While benchmarks have been surfacing for all the next gen chipsets we haven’t seen anything concrete for the Exynos 2200, and according to an internal source its not what we’d hoped for.
2022 Mobile SoC’s
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 has not had any official benchmarks released yet, but its appeared on Geekbench 5 browser showing reasonable scores and it was also the first to cross the 1 million mark on Antutu benchmark.
The Dimensity 9000 is also coming with the same configuration as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 but with slightly higher clock speeds. Its looking like a big leap for the company and also reaches over 1 million points on antutu.
It comes with a few advantages over the Snapdragon 888 like newer Ram & Bluetooth standards along with AV1 decoding support. It boasts 180Hz display capabilities at FHD+ but there is no mention of QHD resolutions.
The Dimensity 9000 uses the Mali-G710 MC10 GPU and Mediatek claim an impressive 35% performance improvement over the snapdragon 888 along with a 60% boost in efficiency. Whereas Qualcomm state only a 30% performance boost on the Snapdragon 888 along with a 25% boost in efficiency.
We’ll have to wait for real world devices and see if these power claims can actually be sustained or if they are simply just peak numbers from Mediatek but we personally feel that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 will perform best.
With all this news about the other chipsets many are still in hopes for the Exynos 2200 given its the first chip from the Samsung & AMD partnership.
Exynos has always lagged behind Snapdragon in terms of performance. When we get phones like the Galaxy S21 that use either chipset depending on region it really allows us to see this. While bench-marking results remain similar the Exynos suffers from more throttling and cannot sustain performance as long as the Snapdragon.
While in real world use you probably wouldn’t see this too much when it comes to mobile gaming the Exynos will start throttling performance ahead of its Snapdragon Counterpart.
Many had hoped that bringing in GPU experts AMD was going to solve this issue but according to an internal source that has reached out to us, its not the case.
According to the source the Exynos 2200 is showing some big improvements over its predecessor and boasts a performance uplift of 40-45% over the Exynos 2100. It is however still experiencing thermal issues and the early throttling we have come to expect from an Exynos chipset.
While the source wishes to be unnamed we hope that we can provide some evidence soon, and while this may not be what people wanted to hear its not as bad as it sounds.
The Exynos 2200 is still going to be an impressive chip & will score close to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in synthetic tests. It just won’t be overtaking Qualcomm in performance this time around.
We saw a big jump in performance from the Exynos 990 to the Exynos 2100, And its looking like big gains again to the Exynos 2200. They are now at a stage where they can compete a lot more effectively so things could change in the very near future.
A Benchmark already appeared in Geekbench 5 for the Galaxy S22 Ultra running the exynos chipset but it scored very poorly but there are many questions over its legitimacy. The device in the benchmark has 8GB of Ram where the starting model of the S22 should be 12GB & a single core score of 691 is not the performance we expect.
Of course we’ll cover this in a lot more detail when we have released phones for all 3 and can thoroughly test the differences. They all come with their own advantages and performance will not be far off between the 3.
Let me know your thoughts in the comments though. What chip set would you prefer to have out of the 3?
