Qualcomm has published an article on the energy saving features of its Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 processors, citing a research study carried out by Px3 CEO Dr. Sutton-Parker. The study examined the power consumption of three Lenovo ThinkPad X13 notebooks running Windows 11. Each machine was identical except for the processor inside: one was a AMD Ryzen 5; another was an Intel Core i5; and the third was the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3. The research ran an identical set of workloads on each device, including typical productivity tasks, content streaming, and video conferencing using the ground breaking Device Use Phase Analysis (DUPA) technique developed by Dr. Sutton-Parker.
In the article, which is titled “For PCs, one little part can make a green difference”, Jeff Monday, VP, Sales, Qualcomm Technologies comments “Simply put: Snapdragon powered laptops reduce emissions because they consume less electricity”.
