Qualcomm could be redesigning the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4


Qualcomm and Apple's chipsets power devices that run on completely different platforms. But they are still in competition with each other over who can create the most powerful hardware. So much so that following the launch of the Apple M4, Qualcomm could be thinking of redesigning its upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chipset.


According to a post on X by @jasonwill101, Qualcomm is looking to finalize the redesign of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 in June. The chipset was originally intended to come with a targeted frequency of 4.0GHz and above. But now the post claims that Qualcomm will raise the bar with a new targeted frequency of 4.26GHz.



Apparently Qualcomm is doing this in anticipation of the A18 chipsets that will launch later this year. The M4 is used to power Apple's latest iPads and possibly future Mac computers. It is built on TSMC's latest 3nm process. The A18 chipsets are expected to follow in its footsteps.. This means there's a chance that the A18 could be just as powerful.


In light of that, Qualcomm is probably hoping to narrow the gap or even potentially surpass the A18 with this redesign of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4. Recent reports suggests that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 could be a beast in terms of gaming. We'll probably have to wait for the release of both the Gen 4 and A18 to get a better idea.
