Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Vs Exynos 2200, Which is Better?

banner 728x90 – Almost every time Samsung releases the Galaxy S series in Indonesia, the question that always arises is, “Why not the Snapdragon version?” Now, after Samsung has brought the Snapdragon version of the Galaxy S22 series to Indonesia, and the question that arises is, “Why not the Exynos version?”

Actually, these two questions are not wrong either. The reason is, several generations of Galaxy S back which were released in Indonesia use the Exynos on a chip (SoC) system whose performance is relatively lower than the Galaxy S variant with Snapdragon SoC.

While the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 used in the Indonesian model Galaxy S22, even though it has fast performance, has a problem that has existed since Snapdragon 888. On the other hand, Exynos 2200 has one new thing that has never existed before, is a graphics chip with AMD’s flagship RDNA 2 architecture.

As a rumor, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Exynos 2200 have similarities in the CPU sector. They are both formed by Samsung Foundry with a 4nm LPE process, and use cores with the modern Arm v9 architecture.

The core configuration is the same. That is a Cortex-X2 core, three Cortex-A710, and four Cortex-A510 cores.


Snapdragon 8 Gen 1

So far there are only a few phones in the world that use Qualcomm’s flagship SoC for 2022. These include OnePlus 10 Pro, Realme GT 2 Pro, Moto Edge 30 Ultra and Xiaomi 12. So the review of this SoC display is arguably still limited.

In a Golden Reviewer review, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 on Moto Edge 30 Ultra can indeed create a tight appearance when used to play Genshin Impact, but only in the first four minutes.

After that, the temperature increases and the performance begins to decline, which is indicated by the drop in frame rate so that the game looks like it’s not without distractions. In fact, its performance decreases to 40% to stabilize the temperature.

Of course, the appearance and temperature of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 can vary on other phones, according to the handling provided by the phone maker. What’s more, this SoC uses the latest architecture, namely Arm v9 which is made using Samsung’s 4nm fabrication, which should be very efficient in power consumption.

The more efficiently the power consumed should create the less heat the chip generates. That’s the theory.


Exynos 2200

Then what about Samsung’s own SoC, the Exynos 2200, which is also built using a similar architecture and the same 4nm fabrication?

Reported by Wccftech, the ability of the Exynos 2200 CPU was not satisfactory. From tests conducted by TechAltar, the Exynos 2200 CPU is only 5% faster than the Exynos 2100 used in the Galaxy S21.

Surely the GPU is fast, right? It’s made using AMD’s flagship RDNA 2 architecture which is also used in the PS5 and Xbox Series X. Ah, not really. Still based on TechAltar, the Exclipse 920 GPU in the Exynos 2200 is only 17% faster than the Mali-G78 MP14 used in the Exynos 2100.

The biggest improvements have been in the neural processing unit (NPU) sector, which is responsible for all the performance of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and the like. The NPU in the Exynos 2200 has grown by 115% compared to the Exynos 2100.

Although the GPU performance only increased slightly compared to the Exynos 2100, the Xclipse 920 GPU has one feature that other GPUs in the mobile realm don’t have. That is the contribution of hardware acceleration of ray tracing and variable rate shading, which according to Samsung was previously only available on PCs, laptops, and consoles.

“Like an eclipse, the Xclipse GPU will end a long period of mobile gaming and mark the start of an exciting new chapter (in mobile gaming),” Samsung wrote in a statement.

For information, ray tracing is a technology that can simulate light like in the real world. For example the effect of light reflections, or shadows from glass or mirrors, which (usually) can be displayed very concretely, at least on PCs, laptops, and consoles.

It is not yet known whether the ray tracing on this mobile GPU will have an effect, the reason is that there must also be support from game and application developers.
