Samsung Galaxy S24 Gaming Showdown

Samsung Galaxy S24 Gaming Showdown:The new Samsung Galaxy S24 series was announced last week. In the US, the Galaxy S24 and S24+ use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC, but in most other places, like India, they use Samsung’s own Exynos 2400. The Galaxy S24 Ultra, however, uses the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 no matter where you are. Early tests suggested that the Exynos 2400 is not as good as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, but a new gaming test video put them head-to-head to see how well they perform. The video shows that Samsung’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 keeps up with Qualcomm’s chip when playing games like PUBG, Call of Duty, and Fortnite.

NL Tech, a tech channel, made a 43-minute video on YouTube comparing the gaming performance of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3-powered Galaxy S24 Ultra with the Exynos 2400-powered Galaxy S24+. They tested popular games like Fortnite, Genshin Impact, PUBG Mobile, PUBG New State, Call of Duty: Mobile, War Thunder, and Mobile Legends. The YouTubers used Samsung’s Game Booster and “Alternate game performance management” on the new phones to make sure they were at their best before the tests.

In games like Genshin Impact and PUBG Mobile, both the Galaxy S24+ and Galaxy S24 Ultra performed similarly, maintaining a smooth 60 frames per second. In PUBG New State, both phones kept a stable frame rate of around 90 frames per second. For Mobile Legends, they achieved 60 frames per second, and in Fortnite, both chips maintained 90 frames per second, sometimes dropping to 70 frames per second.

The video pointed out that the Snapdragon-powered Galaxy S24 Ultra performed better in Call of Duty: Mobile, maintaining a smooth 120 frames per second. The Exynos-powered Galaxy S24+, on the other hand, was limited to 60 frames per second. The Exynos 2400 made a comeback by doing better than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC in War Thunder, reaching 100 frames per second with its Xclipse 940 GPU, while the Snapdragon slowed down to 40 frames per second.

Overall, the tests showed that both Exynos 2400 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chips perform similarly in delivering smooth gaming. Despite initial worries, Samsung’s own chip kept up with Qualcomm’s without any major differences in game performance. It’s important to note that these tests were done on pre-production devices, so the results could change after Samsung makes further improvements.
