In recent comparisons between the Exynos 2400 and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processors within the Galaxy S24 series, early concerns about the Exynos model lagging in raw processing power have been overturned by real-world gaming performance tests. Contrary to initial benchmarks, the Exynos 2400 has demonstrated an unexpected competitive edge, even surpassing its Snapdragon counterpart in certain gaming scenarios.
Performance Revelations of Exynos 2400! A detailed gaming test conducted by a prominent YouTuber individually assessed the Exynos 2400 in the Galaxy S24+ and the Snapdragon in the Galaxy S24 Ultra. The examination included various demanding games, utilizing Samsung’s Game Booster and an “Alternate game performance management” setting aimed at enhancing performance, albeit with potential heating trade-offs.
Here is a consolidated summary of the findings from both tests:
1. Genshin Impact:
Both the Exynos 2400 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 maintained a mostly steady 60 FPS, showcasing their capability to handle demanding titles. Some thermal throttling was observed, which is expected given the demanding nature of Genshin Impact.
2. PUBG Mobile:
Both chips in the Galaxy S24 series achieved a consistent 90 FPS on Smooth graphics settings. However, the highest frame rate option available when adjusting settings was Extreme (60 FPS) for both the Snapdragon-powered S24 Ultra and Exynos-powered S24 Plus, suggesting the need for Samsung to fine-tune performance for PUBG Mobile.
3. PUBG New State:
Both phones supported 90 FPS in Ultra graphics settings for PUBG New State. However, there is an unused Extreme graphics option, leaving room for improvement through future software updates.
4. Call of Duty: Mobile:
The Snapdragon-powered Galaxy S24 Ultra, equipped with the Super Resolution feature, achieved a smooth 120 FPS, while the Exynos-powered S24+ maintained 60 FPS.
5. Mobile Legends:
Both phones ran Mobile Legends, a less demanding game, at a steady 60 FPS.
Both chips experienced drops to the low 70s in combat but otherwise maintained a commendable 90 FPS.
7. War Thunder:
Surprisingly, the Exynos S24+ outperformed the Snapdragon S24 Ultra in the ray tracing-enabled game War Thunder. While both started at around 100 FPS, the Snapdragon chip quickly throttled down to 40 FPS in urban areas.
The Exynos 2400 has pleasantly surprised in gaming performance, not only keeping pace with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 but even outperforming it in specific instances like War Thunder. This revelation assures Galaxy S24 owners worldwide that they are not missing out on top-notch gaming performance.
It’s important to note that these tests were conducted on pre-production hardware, leaving room for further optimizations upon Samsung’s official release. With the potential support of FSR, the Exynos 2400 has the prospect of becoming an excellent choice for gaming enthusiasts.
