Exynos 2400: Xclipse 940 GPU lags behind Snapdragon 8 Gen 3's Adreno 750 due to RDNA 2 limitations ↺
If a report from earlier is accurate, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra will exclusively use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy SoC across all regions. It is an intriguing development, as the Exynos 2400's RDNA 2-based Xclipse GPU outperformed the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3's Adreno 750 in a benchmark. However, things aren't all sunshine and rainbows for the Xclipse 940.
Leaker @OreXDA says the Exynos 2400's GPU is now 20-30% slower than its previous iterations, effectively putting it behind Qualcomm's offering. Earlier rumours suggested it was clocked at 1.7 GHz, which has now been readjusted to 1.1 GHz or 1.2 GHz at most. The reduction in clocks supposedly originates from some inherent RDNA 2 flaws. In comparison, the Adreno 750 is said to operate at around 1 GHz.
OreXDA opines the nerfed GPU performance is the reason why Samsung opted to go all-in with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Ideally, the Galaxy S24+ with a WQHD display could also stand to benefit from the improved GPU performance. However, potential Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ in China, Asia and South Korea will have to make do with the Exynos 2400.
