Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 with ‘Oryon’ CPU to launch October 2024

At MWC 2024, Qualcomm has announced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 launches in October this year at its upcoming Snapdragon Summit event — the same month as last year’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 launch.

Qualcomm Chief Marketing Officer Don McGuire shared on X that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will feature custom ‘Oryon’ CPU cores. It is reportedly built on TSMC’s second-generation 3-nanometer process node (possibly N3E).

Furthermore, recent reports suggest that this chip will likely hit 4.0GHz max frequency packing two high-performance cores and six high-efficiency cores. This is significantly more powerful than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 with 3.3GHz max clock speed (Cortex-X4 core).

For years, the chipmaker has been using Kryo CPU cores and this year’s Snapdragon flagship chip will see a new CPU design.

Last year, the Qualcomm unveiled the Snapdragon X Elite 15, an Arm-based chipset for PCs, boasting the said Oryon CPU. Which is said to be more powerful than Apple’s latest M-series chips. Now, it’s finally coming to mobile chipsets.

Additionally, Qualcomm is expected to introduce another 8 Gen Series chip, codenamed as SM8635. It will reportedly use one Cortex-X4 core at 2.9GHz clockspeed and Adreno 735 GPU.

This is likely positioned between Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and Gen 3 and will likely be called the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Lite or Snapdragon 8s Gen 2.

JM's highest stat is probably his curious ardor to anything tech—electronics and gaming in particular. He certainly heeds utmost regard to specsheet, visuals, and rule of thirds. If creativity and wit sometimes leave JM's system, watching films, anime and a good stroll for memes are his approved therapeutic claims.
