ARMs Race | Newly discovered Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 benchmarks on par with Core i7 and SQ3 to perform even better

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 has popped up online again and this time benchmarks show choosing an Arm PC may come without having to making compromises app compatibility and power.

A new Geekbench listing appears to show a Lenovo PC powered by the 3rd-generation Snapdragon 8cx earning a single-core score of 1,010 and a multi-core score of 5,335. In contrast the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 only had a single-core score of 797 and a muti-core score of 3,006 with Surface Pro X hitting over 800 in single-core and 3050 3150 in muti-core scores.

A multi-core score of 5335, put the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 in the ballpark of laptops powered by Intel’s Core i7-1165G7 and while these scores still fall short of Apple’s M1 series chips, Qualcomm believes the chips coming as a result of its Nuvia acquisition will finally go to-toe-to Apple’s M1 series chips.
