Samsung launched the Galaxy S23 Ultra smartphone, which sets a new standard for premium smartphones by combining the unmatched power of the Note series and S series. What makes the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra even more attractive is its Galaxy-specific Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, setting new records in various benchmarks.
It’s no secret that Samsung has partnered with Qualcomm and created Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform for Galaxy. This chipset is slightly different from the regular Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor and delivers better performance with overclocked CPU and GPU.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy features the same CPU configuration, such as 1x Cortex-X3, 2x Cortex-A715, 2x Cortex-A710, and 3x Cortex-A510 cores, but the main Cortex-X3 core is clocked at 3.36 GHz instead of 3.2GHz.
The same is the case with the GPU. The Galaxy’s Adreno 740 is running at 719 MHz while the regular one is running at 680 MHz.
GSMArena has recently examined both versions of the chipset – the one used in Galaxy S23 Ultra and the regular one which other brand phones use. You can check out the test results of various benchmarks for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset installed on the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and other Android flagship smartphones.
The Geekbench 5 CPU test results may come as a surprise to some as the Galaxy S23 Ultra beats the Nubia Red Magic 8 Pro in the single-core test while defeated from it in the multi-core test.
That’s because the Cortex-X3 inside the S23 Ultra is clocked higher. Secondly, the larger Cortex-X3 cores are not used in the multi-core test. And this is why the Red Magic 8 Pro may have a slight advantage over the Galaxy due to its powerful cooling system which allows the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 to run on a higher gear.
In the AnTuTu test, the Galaxy S23 Ultra falls behind the Red Magic 8 Pro. But we should not forget that the latter is a gaming phone with a 1080p+ screen requiring less graphics power. On the other side, the new Snapdragon is considerably faster than the older Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip and even then iPhone 14 Pro Max’s A16 Bionic.
Lastly, when it comes to GPU-intensive tasks, the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is a clear winner. In almost all offscreen tests, the Samsung flagship pulled ahead of the rest and only fell behind in onscreen tests when challenged by phones with lower resolutions.
Overall, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy delivers significantly upgraded performance compared to the regular version of the same chipset.
Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra vs Galaxy S23 Ultra: Spotting design differences!
Yesterday, we saw the Samsung Galaxy S24 series renders that revealed the phones’ design. While the Galaxy S24 and S24+ feature flat frame design, the S24 Ultra apparently brings the narrowest bezel in history.

As you can see in the comparison renders, the Galaxy S24 Ultra has an almost flat design as compared to its predecessor. The company has already reduced the curvature with the S23 Ultra this year, and it’s going to be flat, starting with the S24 Ultra next year.
