Qualcomm Snapdragon Elites

Before we get into the benchmarks, let us go over a few specifications of both the Snapdragon X Elite and the Core Ultra 7 155H. Stable Diffusion 1.5 takes advantage of the NPU belonging to both silicon, but the Snapdragon X Elite dominates its latest rival when it comes to image generation. In the first prompt, which was a ‘bundle of berries,’ Qualcomm’s SoC finished the test in 7.25 seconds, generating the image three times faster than the Intel Core Ultra 7 155H, which generated the same image in 22.26 seconds.

If that was not enough to speak volumes of the Snapdragon X Elite’s AI generation capabilities, it could also create 10x faster images when prompted to create a ‘majestic lion basking in the golden afternoon sun.’ In the video below, you can see that the Intel Core Ultra 7 155H generates an image every 12 seconds, whereas the Snapdragon X Elite completes the same task in a single second, cementing its authority on one of Intel’s processors.

Well, this is going to be interesting… Good luck, Intel Foundry. It’s all on your shoulders now.

Qualcomm did a nice job with the AI engine in the snapdragon. It has over 3X the TOPs of either AMD or INTC. The next generation chips from INTC and AMD will match, but will qualcomm move on?
