The Snapdragon 898 is expected to be Qualcomm’s next flagship, and from the latest details, we can see that it was revealed much sooner than expected. As it happens, the Snapdragon Tech Summit will begin on November 30th, and if the date is any indication, we can see the top SoC announced on the date above.
Snapdragon 898 will be mass-produced on Samsung’s next generation 4nm process; It will have a CPU configuration with three clusters, as well as a Snapdragon 888
Qualcomm has announced that the 2021 Snapdragon Tech Summit will begin on November 30 and end on December 2. Like the Snapdragon 888, we expect the Snapdragon 898 to be unveiled on the first day of the event and to show off the improvements San Diego has made in terms of performance and power efficiency. We expect some changes, because unlike the Snapdragon 888, the Snapdragon 898 is said to be mass-produced by Samsung’s 4nm process.
Previous predictions show that the Snapdragon 898 will deliver around a 20 percent improvement in performance, with the latest results revealing Qualcomm’s upcoming SoC showing promising gains in both single-core and multi-core tests. In addition to the obvious star of the show, we can take a look at the next generation of Qualcomm chipsets that will power laptops.
As it happened, Qualcomm is working on a competitor to the Apple M1, which is really in demand at this point, as Apple pretty much gets away with bringing powerful and efficient ARM-based chips to its laptops. Although nothing will be revealed during the Snapdragon Tech Summit in 2021, we will at least know that the upcoming Exynos 2200 has a competitor and it will be interesting to see how both SoCs perform in a number of tests.
As for the Snapdragon 898 specs, this silicon will likely have a three-cluster CPU configuration like its predecessor, and we hope to see ARM’s Cortex-X2 make the right gains over the Cortex-X1. ISP and DSP improvements are also expected, as Qualcomm introduces a new AI coprocessor that intelligently determines when to increase clock speeds and when to leave cores idle to preserve battery life.
Looking forward to the improvements to the Snapdragon 898. Are you? Then share your thoughts below in the comments.
