1 GHz for GPU in Snapdragon SoC.

The regular Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 appears to have a GPU clock of 770 MHz

Samsung Galaxy S24 smartphones, as you know, will also receive SoC Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 . But, as in the current generation, it will be a special version of Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy.

Insider Ice Universe reports that the Adreno 750 graphics core in this platform will operate at a frequency of 1 GHz! Qualcomm itself does not indicate the GPU frequency in the regular Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, but third-party sources talk about 770 MHz. That is, the increase will be very impressive.  

1 GHz for GPU in Snapdragon SoC.

True, as we know from the example of the same Galaxy S23, and from many other smartphones, the declared frequencies are not at all a guarantee of a certain performance, since everything depends on the temperature regime. The same Galaxy S23, with the overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy, lost in tests to many smartphones with the regular Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 simply because the latter had better cooling. 

Separately, we can recall that the first consumer GPU with a frequency of 1 GHz was the Cape Verde XT based on the Radeon HD 7770 video card, which was released in 2012. It was a GPU with 1.5 billion transistors, which was produced using a 28 nm process technology. At the same time, AMD promised to conquer 1 GHz back in 2009 before the release of the Radeon HD 4890, but the card was released with a core frequency of 850 MHz, and it took another three years for it to finally reach 1 GHz. 

Ice Universe was the first to accurately talk about the new trend for smartphones with waterfall screens, about the bangs in the iPhone X, about the new design of the iPhone 14 and about Samsung’s 200-megapixel image sensor.
