Gaming Showdown: Exynos 2400 vs. Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in Galaxy Devices

In the world of mobile gaming, performance is paramount. Two of the leading contenders in this arena, the Exynos 2400 and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, have been put to the test in Samsung’s Galaxy devices. Despite initial leaks suggesting that the Exynos 2400 might fall behind in synthetic workloads, recent tests have shown that it can hold its own in gaming performance.

A Battle of Giants
The Exynos 2400, Samsung’s flagship System on a Chip (SoC), was pitted against the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in a gaming performance showdown. The test was conducted by YouTuber NL Tech, who used the Galaxy S24+ powered by the Exynos 2400 and the Galaxy S24 Ultra, which uses the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.

Pushing the Limits
To ensure a fair and rigorous test, both phones were pushed to their limits. Samsung’s Game Booster was enabled, and the experimental “Alternate game performance management” toggle was switched on. This setting sacrifices thermals to squeeze out a few extra frames, pushing both the Exynos 2400 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 to their maximum capabilities.

The Games
The games tested in this showdown included popular titles such as Genshin Impact, PUBG Mobile, PUBG New State, COD Mobile, War Thunder, Mobile Legends, and Fortnite.
