Snapdragon X Elite benchmarks should have Apple worried


During the Snapdragon Summit last year, Qualcomm unveiled its new Snapdragon X Elite chipset. This is a new chipset that is designed to compete against the Apple Silicon and bring more Arm-based computers to the market. Now thanks to benchmarks of the Snapdragon X Elite that have been spotted on Geekbench, it looks promising.

This was discovered by Windows Latest who found a benchmark for the Surface Laptop 6. It is widely speculated to be the Snapdragon X Elite, even though the chipset was not identified specifically. According to the scores, it managed to achieve 2,714 for single-core performance and 14,078 for multi-core performance.

For context, Apple’s M3 Pro scored 3,084 in single-core and 14,017 in multi-core. While the M3 Pro seemingly leads the way in single-core performance, the Snapdragon X Elite has it slightly beat in the multi-core department according to the benchmarks. That being said, it should be noted that these scores only tell one side of the story. There are other things to consider when purchasing a laptop.

Plus, Qualcomm seems to be mired in some controversy right now regarding its benchmarks. The company has yet to disclose its chip TDP. This means that it is possible that the company’s chipsets could be drawing more power than the Apple Silicon. This in turn could give it higher benchmark results. We’ll have to wait for the actual laptops to be released to get a better idea.
