New Delhi: The integrated graphics processing unit of the Galaxy S23 Ultra outperforms the iGPU of the S22 Ultra. The Qualcomm Adreno 740 iGPU on the upcoming flagship will be made by TSMC, unlike the Qualcomm Adreno 730 iGPU on the S22 Ultra, which was made by Samsung. The difference is clear to see. In terms of average score, Adreno 740 has given 57% more encouraging results than Adreno 730.
Samsung's choice to equip the S23 Ultra with an iGPU made by TSMC, which is currently making headlines for its incredible benchmark results, seems like a wise one.
The Adreno 740 could even outperform the GPU in the Apple A16 Bionic, which would be a remarkable feat considering that Apple's silicon has consistently outperformed Qualcomm and Samsung SoCs in performance tests.
Powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, the Galaxy S23 Ultra will feature an integrated graphics chip from Qualcomm called the Adreno 740. As per the most recent Geekbench benchmark, this iGPU achieved a Vulkan score of 10,744. Additionally, it achieved an average score of 9,844, which is 56.85% higher than the Galaxy S22 Ultra's Adreno 730 average score of 6,233.
Samsung's Galaxy S23 Ultra will take some design cues from the S22 Ultra. It will feature an in-display fingerprint scanner, IP68-rated protection, a top-centred punch-hole with curved edges, and stylus support.
