Have you ever felt that your current flagship smartphone is overheating and eating through its battery faster than ever before? If the answer is yes then you’re not the alone and you might want to brace yourselves for what’s to come.
According to reports by South Korean news publisher Meeco.kr the Cortex X3 is set to be even more power-hungry; precisely 10% higher compared to the Cortex X2 when clocked at 3.0 GHz or higher. This in turn will directly affect the overall core temperature and battery life of next-gen smartphones.
Meanwhile, this doesn’t mean that the performance gains will be much greater either, as according to the rumours, the Cortex X3 will offer a slim performance boost over the Cortex X2, with main improvements in the AI department which is said to see around 2x boost compared to the Cortex X2.
The report further explains that this might be the case due to new engineering difficulties faced by both Samsung foundries and TSMC to efficiently produce its next-gen chips which will reportedly be based on a 3nm process node.
However, we recommend taking this information with a pinch of salt as technically speaking reducing the node size normally results in better power efficiency while delivering powerful performance and lower core temps. Something which is quite evident thanks to Apple’s M1 series of SoCs that allow MacBooks and iPads to boast blazing fast performance along with industry-leading battery life.
Nevertheless, we can’t confirm or deny the reports at this stage and we’ll have to wait and watch to see if these reports are accurate enough.
