Qualcomm’s Snapdragon “8+ Gen 1” salvage operation moves the chip to TSMC - Ars Technica
May 20, 2022 35 secs

Qualcomm's mid-cycle "plus" chip refresh—the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1—has been announced.

As usual, Qualcomm is promising some modest improvements over the existing 8 Gen 1 chip.

The company said the chip will provide "10 percent faster CPU performance," thanks to a 200 MHz peak CPU boost (up to 3.2 GHz now) and a 10 percent faster GPU.

For the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus, Qualcomm is moving the chip from Samsung Foundry to TSMC, which is apparently where the power improvements are coming from.

The GPU managed to improve for 2022, but to see the CPU horsepower decrease after Qualcomm claimed it would be 20 percent faster is a major disappointment. After a foundry change and a CPU MHz boost, Qualcomm's 2022 CPU might finally be faster than its 2021 counterpart.
