Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx Gen 4 Challenges Apple’s M1 – A Turning Point in PC Chips

Benchmark Data Reveals Qualcomm's Competitive Edge

A Comparison with Apple’s M1

Comparatively, Apple’s M1 chip scores 8,315 on the multi-core test, positioning Qualcomm’s latest offering ahead in the multi-core domain. This can be attributed to the 8cx Gen 4’s eight performance cores and four efficiency cores, which is twice the number of performance cores found in Apple’s M1.

However, an important distinction remains evident in the results: Apple’s M1 maintains a significant lead in the single-core test, boasting a score of 2,334, nearly double that of Qualcomm’s best effort. This demonstrates that a substantial gap persists between the two products.
