This week, evleaks, who broke the news, gave detailed information on the SM8450 chip.
Since the part code of the Snapdragon 888 in Qualcomm is SM8350, according to the naming convention, SM8450 is expected to correspond to the new generation of flagship SoC.
For details, source Mauri QHD revealed that the SM8450 (Snapdragon 895) is still a Samsung foundry, using its 4nm process, including the Exynos 2200.
The 4nm LPE mentioned here is actually the name change of 5nm LPA (third-generation 5nm), because 5LPA and 4LPE have no performance difference.
What makes people a little puzzling is that Chen Jin, general manager of Lenovo China’s mobile phone business department, broke the news on Friday that the SM8450 is determined to use TSMC 4nm, but he has deleted the above Weibo, and adjusted the wording to say “this year’s black swan caused by the shortage of chip production capacity. There are too many events, and there are different possible versions of the things that have been established… But what is certain is that the 8450 flagships of Lenovo and Motorola are in place around winter.” Is it worth pondering?
It is understood that the SM8450 uses the Kryo 780 CPU based on the ARMv9 instruction set public version of the Cortex core, and integrates the Adreno 730 GPU, Spectra 680 ISP, and Snapdragon X65 5G baseband.
As for the Exynos 2200, it is said that it will integrate AMD RDNA2 GPU technology to support ray tracing, variable frame rate rendering and other technologies on mobile phones.
