Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 proves itself in tests on a prototype from ASUS

Last Friday, Qualcomm unveiled the new Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 top-of-the-line chipset to the world, promising a notable increase in

performance at reducedenergy consumption. And although the novelty has already managed to be noted in AnTuTu tests, a much more complete test of the chip was carried out by XDA specialists, who received an engineering sample of a smartphone based on it from ASUS. The opponents were OnePlus 10 Pro (as a typical Android flagship) and Nubia Red Magic 7 (as a gaming phone with powerful active cooling), both running on Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

As can be seen from the graphs, in all testsThe performance of Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 surpassed RedMagic 7, and the gap compared to OnePlus 10 Pro is even greater. But in the energy efficiency test, the newcomer still lost to the brainchild of OnePlus, but only because the latter uses an aggressive throttling system that suffocates the chip. As a result, the researchers claim that Qualcomm's claims of a 10% increase in CPU performance and -20% power consumption are similar to the truth. Nevertheless, the real state of affairs will be known only with the release of the first mass devices.
