Qualcomm releases official Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 benchmarks. At the Snapdragon Tech Summit 2023, Qualcomm revealed the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3’s benchmark results, exposing the chip’s performance in AnTuTu 10, Geekbench 6, PC Mark, GFXBench, 3DMark, AI Mark, MLPerf, JetStream 2.1, and Speedometer 2.1.
The newly released SoC scored 2.13 million in AnTuTu 10, which is around 30% higher than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, and approximately 2300 (single-core) and 7500 (multi-core) on Geekbench 6.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is constructed on TSMC’s 4nm process and features an eight-core CPU with one Cortex-X4 clocked at 3.3 GHz, five Cortex-A720s clocked at up to 3.2 GHz, and two Cortex-A520s clocked at 2.3 GHz.

CPU and GPU Performance
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is manufactured using a 4nm technology. It includes a new CPU core arrangement with a 3.3 GHz Prime Cortex X4 core. This Prime core is followed by five 3.2 GHz Performance cores and two 2.3 GHz Efficiency cores.
Qualcomm claims that the new Kryo CPU combination is 30% quicker and 20% more power efficient. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 also has an improved GPU that provides 25% more performance. Aside from being more powerful, the new Adreno GPU uses 25% less electricity. In terms of gameplay, it improves ray tracing performance by 1.5x.
The Chipset’s Ai Feature
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is billed as having the fastest mobile Stable Diffusion “in the world.” It is capable of producing one image each second. Qualcomm and Snapchat are collaborating to make it available on the app. The chipset also has the most recent Sensing Hub. It provides always-on power and low-power customisation.
The camera is one of the areas where the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3’s generative AI capabilities may be fully utilised. Features like Video Object Eraser can let you remove certain objects and individuals from a scene. Furthermore, AI-powered Night Vision video could allow for the capture of spectacular footage in low-light circumstances.
Qualcomm also demonstrated the ability to capture a picture and subsequently extend the surroundings using on-device AI. It’s similar to the Adobe Firefly function in Photoshop.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 semantic segmentation enables up to 12 levels. It recognises and optimises the hair, faces, sky, and outfits, for those who are curious. It is also compatible with the devices’ back and front cameras. Qualcomm is emphasising the potential for both sides to be engaged at the same time. It could be useful in a variety of situations.
Always-on cameras, for example, may unlock with a face and scan a QR code at the same moment. In addition, “Vlogger’s View” allows you to capture the feed while superimposing the front feed over the main recording.
In addition, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 supports Dolby HDR photo capture. It supports nearly a billion different colours. In comparison, JPEG can only capture 16.7 million different colour tones.
And, as before, manufacturers and software developers must decide whether to implement features based on all of the new capabilities. This means that they will not be available on all Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 devices.
