Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 with 3nm: TSMC Foundry

Weibo @DigitalGossipStation broke the news that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 model number is SM8750, codenamed SUN, built on TSMC 3nm process, which will be Qualcomm's first 3nm cell phone chip.

It is reported that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen4 uses the TSMC N3E process, while the already mass-produced Apple A17 Pro uses the TSMC N3B process.

Insiders say that Apple's N3B node on the A17 Pro and M3 is more expensive, so TSMC will move to a higher yield, relatively low-cost N3E, and Apple's A18 Pro will also use the N3E process.

In addition, Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 another big change is to say goodbye to the Arm architecture, the first time to use the self-developed Nuvia architecture, will use two Nuvia Phoenix performance cores and six Nuvia Phoenix M cores of the new dual-cluster eight-core CPU architecture program, which will be a major change in the history of Qualcomm Snapdragon 5G SoC.

From the information exposed by @DigitalGossipStation, the comprehensive performance of Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 this time around is to be expected against Apple's A18 Pro, which will debut next year.
