You may recall (and then again not) that Samsung Ice Universe noted that low Geekbench scores for its Galaxy S23 line indicated this. Something was wrong with the overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip
It powers the Galaxy S23 models. Geekbench is a benchmark used to measure and compare the CPU of the central processor in the chipsets that power smartphones (it works with processors in other types of devices, but we’re focusing on phones for this story).
As we mentioned about a week and a half ago, the Galaxy S23 single-core Geekbench score was in line with the single-core scores generated by other phones using the same SoC. But the multi-core scores didn’t match at all, which is odd given that the X-3 high-performance core in the overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 should deliver higher Geekbench scores than other models running the regular version of the chip.
Earlier Geekbench tests hinted at Samsung squeezing a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor for the S23 line.
And since none of the multi-core Geekbench tests for the Galaxy S23 line scored 5,000 (something other phones running the latest Snapdragon software processor (AP) do), it’s raised concerns samsung
The processor in the Galaxy S23 series needs to be adjusted, which is something to do if the chipset is overheating.
This Geekbench test of the European Galaxy S23 Ultra shows that the phone does not overheat
Let’s dive a little deeper into the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset used by the Galaxy S23 line. There are two options; The phone, which will be used by the likes of the Motorola X40 and OnePlus 11, is manufactured by TSMC using a 4nm process node and a high-performance X-3 core clocked at 3.2 GHz. The version to be used for the Galaxy S23 line will be manufactured by Samsung Foundry using a 4nm process node and an overclocked X-3 high-performance core clocked at 3.32GHz.
But according to Android Headlines
, a recent Geekbench test for the Galaxy S23 Ultra scored a multi-core 5179 and finally crossed 5000. This suggests that any thermal issues that might have forced Samsung to slow down the processor can be ironed out.
a Twitter tipster named Ahmed Gwaider
(@AhmedQwaider888) reports that the Galaxy S23 will have an improved cooling system that is 1.6 times better than the cooling system in the Galaxy S22. The upgrade for the Galaxy S23+ will be 2.8 times better than the cooling system in the Galaxy S22+, and the Galaxy S23 Ultra will have 2.3 times better cooling than the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
The new chipset and cooling systems should keep the Galaxy S23 line from overheating
The result is that during heavy use, the improved cooling systems will be able to keep the Galaxy S23 series from overheating without throttling the processor. After all, what’s the point of overclocking Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipsets under the hoods of your flagship phones if those SoCs need to be underpowered anyway?
The tipster notes that the Galaxy S23 models will have better battery life and generate less heat thanks to the improved cooling system and new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. It also says that compared to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip used in the Galaxy S22 series, CPU performance will increase by 36%, graphics (GPU) performance by 48%, and Neural Processing Unit (NPU) performance by 60%. improved use of artificial intelligence (AI) features.
The The Samsung Galaxy S23 series is rumored to come pre-installed with One UI 5.1 interface
Android 13 Quarterly Platform Release 1, which was released earlier last month, includes the newer Android 13 features released by Google. The One UI interface is designed to make it easier for users to reach screen elements that are usually out of reach for users sporting a large-screen phone. This is done by keeping most of the elements near the bottom of the screen.
