasks:

1x Cortex-X4 at 3.3GHz3x A720 at 3.2GHz2x A720 at 3.0GHz2x A520 at 2.3GHz

The SD8G3 also features an Adreno GPU for graphics processing, and it’s said to offer a 25% performance increase and a 25% improvement in power efficiency over its predecessor.

The NPU also offers 98% improved AI performance with 40% better performance per watt.
