Promising Gaming Performance Seen in Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 Engineering Sample 

Snapdragon 8 Gen 4. With phones featuring Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset now available, rumors are circulating about its upcoming successor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 system-on-chip (SoC). Recently, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 engineering sample was shown smoothly running the notoriously demanding game Genshin Impact.

Twitter user @faridofanani96 tweeted about testing the unreleased Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chip playing Genshin Impact at 1080p resolution for 45 minutes straight. They stated it maintained what appeared to be a consistent 60fps frame rate throughout. 

Since Genshin Impact taxes even top-tier phones’ processing power, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 engineering sample showing promising, long-term performance bodes well. And considering further optimization on final production silicon, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 could run Genshin Impact flawlessly at 60fps maximum settings.  

Rumored Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 Specs

Additional rumors point to huge graphics improvements with the next Qualcomm chipset. Leaked benchmarks of a Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chip showed its Adreno 830 GPU scoring 10% higher than Apple’s M2 processor in the 3DMark Wild Life Extreme Stress Test. This is an impressive feat, given the M2’s debut in larger computing devices versus smartphones.

Also planned for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 is the new Oryon CPU customized by Qualcomm, as confirmed for 2024 smartphones. Since the Snapdragon X Elite PC has touted exceptional performance with Oryon cores, expectations are high for the next Snapdragon flagship chip.

All this indicates considerable gains over the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 that could give it a leg up on rivals like MediaTek’s upcoming Dimensity 9400. While no slouch itself, the Dimensity 9400 is expected to utilize a combination of off-the-shelf Cortex-X5 and Cortex-A715 cores from Arm.

In conclusion, gaming on phones with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 next year could be vastly improved over even today’s best Android phones. With custom Oryon cores and an enhanced Adreno GPU, it aims to claim the crown as the premier mobile chipset.
