The first leaked tests of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for the Samsung Galaxy S24 show an overwhelming difference in GPU It seems that Samsung will once again bet on Qualcomm for some territories and its Exynos for others
Samsung’s bet on Qualcomm went well with the Galaxy S23. Both the compact model and the Galaxy S23+ and the Galaxy S23 Ultra parked Exynos around the world to bet on an ‘overclocked’ version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
With the power of the SoC and, above all, with the good dissipation system that they have set up, they are one of the best phones to enjoy video games, even the most demanding ones like ‘Final Fantasy VII Ever Crysis’ or ‘Honkai: Star Rail’. Now it seems that That Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will remain in its infancy compared to the Galaxy S24at least compared to those who mount the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy begins to emerge
First of all, it must be clarified that there is still no official data on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. On October 24, Qualcomm will present its new SoC in Hawaii star for the most powerful mobile phones next year and from Xataka we will be there to tell all the details first-hand.
However, in recent weeks performance tests have begun to leak that show that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 can be a real beast and that, if accompanied by a good dissipation system, we could talk about a spectacular SoC for video games (as is the SD 8 Gen 2, on the other hand).
One of the latest tests comes from Revegnus, a reference user when we talk about semiconductors, who has shared in
What we see is that it has a score in the GPU test under the Vulkan API a score of 15,434 points. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 has about 9,000 points in this same test. The 6 GPU test is not the best, since there are some like 3DMark that are more advanced, but it gives us an idea of what the leap between generations can mean when it comes to GPUs.
There are a few weeks left to clear up doubts, but the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is expected to maintain a fairly unique architecture with a construction in 4 nanometers and composed of a Cortex-X4 main corefive Cortex-A720 and two Cortex-A520 accompanied by the Adreno 750 and, another year, acceleration of ray tracing by hardware.
Another song may be the Spanish model with the Exynos 2400
If you are already taking out your wallet and you live in Europe, stop the car because We will have to wait to see results and, above all, performance of the Exynos 2400. And, after the good news of the S23 betting on Qualcomm worldwide, everything indicates that the South Korean company will return to its old ways with the Galaxy S24.
In certain territories (such as the United States) it will mount the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 while in others (Europe) we will have the Exynos 2400. Traditionally, the Exynos have been slower, with a weaker GPU and worse in terms of efficiency and energy management.
It is expected that in a few hours Samsung will present this Exynos 2400 and we also expect a jump in power thanks to both its architecture with ten cores (which is said to be soon) and its new GPU created together with AMD.
In any way, Apple has shown muscle with their iPhone 15 Pro and the SoC A17 Pro and Qualcomm is going to want to turn the tables with its Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 (although we will not see it in all territories on the Galaxy S24).
