In the mainstream desktop market, AMD and Intel have piled up cores to 16 and 24 cores, but in the mobile phone sector, they don't seem to be keen on piling up cores.

In response, Phoenix Science and Technology reported,Qualcomm says eight cores is an upper limit for smartphones.

This was in response to a question about the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 using a new CPU architecture such as 1+4+3, after all ARM gave a public reference design such as 1+4+4 when it released the Cortex-X3.


Specifically for the Snapdragon 8 Gen2, Qualcomm pointed out that the market demand for performance core is increasing, while the demand for efficiency core is decreasing, so the final retention of three A510R small core.

Regarding 32-bit compatibility, Qualcomm also explained that this is to support the existing 32-bit applications on the market. In addition, only 32-bit running on the efficiency core will cause performance loss, so two A710s are reserved to ensure smooth use and maximize the operating efficiency to avoid software translation loss.
