The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 could be excellent for gaming – Phandroid

As fast and as powerful as a CPU might be, there are certain limitations. This is why gaming PCs usually have a dedicated GPU to process some of the more intensive tasks. If you’re a mobile gamer, then you might want to consider waiting for phones that come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 as it is said to be a great chipset for gaming.

This is according to a post on Weibo by tipster Digital Chat Station who has revealed additional details about the upcoming chipset. According to the post, they claim that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 could launch with a new Adreno 830 GPU. The new GPU will come with a clockspeed of 935MHz and support for frame interpolation. This will allow the chipset to run games like Genshin Impact at 1080p resolution at 120 FPS.

The concept of frame interpolation isn’t exactly new. It is available on modern day GPUs for PCs from NVIDIA and AMD. Now the good news is that if you bought a phone this year or don’t plan to upgrade anytime soon, the report claims that it might not be exclusive to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4.

The post suggests that Qualcomm could bring the feature to previous-gen chips via a firmware update. This includes the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and Snapdragon 8s Gen 3. Despite reports of a high price, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 has the potential to be a great gaming chipset.

This will force companies to seek more affordable alternatives. Qualcomm has confirmed that the chipset will debut this October. Xiaomi is also expected to be the first to use the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 4.
