Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Takes on Apple’s A17 Pro: Benchmark Battle Unfolds

Published on

In the ever-competitive realm of smartphone technology, Qualcomm has upped the ante with the release of its latest flagship chip, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. Benchmark results not only show that this new chip holds its ground but also gives Apple’s cutting-edge 3nm chip in the iPhone 15 Pro a run for its money.

Qualcomm proudly asserts that this chip boasts a remarkable 30% increase in raw processing power while delivering superior power efficiency. Notably, it places significant emphasis on artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, featuring the new Hexagon NPU, which is a staggering 98% faster. This advancement enables impressive on-device AI models, including stable diffusion and photo expansion.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 operates on a 4nm chipset, featuring a 1+5+2 core layout. At its core is the formidable Cortex-X4 clocked at 3.3 GHz, complemented by five Cortex-A720 performance cores at 3.2 GHz and two Cortex-A520 efficiency cores at 2.3 GHz, according to reports by 9to5Google.

Benchmark Standoff

Qualcomm has provided a glimpse of benchmark results, and the numbers are indeed intriguing, particularly the performance retention seen in back-to-back tests. But how does the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 stack up against its competition?

GSMArena offers valuable context for these results, with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 achieving an impressive AnTuTu score of 2,139,281, surpassing Apple’s score of 1,487,203.

In essence, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is stepping into the ring as a formidable challenger to Apple’s flagship A17 Pro chip. What adds to the astonishment is that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 operates on a 4nm chip, whereas Apple’s A17 Pro is built on a 3nm architecture.

Real-Life Performance: Awaiting the Showdown

While the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is putting up a solid fight in benchmarks, the real-world performance may differ based on the operating system and specific tasks. To ascertain how this new Android chip fares against the iPhone 15 Pro/Max, we’ll have to await the global release of the Xiaomi 14 series, the first to feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. This release may provide a valuable perspective on real-life performance and determine if it can outshine the competition.
