The Samsung Galaxy S23 series has been made available yesterday. The whole Galaxy S23 series is running Qualcomm’s second generation Snapdragon 8 mobile platform. There is no Exynos variant this year. This contrasts with the previous generation.
Additionally, the Galaxy S23 has a specially designed, limited edition Snapdragon 8 series processor from Qualcomm. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy is the name of this chip. Its CPU’s core frequency is 3.36GHz, higher than the ordinary version’s 3.2GHz. While its GPU’s core frequency is 719MHz, higher still than the standard version’s 680MHz.
The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra performs significantly better than the S22 Ultra
Gizchina News of the week
All of the Galaxy S23 variants, including the top-tier Galaxy S23 Ultra, were featured on the YouTube channel Coisa de Nerd. Samsung’s most recent device was subject to a test against the Exynos 2200 powered Galaxy S22 Ultra from a year ago. Which drew a lot of criticism for its performance and thermal throttling difficulties. The 3DMark Wild Life Extreme test impressively demonstrates how switching chips may boost performance.
The 3DMark Wild Life Extreme test puts a lot of strain on the graphics processor, and given that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 was previously proven to be 45 percent quicker than the Exynos 2200 in Geekbench 5, one would have assumed that the results would be comparable. They were wrong, as the Galaxy S23 Ultra scored 3,873, more than twice as much as the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Which received only 1,912 points.
A higher score was possible due to the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s cooler vapor chamber. And the efficiency of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. This suggests that Samsung‘s newest flagship will run more reliably.
The difference in performance between the two generations of smartphones is significant. And while benchmarks are not always indicative of real world performance. It is safe to assume that the new Samsung Galaxy S23 series will always have more power than we need.
