 Galaxy S23 Ultra vs the iPhone: Incredible graphics with speed

Samsung's new phone has arrived, and it's already one of the best phones of the year. With a 200 MP main camera, 100x zoom and a huge 6.8-inch screen, the Galaxy S23 Ultra is equipped with a Galaxy Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor with a higher CPU clock (3.36 GHz vs 3.2 GHz) and a GPU 719 MHz vs 680 MHz as a standard chip along with 12 GB of RAM. . This means it should be the fastest Android smartphone.

But that doesn't mean it's always the fastest phone. Apple chips have traditionally handled the latest Snapdragon chips with ease, but with a slight speed boost from the A15 to the A16, it looked like Qualcomm might finally catch up with Apple's new iPhone chips.

not like this. In tests recorded by our colleagues at Tech Advisor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra clearly outperforms the A16 in the iPhone 14 Pro and the A15 in the iPhone 13 Pro, and it can't even keep up with the iPhone 12's A14 chip in single-core mode on Geekbench. . Main exam. The S23 does better in the multi-core tests, but has more cores and RAM and is less powerful than last year's chip.

For details, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 has 8 cores while A16 has 6 cores. In terms of graphics, Apple uses 5-core GPU and Snapdragon uses Adreno 740 GPU. As you can see in the Wildlife test above, the S23 Ultra really shines when it comes to graphics, even beating the A16 in the 3D Mark Wildlife Extreme Unlimited test. , which bodes well for players.

It also shows how Qualcomm is prioritizing graphics improvements with the Gen 2 chip. In the same test with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, the Wildlife Extreme Unlimited benchmark scored 2,577 points, speeding up the new chip by more than 40 percent. Meanwhile, the A16 was a slightly smaller improvement, about 10 percent more than the A15. While Apple has made huge strides with the GPUs in its Max and Ultra Mac chips, the iPhone's graphics have stalled somewhat.

But when it comes to day-to-day performance, the S23 still lags behind the iPhone, and the gap is likely to widen this year. The leaked Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 benchmarks show results of 1930 (single-core) and 6236 (multi-core), both beating the A16, suggesting that Apple is making a big jump in performance with the 3nm A17 chip. iPhone 15 phones. But at least S24 Ultra buyers will have a phone that beats the iPhone 13.
