26 November 2021
Is this what the new flagship is actually be called instead of "Snapdragon 8 Gen 1"?

8X gen 2 8Xgen3 etc???
Stuupid naming.
And when comes to medium CPUs and low range???

Thats name is totally stupid.
Rather they should use one more X like Dimensity 9000 they should have Snapdragon 8000 a sa first CPU of a new generation.

Samsung sony phones have power settings which you have 4 options too chose so it doesn't throttle. Don't complain and nag, I use power saver mode I get no throttling, but on standard or enhanced mode it drains battery a d heats up, but justify the more power.

The Sony Pro uses the most expensive copper cooling.

There are much superior inbuilt stress tests which run for far longer inside apps like Antutu and 3dmark.

It cost Sony £70 too use buy .
Every other manufacturers 90% don't or use anything too cool it down

It uses liquid nitrogen or there are 3 other options to use, depending on the cost .you can't be that clueless?

Fans are cheap rubbish junk. Some use stainless steel blades on fan majority use plastic, since stainless and titanium are expensive.

The comments are a warzone so I'm just gonna give my opinion of the name instead of joining in the 'funny hot cpu haha' sh*tfest happening.

I think the Gx could stand for a few things obviously, the article stating the G could stand for higher GPU clocks is one, and the x meaning high-end.
I think it COULD possibly mean 'Gaming' though, and the Gx could be a gaming chipset aimed for high-end gaming phones.

Actually, I have a few predictions for the naming they might be using:
- Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, possibly for upper mid-range devices
- Snapdragon 8x Gen 1, for flagship devices
- Snapdragon 8G Gen 1, for higher GPU clock for gaming oriented devices
- Snapdragon 8Gx Gen 1, for higher GPU clock for high-end / flagship gaming devices

These were just made from the top of my head so I'm not sure if this will be the actual naming for the chipsets, but I won't be surprised if it actually turns out to be true.
Wouldn't be surprised if they do similar naming for the 7, 6 and 4 series in the future too.

All the new phones with the 888 use multiple cooling systems too disperse it but only the Lenovo Legion Duel 2 seems to be able to reduce it so much by turning the entire back of the phone into a multi cooling system which draws a lot of power. Others bundle up super cooling fans that can reach -1°C.

Snapdragon fanboys cannot accept the fact their chip throttles like 30% more depending on the smartphone. Keep dreaming!

Nothing too do with snapdragon or throttling
Blame manufacturers not using premium expensive cooling like double copper Chambers.

[deleted post]Do you have any idea how powerful the x1 cores are and having 3x A78 cores is equivalent to Intel in than Intel i3.

Mu S21ultra 16gb ram is rooted with Custom Rom and kernels with upgraded voltage threshold and cpu governor's and I have now 3 options too have all 8 cores active at higher threshold having the cpu all 8 cores idol's at 80%

Don't talk or say without knowing. Grow up kid little boy.

With the soon to be released Qualcomm snapdragon 898 chip which will be succeed the 888 chip, my hope is that the 898 will not have the throttling and heat issues the 888 suffers from. If the 898 chip can have those 2 problems eliminated then it'll be a great chip even if it's benchmarks only matches the 888 since the 888 benchmarks are pretty good. So my hope is that Qualcomm focused more on the 898 not having those 2 problems of the 888 over having higher benchmarks than the 888.
