ARMs Race | Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra powered by Exynos 2200 is on par with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 models in benchmark



Samsung recently launched their flagship Galaxy S22 lineup both for the US and Internationally. In the US, Samsung ships its flagship Galaxy phones with Snapdragon chips and gives international consumers their in-house Exynos chips instead, why? Historically, US carriers wield entirely too much economic power and they only certify Snapdragon chips to work on their network and sell in their retail stores.

Exynos 2200 vs Snapdragon 8 Gen1

Samsung’s in-house Exynos 2200 is a particularly important release, it is the first Exynos chip to feature Radeon mobile graphics made by AMD. Below in the Geekbench screenshot, the “samsung SM-S908B” signifies the international version equipped with the Exynos 2200 and the “samsung-S908U” signifies the model equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

While the single-core score has Snapdragon in a slight lead, the multi-core score has Exynos in the lead. What this means is that Samsung’s in-house chips are no longer at a performance deficit, eliminating the performance concern. No we need to get carrier’s on board with certifying Exynos-powered Galaxy phones in the US.
