Qualcomm has once again let down Windows’ efforts on ARM by offering a new processor that can’t beat Apple’s current Apple M1 processor.
Benchmarks for what is believed to be the 3rd generation Snapdragon 8cx (codename “SC8280”) has been leaked on Benchmark.
This shows a single-core performance of 1010 and a multi-core performance of 5335.
This is a significant boost from the second-generation Snapdragon 8cx processor, which has a single-core score of 778 and Multi-core score of 3028, but pales in comparison to the old Apple M1’s 1739 single-core and 7600 multi-core scores. It looks even worse than the Apple M1 Max series of processors, with a single-core score of 1613 and a multi-core score of 10664.
The new third-generation Snapdragon 8cx processor features Gold and Gold+ cores running at 2.69Ghz for better performance, instead of the old efficiency cores, but still clearly doesn’t measure up well. Apple’s best.
The processor under test appears to be a Qualcomm reference design being worked on by Lenovo and we can only hope the optimization will significantly improve this score by the time the device hits the market. school.
