Qualcomm's New Chips Excel at AI Processing, Boasts 4.5x Faster Performance

AI-centric Optimizations

  • Qualcomm has geared these processors to ace GenAI models, outperforming the competition by 4.5 times on INT4 AI benchmark tests.
  • The chips can handle GenAI models with 13 billion parameters (X Elite) and 10 billion parameters (8 Gen 3), ensuring robust on-device processing capabilities.


On-device Security

  • Qualcomm's on-device AI processing protects users' queries and results, enhancing security and privacy.
  • On-device processing limits potential risks tied to biometric and personal data upload to cloud-based AI.


Implications and Prospective Applications

  • The ability to run AI directly on devices could transform a range of tasks, including meeting/document summarization, email drafting, code/music generation, and photo editing.
  • By integrating AI features directly on the device, users can enjoy better personalization, faster processing, and improved device interaction.
  • Qualcomm is planning iterations of these chips with greater parameters to support more sophisticated AI models, such as those for ADAS systems.
