Benchmark apps are in Geekbench 5’s database for the past few days Multiple entries popped up from devices, which are believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Ultra. The benchmark results listed there clearly come from models that use the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2.
New, previously unusual cluster configuration
On the one hand, the benchmark results confirm the core configuration of Qualcomm’s new high-end SoC. Accordingly, it has a high-end core that is said to clock up to 3.36GHz and thus clocks significantly higher than the current predecessor chip. There’s also talk of four premium cores clocking up to 2.8GHz, while there are also three frugal low-end cores with a maximum of 2.02GHz on board.
On the one hand, this is a very unusual configuration, as Qualcomm has recently relied on four low-end, three premium and one high-end cores. So you change the number of cores to premium and low-end cores to get more performance under high load, eventually there are no longer just four, but five powerful computing cores.
The reason for the unusual cluster configuration is apparently that Qualcomm uses two ARM Cortex-A710 and Cortex-A715 cores, with the first two cores mainly on board as they require support for 32-bit apps. continue to offer. So basically, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is really a quad-cluster design: three low-end, two more premium cores, and one high-end core.
S23 also with Snapdragon SoC in Europe?
It remains to be seen whether this will eventually come true, as Qualcomm will not introduce its latest high-end SoC until mid-November. Regardless of the actual cluster configuration, the new Snapdragon chip delivers a significant performance boost. While the predecessor chip Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in the Galaxy S22 recently scored around 1150 points in single and a decent 3300 points in multi-core benchmarks with Geekbench, the database lists significantly higher prices for the new chip. , The Snapdragon 8 Gen2 in the Galaxy S23 Ultra clearly scored over 1500 points in single and around 4700 points in multi-core benchmarks.
This would mean an increase of 25 per cent in single and over 40 per cent in multi-core benchmarks. It remains to be seen whether we will benefit from this massive increase in performance in Europe. However, there are several rumors that Samsung is looking to use the new Qualcomm SoC for the Galaxy S23 in Europe and is no longer tied to the use of the in-house Exynos processor. 22 1:20 pm
