Snapdragon 8cx Gen 4 Engineering Sample spotted on Geekbench

The Snapdragon 8cx Gen 4 is rumoured to be Qualcomm’s first SoC to feature the company’s proprietary Oryon cores, and a number of the SoC’s specifications have since been discovered on Geekbench. Although the chipset receives poor single-core and multi-core scores, the good news is that the information you are about to read is based on an engineering sample.

The Geekbench screenshots’ reference to the codename “Hamoa” suggests that this is indeed Qualcomm’s upcoming silicon. Unfortunately, data discovered by Twitter user Gustave Monce reveals rather low single-core and multi-core scores, indicating that the silicon is still undergoing testing and probably needs more adjustments before it can deliver performance figures that compete with Apple’s M-series.

Also a “Power Plan” was spotted in the Geekbench screenshot, indicating that users will likely have the choice of allowing the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 4 to run at a higher performance level or lowering its clock speeds to deliver longer battery life. The engineering sample allegedly underwent testing with Windows 11, and this feature is typically present in Windows desktops and notebooks. The Power Plan was set to “Balanced” at the time.

A previous leak of the upcoming Snapdragon 8cx Gen 4 specifications from the past mentioned its 12-core CPU configuration.

The same configuration, showing eight performance cores and four power-efficient ones, was spotted on Geekbench. The low-power cores are supported to operate at 2.50GHz, despite the screenshots’ listing of 2.38GHz as the lowest clock speed. However, Geekbench always displays the lowest frequencies, so we do not think this is a cause for concern.

The engineering sample has 16GB of memory, which is not out of the ordinary considering that the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 4 can support up to 64GB of LPDDR5 RAM. The Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 is actually faster than the engineering sample, which was unexpected, but this is typical behaviour for engineering samples, so there is no cause for concern.
