Galaxy S23 Ultra or Galaxy S22 Ultra, which one is better in terms of SoC and performance?


The launch of the most desirable Galaxy S23 is pretty close now. The desire to know more about the series is getting stronger as the days go by. Until now, we have found the information regarding its specs, hardware, and else, but today, we are landing our eyes on its processor, especially to know how better it will perform in terms of the SoC, as compared to the previous Galaxy S22 series. Let’s find out which is more impressive. 

Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 or Gen 2, which is better?

Informatively, the Galaxy S23 series features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, while the Galaxy 22 series has the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. Because the S23 chipset is one generation up from the S22’s, it will undoubtedly be better than the previous. Despite belonging to the Same Snapdragon 8 family and having a similar CPU and GPU- Kryo and Adreno, still, the Gen 2 processor is better in performance than the Gen 1.

Let us inform you Qualcomm itself has stated on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2’s launch that it is 35% faster than the SD 8 Gen 2 chipset in terms of performance and 40% better in power efficiency, even after bearing the loss of one efficiency core. However, both of these SoCs have a CPU architecture of 64 bits and are octa-core processors, but still, they show a major change in their core configuration. 

Galaxy S23’s SoC has an additional performance core

Notably, where S22’s chipset (Gen 1) has 1+3+4 cores in configuration, while the S23’s has 1+4+3 with an additional performance core, which will surely improve the Galaxy S23 series device’s performance. Additionally, the S22’s chipset’s primary core, Cortex-X2, is said to have a peak clock speed of 3.0GHz, but the S23’s Cortex-X3 performs better than the previous and gets a 3.2GHz peak clock speed.

Besides, it was reported that the S23 series could feature the overclocked version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, which is expected to have better clock speed than both the SD 8 Gen 1 and SD 8 Gen 2 base version. It is said that S23’s overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2’s primary core may get a peak clock speed of nearly 3.4GHz, which may be true because its Geekbench scores also show its primary core has a 3.36GHz clock speed. 

Geekbench scores of both the chipsets

Apart from these, let’s take a quick look at both devices’ SoC’s Geekbench scores as well. Informatively, the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s SD 8 Gen 1 scored 1203 in single-core and 3293 in multicore testing, while the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s SD 8 Gen 2 respectively got 1566 and 5179 scores in its initial single-core and multicore testing.
