Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra vs iPhone 14 Pro Max, who is faster?
The Samsung Galaxy S23 has just been presented just a few days ago and there are high expectations for these. Part of the blame lies with the benchmark we saw, where the S23 Ultra was twice as fast as the S22 Ultra. This has positioned the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra as a leader in terms of performance, beating the iPhone 14 Pro Maxbut curiously only happens with graphics on high.
He Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 It seems that it will be Qualcomm’s return for everything to the market of the premium range of mobile phones. And it is that, although the company had a streak of processors that were very hot, consumed a lot or performed below the competitors, with the 8 Gen 2 everything changes. Now they are back to gain enough momentum to reach those first positions and generate hype among those looking for the most powerful Android phones. Now that the Samsung Galaxy S23s are in stores and we got to see how they smashed the S22+ and Ultra yesterday, it’s time to put them face to face against the higher end iPhone.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra beats iPhone 14 Pro Max in graphics
Samsung’s decision to ditch their Exynos 2200 chips employees in the Galaxy S22 by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 It is reflected in this graph. As we can see, the Galaxy S23 far exceeds the previous generation and it is shown that the new Qualcomm chip is going to give a lot to talk about. Thus, we see that it is almost a 50% faster on single core and multi core and practically doubles an S22 Ultra in 3DMark Extreme with high graphics.
But curiously, there is a benchmark that does not offer that much difference and it is precisely 3DMark Extreme with low graphics. We can see that here the advantage of S23 Ultra against S22 Ultra is only a twenty%. In fact, if we compare the results, in 3DMark Extreme with high graphics, a Galaxy S23 Ultra is 15% faster than an iPhone 14 Pro Max. However, going down the charts, the positions change and the iPhone 14 Pro Max leads with a 19% more performance.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 graphics is very powerful but its CPU not so much
These results speak for themselves and show that the S23 Ultra’s Adreno 740 performs very well even against the iPhone. Well, as we can see, with the graphics uploaded, the graphics are used more and the difference between iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is much greater. He problem with low graphics results it is that we depend more on the processor and this is where the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 does not stand out too much. And it is that, the past generation of Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 in reviews showed a Geekbench result of 1,316 points in Single core and 4,199 in Multi Core.
This involves about between a 15 and 20% improvement in CPU, but it is insufficient to fight against Apple’s A16 Bionic. Thus, we see that the performance of the Samsung Galaxy 23 Ultra in single is 1,583 pointswhile the iPhone 14 Pro Max achieves 1,884 points. In the same way, but to a lesser extent, occurs when using all coreswhere we see that the S23 Ultra stays with 4,937 points in front of the 5,491 points of the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
