Samsung is anticipated to embrace a comparable technique for its Galaxy S24 series as it made with the Galaxy S23, where it utilized a somewhat overclocked variation of Qualcomm's flagship chipset. For 2024, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy is stated to not just use a higher-clocked GPU, however its Cortex-X4 core is performing at an increased frequency too. These overclocks do not appear to do much when increasing single-core and multi-core efficiency.
Regardless of the Cortex-X4's increased frequency, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy carries out slower than the routine version
The Galaxy S24 Ultra was apparently benchmarked on Geekbench 6 with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 that sports a greater clock speed than what Qualcomm defined in its main statement of the SoC. Where the routine variation's Cortex-X4 runs at 3.30 GHz, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy is running the very same core at 3.40 GHz. Regretfully, that has to do with all the distinction we will see in between the 2 versions, as the staying Cortex-A720 and Cortex-A520 cores are performing at the precise very same clock speeds.
Even the Adreno 750 GPU, which is performing at a 900MHz default frequency on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3's routine variation, gets a small 1,000 MHz increase for all Galaxy S24 designs. Now, the genuine concern is how these overclock equate into real-world efficiency gains. The response is a frustrating one due to the fact that, as far as we can inform, the Galaxy S24 Ultra equipped with the 'updated' Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in fact carries out even worse than the routine variation powering the Xiaomi 14's innards.
