The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is here to run AI on your next phone, whatever that means

Qualcomm has announced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset at its Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit 2023 in Maui. The company paid for my trip to the island to check out the next platform that will power phones that could include the Galaxy S24, the OnePlus 12, and many more of the best phones we expect to see in 2024. The fulcrum of the next gen platform will be AI features, though it remains unclear exactly what those will be, and that’s precisely the point. 

Today’s processing platforms, on most mobile devices and laptops, are made up of the CPU for application processing and the GPU for graphics and specialized applications. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, like the Google Tensor chipsets, has its own Neural Processing Unit, or NPU, that is designed to run machine learning (ML) applications and functions. Unlike Google’s Tensor chipset, however, Qualcomm is not locking its NPU to one company’s ML features.
