Qualcomm recently informed us that it will rebrand its popular Snapdragon line of mobile chipsets
by employing "a single-digit series and generation number," which led to the speculation that the leaked Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 naming scheme may hold water in the end.
Well, this bad Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 boy has allegedly been benchmarked on AnTuTu, and the score leaked for the world to see courtesy of the 8 o'clock tech tipster account
. As you can see below, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 benchmark score
may be the next one to cross the one million mark over on AnTuTu, placing it right up there with the newly announced Dimensity 9000
chipset that also tops the million points threshold.

For now, direct comparison is out of the question, since the AnTuTu benchmark kit is not cross-platform, and the scores mean different things on Android or iOS. The upcoming Snapdragon 8 is shaping up to be a very capable chipset, though, topping the Android charts from the get-go, even in its Gen 1 reincarnation.
