Samsung Galaxy S23 – A Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for European variants appears to be confirmed by a Geekbench listing. On the other hand, it seems that Samsung will introduce the newly launched Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset in the European markets this year. On top of that, there is a special high-frequency version that is exclusively available here, as revealed by well-known source Ice Universe. Follow for more updates newsyorbits.com
According to information made public by Ice Universe, the soon-to-be-launched Galaxy S23 Ultra (with model number SM-S918B) reportedly scores a single-core score of 1504 and a multi-core score of 4580 in an alleged run of Geekbench 5 benchmark. Naturally, this occurs while using Android 13. The model that was tested had 8 GB of RAM installed.
The main distinction between this chip and other Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processors is the higher clock speed of the Cortex-X3-based Kryo Prime core, which now runs at 3.36 GHz instead of the more typical 3.2 GHz. In the eight-core processor, the remaining seven cores work at frequencies typical for them.
The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra
Since Ice Universe shared this tweet, it looks like Samsung has given Geekbench another go with the S23 Ultra. This time, it was able to make a slight improvement in its single-core performance by scoring 1530 points, and it managed to make a significant jump in its multi-core performance by scoring 4779 points.
It’s not obvious what difference, if any, these higher clocked chips will make in actual use compared to the typical chip that’s part of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 family. Samsung may be taking this step in a effort to make amends for the recent performance throttling (GOS) scandal, for which the company was forced to issue a public apology after being caught.
If so, this could be one way the company is trying to repair the damage caused to its reputation by the scandal. You can read more about our coverage of the Samsung GOS scandal here if you missed it. Follow us. Follow for more updates newsyorbits.com
