Snapdragon 8 Gen 3: A Chipset Truly Made For Gaming

REDMAGIC 9 Pro Snapdragon 8 Gen 3

With the official countdown underway, this is the perfect time to have a detailed look at the features the new REDMAGIC 9 Pro is set to deliver. Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 a month ago at its annual tech summit, shining the spotlight on the new chip’s AI-powered processing, and the latest gaming technology inside their latest offering. 


Based on the test results from the Qualcomm Reference Device (QRD), the new generation chipset is better than the previous generation, and it’s also surprisingly faster than the A17 Pro chip found in the Apple iPhone 15 Pro. The REDMAGIC 9 Pro is the first gaming smartphone to harness the incredible power of the chipset purely for its gaming potential, but what does that mean for the gamer?


Photo Realistic Gaming Visuals


Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is the first chipset to deliver Ray Tracing with Global Illumination to smartphones, a feature that enhances shadows, textures, reflections, and the overall appearance of images displayed by the device. The chipset also sees the first integration of the Unreal Engine 5 Lumen lighting system for smartphones, which breathes new life into the mobile gaming dimension.


Paired with the BOE Q9 + FHD screen and 1500 nits peak brightness on the REDMAGIC 9 Pro, as well as the Snapdragon Game Super Resolution, a new level of realistic desktop-level visuals is sure to be unlocked.


A New Level of Processing


The new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 has been benchmarked against its predecessor as well as a variety of other flagship processors of 2023, and the results are exciting. As mentioned in the intro, the new chipset was found to be faster than the iPhone 15 Pro’s A17 Pro chip, boasting a 3% improvement in multi-core processing on Geekbench 5. Compared to its predecessor the  Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, the new chipset tested on the QRD showed a 15% increase in single-core processing and a 31% increase in multi-core processing. This is all achieved while maintaining low power consumption, allowing the 6500 mAh battery to stretch even further.


This translates to a smoother, lag-free gaming experience where the FPS remains consistent throughout gameplay, which is especially useful in demanding games like CODM and Genshin Impact.


A More Fluid REDMAGIC Studio Experience


REDMAGIC has sought to deliver a truly immersive big-screen mobile gaming experience with REDMAGIC Studio, making it possible to stream mobile games directly from your mobile device to your PC monitor without a video capture card. The Snapdragon Gen 8 chip has the latest Snapdragon Game Super Resolution that can turn mobile games into a seamless 8K visual experience when plugged into a high-resolution display. 


This will elevate the overall experience of casting games through REDMAGIC Studio on the REDMAGIC 9 Pro, delivering a new level of fluidity and sharp details. 


An Improved Way to Capture Images


Using the power of generative AI, the REDMAGIC 9 Pro will deliver more pristine picture quality, with the ability to expand photos or color correct shots in real-time. Adding to the impressive repertoire of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 are its cutting-edge image processing capabilities, powered by Generative-AI. This chipset introduces a groundbreaking generative fill for image expansion, which allows users to seamlessly zoom out and re-crop photos directly on their device, adding a new dimension to the way visuals are created and customized.


The newly improved dual camera lenses on the REDMAGIC 9 Pro are enhanced by the generative-AI abilities of the new flagship chipset. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 promises not just an exceptional gaming experience but also sets a new standard for image and video processing directly on your device.


A Collaboration for the Books


As we eagerly anticipate the arrival of the REDMAGIC 9 Pro, powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, it’s evident that this collaboration promises not just a smartphone but a gateway to a new era of mobile gaming excellence. With revolutionary features like Ray Tracing, Global Illumination, and Unreal Engine 5 Lumen lighting system, gamers can expect a visually stunning experience that rivals desktop-level realism. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 emerges as a game-changer in the world of mobile gaming, taking the REDMAGIC 9 Pro to unprecedented levels of gaming.


Not only does the chipset outperform its predecessor and the competition, but it also ensures a seamless, lag-free gaming experience with consistent FPS, especially crucial for demanding titles like CODM and Genshin Impact. The boost in processing power, highlighted by a 15% increase in single-core and a 31% increase in multi-core processing, sets a new standard for mobile gaming performance.


Get ready to elevate your gaming adventures with a device that truly understands the language of gamers, the REDMAGIC 9 Pro with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.
