Ice Universe calculated the performance gap between a Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra powered by an Exynos 2200 and a Vivo, likely the Vivo X90 Pro+, the first smartphone with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip. According to GeekBench 5, the performance gain speed is around 25% in single-core, and 45% in multi-core. A phenomenal progression that allows the chip to compete with Apple’s latest processors.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 apparently doesn’t just offer top-notch performance. It is also less energy consuming. According to Ice Universe, Qualcomm’s chip GPU is 60% more powerful and it is 88% more efficient. Whether this result will really affect the actual battery life of the S23 remains to be seen. These measurements are not taken under real conditions of use, they should be put into perspective.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is faster, more powerful, and less greedy
Qualcomm has confirmed that all models of the Samsung Galaxy S23 will be equipped with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, much to the delight of future European buyers of Samsung’s most prestigious smartphone. The performance of the Exynos fitted to the Galaxy S has always been a little behind compared to their American equivalents. Samsung has encountered overheating issues with the Exynos 2200, its in-house processor and has abandoned the idea of an Exynos 2300.

Samsung is hopeful of selling a lot of high-end smartphones during the holiday season. The latter will then yield the spotlight to the highly anticipated Galaxy S23, the true flagship of the Korean giant. If we are to believe the rumor, it could bring forward the marketing of the Galaxy S23. This last could be formalized at the beginning of February. In addition to a custom Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, it will have Wi-Fi 7 connectivity, UFS 4.0 chips and LPDDR5X RAM.
