Samsung’s New Galaxy Book4 Edge Laptop with Snapdragon X Elite Chipset:

Samsung’s latest addition to the Galaxy Book4 series, the “Edge” model (NP940XMAA-EXP), has made an appearance on Geekbench with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X Elite chipset. The upcoming laptop from Samsung scored 2,785 in the single-core test and an impressive 13,925 in the multi-core test.

Geekbench Scores: Single-Core and Multi-Core

The Samsung Galaxy Book4 Edge’s scores on Geekbench 6 outperform previous benchmarks for Snapdragon-powered laptops. The listing reveals that the laptop runs with a base frequency of 4.01GHz and comes equipped with 12 Oryon CPU cores (8+4).

Comparing Performance to Apple’s M-Series Processors

Although the Galaxy Book4 Edge falls short of defeating Apple’s latest M3 Pro with its 12 CPU cores, it performs better than the M2 and M1 processors. However, Qualcomm’s PC chipset hasn’t yet crossed the 3,000 mark on the single-core Geekbench test while running Windows.

Nuvia-designed Snapdragon X Elite: Awaiting Windows Performance

Last November, Qualcomm announced the Nuvia-designed Snapdragon X Elite, which scored 3238 in the single-core test and 17181 in the multi-core test while running Linux. However, it’s important to note that Windows performance remains uncertain for this chipset.

Multiple SKUs: Snapdragon X Elite and Snapdragon X Plus

Geekbench’s benchmark for a Snapdragon-powered laptop has revealed that the Snapdragon X Elite comes with as many as eight SKUs. In addition to the X Elite, there’s also a “Snapdragon X Plus” variant that may feature fewer cores, reduced frequency, and lower power consumption.

Upcoming Launches: June 2023

Snapdragon X Elite-powered laptops are rumored to launch by June this year. Microsoft is reportedly hosting an event on March 21st where it might unveil new Surface laptops, potentially featuring the Snapdragon X Elite SoC.
