The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G Cipher Platform (or SD8cx Gen2, SC8180XP) is an ARM- grounded SoC for Windows laptops. It integrates a analogous CPU part as the Snapdragon 855 (same cores but without the Prime Core point) and is manufactured in 7nm at Samsung. The 4 Kryo 495 Gold cores are grounded on the ARM Cortex-A76 armature (for performance) and clocked at3.15 GHz under cargo. The 4 Kryo 495 Tableware cores are small ARM Cortex-A55 cores for power effectiveness and clocked at1.8 GHz under cargo (most likely).

Compared to the precursor, the Snapdragon 8cx, the Gen 2 offers advanced timepiece pets and an intertwined 5G modem (X55 withSub-6 GHz and mm Wave support). Wi-Fi was also banged up to Wi-Fi 6

The processor performance should be analogous to an Intel Core i5 8th Gen U-series (e.g., i5-8250U) according to Qualcomm. Still, this is only the case for native ARM64 collected Windows apps which aren't that numerous (inmid-2019). 32- bit operations and games for AMD/ Intel run in a rather slow emulation and 64- bit apps will not start at all (but an impersonator should come in Windows in 2021).

The integrated Adreno 680 plates card could also be a bit advanced clocked.

The chip is veritably power effective as it’s produced at TSMC in the ultramodern 7 processes. Thus, laptops using the Snapdragon 8cx can be passively cooled (no addict) and shouldn't garrote under constant cargo.
