Qualcomm has announced its latest mid-range chipset, the Snapdragon 7 Gen 3. Although based on the name, everyone might initially think that the new product is the successor to the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2, or indeed the 7s Gen 2, but in reality it can be placed between These two chips.
The Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 is manufactured using TSMC’s 4nm manufacturing process and has a 1 + 3 + 4 core CPU configuration. The core of the Kryo architecture runs at 2.63 GHz, and the three powered cores clock at 2.4 GHz. Calibration of energy-efficient cores at a frequency of 1.8 GHz.
According to the manufacturer, processor performance has improved by 15 percent and graphics performance by 50 percent compared to last year’s Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chip. Additionally, the new device uses 20 percent more power, at least in Qualcomm’s internal tests. One of the components of the Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 is the Qualcomm Hexagon NPU, which delivers 60 percent faster AI performance, also compared to the older Snapdragon 7 Gen 1. The chipset’s GPU supports OpenGL ES 3.2, OpenCL 2.0 FP, and Vulkan 1.3 APIs.
The new chipset supports 4K at 60Hz or Full HD+ at 168Hz displays. The chipset also received the Spectra image processing ISP module, which handles cameras up to 200MP without any problems, and recording 4K HDR videos at 60fps doesn’t let it down either. The chipset also includes the Snapdragon X63 5G modem, capable of download speeds of up to 5Gbps on mmWave and sub-6GHz frequencies. No data connectivity kit would be complete without Bluetooth 5.3 and Wi-Fi 6E. The first smartphones with the Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 processor may arrive later this month, from manufacturers like Honor and Vivo.
