Qualcomm’s new cheaper chips gun for gaming and AI

Newsroom Sep 9, 2022

The Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 promises a 35% improvement in gaming performance and is the first Qualcomm chip at this level to support 200Mp photo capture.

Overview:

  • Qualcomm aims its two new mobile processors, the 6 Gen 1 and 4 Gen 1, directly at mid-range and budget phones.
  • The 6 Gen 1, which joins the naming convention of the similarly weirdly named 8 Gen 1 and 8+ Gen 1 allows phones that use it to take advantage of better HDR support.
  • The 6 Gen 1 has the 7th generation of Qualcomm’s AI engine that claims to improve AI performance by three times compared to the older Snapdragon 695 5G.

Qualcomm's 6 Gen 1 and 4 Gen 1 mobile CPUs are designed for mid-range and low-cost phones. The Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 processor, which was just unveiled, claims to boost gaming performance by up to 35% and is the first Qualcomm chip of this calibre to handle 200Mp picture capture. In contrast, Qualcomm claims that the Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 can support 108Mp photos, improve gaming performance by 10%, and support multiple days of battery life.

Qualcomm manager and his plan

According to Deepu John, senior director of product management at Qualcomm, Both Snapdragon 6 and Snapdragon 4 deliver advances in their respective series to allow breakthroughs in capture, networking, entertainment, and AI. These new mobile platforms support our clients' delivery of cutting-edge consumer offerings. To keep their new features functioning, smartphone manufacturers require ever-better CPUs as phones continue to grow better.

The finest mid-range and top-budget phones now include smartphone technology previously only seen in the most costly phones. The 6 Gen 1 enables phones that utilise it to benefit from improved HDR capability. It continues the naming practice of the equally bizarrely called 8 Gen 1 and 8+ Gen 1. The new nomenclature allows Qualcomm to do away with the "5G" moniker, as 5G is already a given for smartphone processors. According to Qualcomm, the AI engine in the 6 Gen 1 is the seventh generation, and it boasts a three-fold increase in performance over the Snapdragon 695 5G. Manufacturers of Android devices may utilise this to power innovative software features like activity tracking or the camera app, for instance.

The processor will also enable connecting to the most current WiFi 6E network standard, the first time a 6-series Snapdragon supports it, helping games maintain at least 60 frames per second and handling all the other background tasks consumers unconsciously anticipate every day from their phones. The Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 is Qualcomm's first processor made using a 6nm process, which the firm claims improve overall performance and battery life. Compared to the Snapdragon 480 5G, it should increase GPU and CPU output by 15% and 10%, respectively. Of course, the exact numbers may vary depending on the other hardware in the individual phones.

As voice assistants like Google Assistants often slow on cheaper phones, the CPU should potentially speed up voice assistant use. Similar to the 6 Gen 1, the 4 Gen 1 enables a 5G connection, which is essential as the newest wireless network standards around the globe gain more widespread use. Shortly, with its iQoo sub-brand, Motorola and Vivo will use one or both CPUs, according to Qualcomm. One of the first smartphones with the 4 Gen 1 will be the iQoo Z6 Lite. Four Gen 1 devices will ship in Q3 of this year, and six Gen 1 devices are anticipated to arrive in Q1 of 2023.

I’m a creative thinker. I think it’s important to approach tasks and issues from different angles, rather than doing what has always been done. By having an open mind and taking a different approach.
