Pls, 13 May 2024Efficiency is always a focus, 865 is way lower efficiency t... moreSnapdragon 865 was good for its time but is showing it's age now. Snapdragon 8+gen1 has slightly better efficiency then the snapdragon 8 gen 2 improves on that. It would seem good optimisation is needed for snapdragon 8 gen3. Early devices showed worse efficiency than gen 2 but some devices with decent cooling showed promising performance equal to gen 2 in efficiency albeit running a little warmer. Personally I'd say the snapdragon 8 gen 2 is the best chipset since snapdragon 865..the snapdragon non plus 8gen1 and snapdragon 888 were built on Samsungs process which also dishes out rubbish exynos chips so their poor efficiency made the snapdragon 865 a great choice but it can't compete with newer tsmc made snapdragons.

        Remembering year 2010 _ 14 years ago when iphone4 was said marginally surpass playstation 2 graphic gaming power . Yes the Ps2 , 6th gen gaming console which 10 years before iphone 4 released . Console fan trolled mobile innovation was 10 years late to cath up .
        gsmarena become war field toxic flame comment between both fanboy .
        There is a war between console and mobile community .
        Another argument at that time :
        console gpu vs .mobile gpu
        android vs . ios
        apple vs. samsung
        Sony vs. apple [ premium brand war ]

              So there are only 2 types of tegra x1.

              1 - used in 2015 shield tv and switch v1
              2 - used in 2019 shield tv and switch v2/lite/oled

                    1 - there are three tegra x1 chips for the switch.
                    Wrong, only 2 v1 - erista , v2 - mariko

                    2- logan is first tegra x1.

                    Wrong its codename of tegra k1, lookup announcment on anandtech.

                      Pls read, 13 May 2024Read properly, v1 and v2 switch use erista and mariko. Nob... moreMy comment didn't imply either, maybe you miss read my comment, I just mentioned there are different variant of that soc, first one, 2nd one used in first switch and 3rd one used in 2nd switch that's it.

                        Anonymous, 13 May 2024You and other need to stop guessing price of SoC based on r... more1. Both 8s and 8 gen 3 aren't fabbed in latest node

                        2. Both 8s and 8+ gen 1 use Tsmc 4nm, 8+ gen 1 also use this node.

                        3. Die size of soc highly determine price of soc, the bigger the die the fewer unit you get from wafer, the higher the price. it's not space magic it's just small fact you fail to agree,

                        -8s gen 3 is 8.4mm x 10.66 which is roughly 89MM^2
                        -8+ gen 1 was 99MM^2
                        -8 gen 3 is 10.71mm x 12.81mm = ~137MM^2

                        With comparable wafer price you can see there which soc Qualcomm get more.

                        Also 8s and all previous top midrange/Highend soc lack premium features from flagship,

                        -8+ gen 1 has LTE cat 24 while 8s has LTE Cat 22,
                        -8+ has 10gigabit 5G modem 8s has 6.5gigabit one
                        -8+ has slow motion 4K 120fps while 8s limit at 1080p etc.

                        As you can see 8s lack many features available in 8+ gen 1 while being smaller than it, so it's educated guess that it's cheaper too, and no Oem will take $200 soc and make $270 phone thats don't make sense at all, there would be plenty of sd 8 gen 3 phone by now, the fact even Chinese flagship are expensive this year shows that.

                        8s gen 3 phones are priced same as 7+ gen 2. last year, both Xiaomi and Realme who had 7+ phone already anounced their successor and no much price difference, and we know how 8+ gen 1 was positioned against 7+ gen 2

                              I can easily say we have reached the point where SoC manufacturer needs to focus more on battery efficiency instead of more performance. Even to most average consumers, Snapdragon 865/865+/870 is still plenty powerful today.

                                  Android needs to work together to improve performance for productivity. Samsung and many other android phones has 4k way before an iPhone even knew what it was. They also way better sensor tech and many other great features. But the ecosystem has to work together to smoothen and atreamline things better. Android can easily replace the majority of laptops and many other devices. But, its slowed down for no explainable reasons. This doesn't suggest that Apple hasn't slowed down.

                                  I also suspect that these unnecessary trade sanctions are a huge contributing factor in many ways. That and tech thought paralysis. That's why smartphones haven't replaced ILCs yet.
