Recently, the Samsung Galaxy S23 series was officially released, the series is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 mobile platform, and there is no Exynos version. At the same time, the S23 series equipped with Snapdragon 8 Gen2 is an exclusive custom version, not only has a higher frequency but is also named Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy.
Although theoretically overclocking is a good thing, this exclusive custom version has caused some users to worry, whether it is TSMC OEM or Samsung OEM has become the focus of the conversation.
Today, Qualcomm finally responded positively to user questions, saying that this custom version of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is still using TSMC 4nm process, rather than Samsung’s own OEM production.
This answer, no doubt, allows users who have experienced serious heat problems caused by the Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Samsung OEM, to breathe a long sigh of relief.
The S23’s custom Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU is said to be clocked at 3.36GHz, higher than the 3.2GHz standard version, and the GPU frequency is 719MHz, also higher than the 680MHz of the standard version.
This gives the Galaxy S23 series a Geekbench 5 single-core score of 1583, compared to the standard version of the second-generation Snapdragon 8 with a single-core score of around 1480 and the MediaTek Dimensity 9200 with a single-core score of between 1400-1500.
