Many people question Samsung‘s decision to use the Exynos 2400 chipset in the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+. This is because of how awful previous-gen Exynos processors have been. However, if a recent benchmark test is anything to go by, the company has turned the tide this year. The new Exynos chip appears to have better performance stability than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 that powers the phones in some markets.
Benchmark test shows Exynos 2400 is more stable than Snapdragon 8 Gen 3
After exclusively using a Snapdragon chip in the Galaxy S23 series last year, Samsung is back to its usual dual-chip strategy. The newly launched Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ ship with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 (the For Galaxy version with an overclocked CPU) in some markets such as the US and the Exynos 2400 in others, including Europe. The Galaxy S24 Ultra gets the overclocked Snapdragon chip globally.
Thai media outlet Beartai recently ran a 3DMark benchmark test on the Exynos-powered Galaxy S24+ and Snapdragon-powered Galaxy S24 Ultra to compare the performances. More specifically, the devices were subjected to 3DMark’s Solar Bay Stress Test. It is a 20-minute test that evaluates a device’s performance under long periods of heavy gaming workload with ray tracing and advanced graphic experiences.
The test showed that the Exynos 2400 sustained its performance better than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. It achieved the highest loop score of 8,905 and the lowest loop score of 5,755. A simple calculation reveals that its performance stability was 64.6%. On the other hand, the Snapdragon chip achieved the highest and lowest loop scores of 8,249 and 3,984, respectively. Its performance stability was only 48.3%.
While benchmark runs don’t always give us the complete picture, things are looking good for the Exynos 2400. The devices used for the test make its win here more impressive. The Galaxy S24 Ultra has a larger cooling system, including a bigger vapor chamber than the Galaxy S24+. This suggests Samsung has improved the thermal management capabilities of the new Exynos chip.
The FOWLP tech may have helped
The Exynos 2400 is the first Exynos processor to feature the Fan-out wafer-level packaging (FOWLP) technology. It helps boost thermal management, keeping the chip cool during prolonged resource-intensive tasks. This might have come into play during this benchmark test. Hopefully, the new Exynos chip will deliver equally brilliant performance during everyday usage and gaming. If it falls behind the Snapdragon again, Samsung might have a tough time convincing people to buy flagship Galaxy phones with Exynos chips.
