Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite

Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite

The Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite is a mobile processor for notebooks which was introduced at the end of 2023. For the first time, it integrates the Oryon CPU cores from Nuvia. The CPU part uses 12 cores clock at up to 4.3 GHz (maximum of two cores, other up to 3.8 GHz) that are using the ARM v8.7 instruction set. The CPU performance depends heavily on the TDP used. This can be set from 12 Watts (without fan) to 80 Watts (45 Watts typical according to Qualcomm).

The performance of the CPU cores seems to be excellent with adapted software. The single-core performance in Cinebench 2024 can keep up with or even overtake the fastest cores from Apple and Intel. Under Windows, however, the CPU is always at a disadvantage with non-customised software, as this has to be emulated. Games are particularly affected here, as they often do not run properly.

In addition to the CPU part, the X Elite integrates a powerful Hexagon NPU for AI acceleration.

The integrated Adreno graphics card is somewhat older and does not yet support ray tracing (in the smartphone already supported in the older Snapdragon 8 Gen 2).

Despite the lack of efficiency cores, the Snapdragon X Elite is said to be very efficient, according to Qualcomm. The chip is produced in the current 4nm process at TSMC.
