New Snapdragon drawers: so hot that you burn your fingers

New Snapdragon drawers: so hot that you burn your fingers

Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 disappointed in an early performance test with the Motorola Edge X30 which is one of the first chipsets.

This does not bode well for the laptop chip

It is the first generation targeting mobile phones and is the highest new segment of the company, while 3 generation As we mentioned when the company revealed the new chips in November/December, they were created for Windows ARM laptops.

The problem with the Gen 1 chip is that it reaches very high temperatures and must be forced to slow down after a few minutes in the FPS test.

As you can see from the FPS numbers, the chip makes it particularly weak in the second half of the test.
This is the result of the iPhone 13 Pro Max in the same beta game and from the same tests. The tester notes that the Apple mobile phone actually ran the game a few minutes before the test started, so it was already hot. In any case, the best model from Apple is also not able to keep 60 frames per second throughout the test.

It’s getting too hot and it should stop working

The tester drove for 10 minutes in the “Genshin Impact.” At first, everything works fine at around 60 fps in the first few minutes, but after more than two minutes inside the test, the fps drops to 43, finishing at 53 fps in the first half of testing. The power consumption during this part of the test is 8.7 watts.

In the second part of the test, the average is 48 fps, but it is often below 40 fps with a w consumption of 6.3, which is better, but because the chip is too hot anyway, so it can not maintain the FPS rate acceptable. In one of the tests, the Motorola Edge X30 reached a temperature of more than 60 degrees, which is very uncomfortable for the hands. Hopefully other manufacturers can improve the chipset better. We think we’ll see Gen 1 gaming mobiles with an active fan system.

The MediaTek Dimensity 9000 has already proven to be faster in some early tests. Qualcomm will also face stiff competition from the Samsung Exynos 2200.
