Don McGuire, Qualcomm’s Chief Marketing Officer, shared the buzz at MWC 2024 that the highly-anticipated Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 is set to launch this October at the Snapdragon Summit. The star of the show? The cutting-edge ‘Oryon’ CPU.

Early performance indicators hint at something extraordinary – whispers suggest that the chip might deliver even better performance than expected. Rumor has it that it could handle Genshin Impact at a smooth 60fps and possibly at a higher resolution.


Adding to the excitement, a recent report claims that the Adreno 830 GPU in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 outshone Apple’s M2 chip by a whopping 10% in the 3DMark Wild Life Extreme Stress Test.

Quite a feat, considering the M2 is designed for larger devices like Macs, right?

But wait, there’s more! Before the grand debut of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, Qualcomm is cooking up another surprise! It’s an interim chip codenamed SM8635. This rumored powerhouse is said to pack a punch with a Cortex-X4 core and an Adreno 735 GPU, aiming to fill the gap between the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and Gen 3 in terms of performance.

Get ready for an exciting fall in the tech world as Qualcomm unveils these groundbreaking chips! Can’t wait to see what’s next, can you?
