Qualcomm schedules March 17 event, new Snapdragon 7 chipset incoming

Yordan, 10 March 2023

Qualcomm set an event for March 17. The American company is expected to introduce a new chipset from the Snapdragon 7 series, likely Gen 2, as the Gen 1 variant arrived in the spring of 2022.

The name of the new platform is not confirmed, and some rumors are suggesting Snapdragon 7+ Gen 1, but a year later it's more likely we'll see Snapdragon 7 Gen 2 to match the Snapdragon 8 flagship naming scheme.

There is scarce info on this new chipset, but according to one leaked Geekbench listing, the Snapdragon SM7475 chipset has one Cortex-X2 core clocked at 2.92 GHz, three Cortex-A710 units ticking at 2.5 GHz and four 1.8GHz Cortex-A510 cores. The GPU is said to be Adreno 725 with 580Hz clock speed, one leakster claimed.

If all the info is correct, this will be the first time Snapdragon uses Cortex-X2 on a midrange chipset. The platform is said to be built by TSMC on the 4nm process technology.

With the 2023 processors (X2, A715, A515) it was ARM who also introduced a new DynamIQ protocol which keeps upto x12 cores per system. What I listed as a hypothetical is the best Qualcomm can achieve while relying on Stock configurations. The li...
