Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S24 series in January. Today the upcoming top model Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra appeared in the version for the US market in a Geekbench test. The device with the model code SM-S928U passed the benchmark test with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset. The chip, codenamed Pineapple, had a 1+3+2+2 CPU configuration.
The main core of the Samsung smartphone ran at 3.30 GHz in the test. That’s less than the Samsung version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in the Galaxy S23 Ultra with 3.36 GHz. At the same time, it is faster than the normal SD 8 Gen 2, whose main X3 core runs at 3.2 GHz. In addition, the remaining cores work significantly faster – the second cluster consists of three cores at 3.15 GHz, the third consists of two 2.96 GHz cores and the remaining two cores clock at 2.27 GHz. Here the SD 8 Gen 2 relies on four 2.8 GHz performance cores and three efficiency cores at 2.0 GHz.
The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra tested had a fairly modest 8 GB of RAM and Android 14 on board. As usual, Samsung’s One UI interface is also included, probably in the latest version 6.1. The results of the benchmark test are impressive. The single-core test totaled 2,234 points, while the multi-core score was 6,807 points. This results in an increase of 15 and 35% compared to the Galaxy S23 Ultra.
Furthermore, the Geekbench test also confirms that Samsung is once again planning to diversify its chipsets. According to previous rumors, the in-house Exynos 2400 platform will only power the Galaxy S24 and S24+ and only in Asia and Europe. The USA and the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra, on the other hand, will only get Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processors.
