You have probably read and heard it a lot before the launch of the Galaxy S23, and in case you did not know, we added another layer: the main novelty of the Samsung Galaxy S23, S23 Plus and S23 Ultra is not visible, since it is its Snapdragon Chip 8 Gen 2. To recap briefly, European versions of Samsung’s phones have so far had to make do with less capable Exynos chips, and have even been marred by serious issues at launch, as we might have regretted in the S22. past year. .

Finally, the word is strong, but used willingly here, Samsung has finally decided to switch to an unrestricted setting for Europe. Better yet, the Suwon firm confirmed during its Galaxy Unpacked conference that the S23’s chip had been slightly customized. It is therefore a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 “for Galaxy”. What is it worth in practice? We put it to the test.

After less than 24 hours in your possession, let’s be clear: it’s just night and day. The above benchmarks testify to this. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 crushes the Exynos 2200 in all benchmarks. The graphics part in particular seems much more successful, as evidenced by the score in GFX Bench, for example, almost three times higher.

Comparison to another Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
A few weeks ago, we got our hands on one of the first Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 phones, the Iqoo 11. This is a very gaming-oriented sub-brand of Vivo.
|Antute 9||Rate CPU||GPU Score||Wild Life Extreme 3D Mark|
|Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra||1205251||261530||529047||3781 / 22.60FPS|
|Iqoo 11 (Snapdragon 8 Gen 2)||1275995||261069||580811||3777 / 22.60FPS|
With this desire to turn to performance, there is not too much surprise in the result, the Iqoo is in front. More interestingly, he only dominates the Galaxy by a very short head. What to think that finally, the purchase of an ultra-high-end smartphone from Samsung will no longer be synonymous with concessions in terms of performance. Very good news.
