Qualcomm and Razer develop a Developer kit for next-gen mobile gaming

The device, which is a Developer Kit, is powered by Snapdragon G3x silicon.

We received a few slides featuring Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon SoCs for 2022 products, including the G3x which was designed specifically for a handheld gaming console. This Developer Kit was designed in collaboration with Razer. The device offers a 120Hz HDR OLED display and has a large 6000 mAh battery. Judging by other slides that we received, the device will be advertised as a game streaming device, which will support Xbox Game Cloud, streaming from the local console or even a PC.

The flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen1 CPU will be 20% faster and 30% more power-efficient compared to the current flagship Qualcomm SoC. The 8 Gen1 will be manufactured using 4nm process technology and it will have a 4th Gen Adreno GPU. Qualcomm estimates 30% higher GPU performance and 25% power savings from its new architecture. Interestingly, in Vulkan, the GPU should perform 60% faster. This is all in comparison to the ‘previous generation’, the slides that we have do not disclose which part specifically.
