Geekbench 6

The Geekbench 6 scores of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC and Exynos 2400 SoC show a close competition in terms of performance. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC has a slight edge over the Exynos 2400 SoC in both single-core and multi-core tests. Here are the Geekbench 6 scores for both SoCs:

Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Vs Exynos 2400

Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC

– Single-core score: 2,254
– Multi-core score: 7,059

Exynos 2400 SoC

– Single-core score: 2,106
– Multi-core score: 6,757

Please note that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 score above is for the Galaxy S24 Ultra. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC has a slightly higher single-core score (2,254 vs. 2,106) and a higher multi-core score (7,059 vs. 6,757) compared to the Exynos 2400 SoC. However, the performance difference between the two SoCs is not significant.

GPU Performance

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC and Exynos 2400 SoC are both powerful processors. However, the scores show one to be higher than the other. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC, powered by the Adreno 750 GPU, offers better GPU performance and efficiency, with a score of 902,878 in the GPU test of the AnTuTu benchmark. On the other hand, the Exynos 2400 SoC, equipped with the Xclipse 940 GPU, has a score of 590,540 in the same GPU test.
