Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 platform will support LPDDR6 in 2024
Next year’s fourth-generation Snapdragon 8 platform is very important for Qualcomm.

It will be equipped with a custom Oryon core integrated with NUVIA technology.

It is likely to be its first chip manufactured with a 3nm process, and it may also bring other upgrades. Like introducing support for faster, more efficient memory.

Recently, some netizens revealed that Qualcomm’s fourth-generation Snapdragon 8 platform will support the new generation of LPDDR6.

The performance improvement brought by the customized Oryon core may be one of the reasons why Qualcomm turned to faster memory, and it may benefit from the LPDDR6 standard. Higher memory bandwidth for better performance potential.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 platform will support LPDDR6 in 2024

At present, there is a 30% bandwidth gap between Samsung’s LPDDR5 and LPDDR5X, and there is also a 20% power consumption difference, while LPDDR6 will obviously have more advantages and will be more efficient for flagship smartphones.

Samsung is at the forefront of LPDDR6 technology, although the specific standards or technical indicators of LPDDR6 are not yet clear.

It is understood that the CPU part of the fourth-generation Snapdragon 8 will adopt a 2+6 architecture, with two performance cores code-named “Nuvia Phoenix” and six energy-efficiency cores code-named “Nuvia Phoenix M”. Leaked test results show that , It even beats Apple’s M2 chip in Geekbench 5’s multi-threaded benchmark.

Recently, it was reported that Qualcomm’s future Snapdragon 8 platform may adopt a dual-generation factory strategy, which is TSMC‘s N3E process and Samsung’s 3nm GAA process, which may be realized in early 2024.

The regular version of the fourth-generation Snapdragon 8 chip is manufactured using TSMC’s N3E process, while the version manufactured by Samsung’s 3nm GAA process may be called “Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 for Galaxy” and is dedicated to the Galaxy S25 series smartphones.
