Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite can’t touch Apple’s M3 — new benchmarks reveal Apple silicon wins nearly every major category

Now that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X Elite chips are out in the wild, housed in a swathe of newly-released Windows laptops, we’re finally starting to see the very first real-world benchmark performance tests. The results? Looks like Apple has nothing to worry about.

A notable set of figures shared this week into the performance of the new X1E-78-100 and X1E-80-100, housed respectively in ASUS’ new Vivobook S 15 OLED and the Microsoft Surface Pro 11, can’t hold a candle to Apple’s M3 chips when it comes to single-core scores, power efficiency, multi-core power efficiency, GPU performance, GPU efficiency, and power consumption.
