Leaked Exynos 2200 benchmarks suggest that it barely keeps up with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and MediaTek Dimensity 9000

A leak online has revealed the Exynos 2200's Geekbench, AnTuTu and GFXBench scores. It manages to trade blows with the competition but fails to impress in a few tests. We should get to see the SoC in action alongside the Galaxy S22 series slated to be launched in February.

Samsung's out-of-the-blue Exynos 2200 launch was puzzling for several reasons. For starters, it lacked any comparisons with previous-generation products, and the official spec sheet even left out key specs, such as the CPU clock speeds. Outside of a few scattered benchmark scores here and there, very little is known of the SoC's performance. To make matters worse, almost all of its Geekbench runs have been damp squibs compared to current-generation bigwigs such as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and MediaTek Dimensity 9000. Renowned leaker Ishan Agarwal (via MySmartPrice) offers additional insight into the Exynos 2200's performance.

For starters, the Exynos 2200 nets a single-core score of 1,108 and a multi-core score of 3,516 on Geekbench. It fails to hold up against the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (1,237/3,788 single/multi-core average)and even the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 engineering sample tested earlier. Usually, we'd chalk the abysmal performance down to the SoC running unoptimized software, but the MediaTek chipset's performance counters that argument.

Moving over to AnTuTu, the Exynos 2200 scores 965,874 overall (vs 1,003,811 for the SD8 Gen1). It'll be interesting to see the component-by-component breakdown of the AnTuTu score as it will help us determine just how much firepower its AMD RDNA2 GPU packs.

Lastly, the Exynos 2200 manages to eke out 109 frames per second (vs 139 FPS for the SD8 Gen1) in GFXBench's Aztec Ruins (Normal) test. That is a far cry from the 140 FPS figures the GPU allegedly hit back in mid-2020. Then again, the GPU has been nerfed multiple times over the years, so a performance drop is inevitable. It is not every day that we get to see an RDNA2 GPU inside a smartphone, so its expectations were sky-high.

Now, it is possible that the Exynos 2200 could score better with better hardware/software, but we'll have to wait a few weeks before we know for sure. Samsung will unveil the entirety of its Exynos 2200-powered Galaxy S22 series in February. We should be able to witness the SoC in all its glory then and in subsequent weeks once Samsung gets around to optimizing it further.
