Qualcomm will soon release the 8cx Gen4 to compete with Apple's upcoming M Series

With Apple's upcoming M-series in mind, Qualcomm is secretly working on a rival processor. In the past, there have been rumors that Qualcomm is creating a new processor under the codename "Hamoa." The soon-to-be-released chipset will reportedly be marketed as "Snapdragon 8cx Gen4", according to new information that has lately appeared online. The most current specifications of Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon 8cx Gen 4 are really exciting, and if the SoC truly competes with Apple's M-series SoCs, we will have some serious rivalry in the market.

Popular Twitter tipper Kuba Wojciechowski had already mentioned the 12-core SoC, and he now asserts that the chip's name will be Snapdragon 8cx Gen 4. Several chipsets are apparently being developed by Qualcomm, but the one that will perform the best is claimed to include eight performance cores and four power-efficient ones. He leaves out the question of whether Qualcomm's Oryon cores, specialized products made possible by the company's acquisition of Nuvia, will be found in the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 4.

Furthermore, according to him, each block of four cores has an L3 cache of 8 MB and a shared L2 cache of 12 MB. There are rumors that the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 4 will use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2's Adreno 740 graphics processor, meaning Qualcomm is not making a new GPU for it. While still a powerful GPU, its limitations may become apparent when utilized in Windows notebooks as opposed to mobile devices. On paper, the data he presents is still intriguing because it shows that the performance cores of the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 4 were tested at a frequency of 3.40GHz while the energy-efficient cores were tested at 2.50GHz.
