Apple recently launched its iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro handsets. As an answer, the Galaxy S24 series is coming early next year. Meanwhile, there’s a question arises! Will the Samsung Galaxy S24 smartphone equipped with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy beat Apple’s A17 Pro chipset?
Let’s compare benchmark results.
Apple A17 Pro (iPhone 15 Pro/Pro Max)
According to Geekbench 6, Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro featuring the A17 Pro chipset managed 2,908 single-core points and a 7,238 multi-core score. Over the last year’s processor, the new product translates to a 16% single-core score improvement and a 13% multi-core gain.
In addition, Geekbench revealed a 3.78GHz base frequency for the CPU performance cores inside the A17 Pro. Well, it will be interesting to see how Apple’s new 3nm-based A17 Pro chip fares in terms of efficiency given the new 3nm process.
Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy (S24 Ultra)
While the official launch of the Galaxy S24 series is yet to happen, early (possible) benchmark results surfaced in the recent past. Similar to the Galaxy S23, the next year’s flagship models will use an overclocked Snapdragon chipset, an edge over the upcoming Android rivals.
In the Geekbench 6 test, the unreleased S24 Plus, powered by 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy, scored 2233 and 6661 points in single-core and multi-core tests, respectively. For Galaxy chip’s three-core cluster is clocked at 3.15GHz instead of 2.96GHz, and the single high-performance core runs at 3.30GHz, up from 3.19GHz.

Geekbench results make the Apple A17 Pro a clear winner with higher scores in both multi-core and single-core tests. Since Qualcomm is yet to unveil the next-gen Snapdragon chipset, the performance might significantly improve prior to the commercialization.
What do you think, will Samsung Galaxy S24’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy beat Apple’s A17 Pro chipset?
