Improved cooling system for Galaxy S23 series means no CPU throttling required

You might (and again, might not) remember Samsung Ice Universe tipster pointing out that the low Geekbench scores for the Galaxy S23 lineup indicated that there was something wrong with the overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip powering the Galaxy S23 models. Geekbench is a benchmark test used to measure and compare CPU CPU on chipsets that power smartphones (it works with CPUs on other types of devices, but we’re focusing on handsets for this story).
As we pointed out about a week and a half ago, the Galaxy S23’s single-core Geekbench score was consistent with single-core scores generated by other phones using the same SoC. But the multi-core scores weren’t up to snuff, which is odd considering the overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2’s high-performance X-3 core should produce higher Geekbench scores than other models running the regular version of the chip. .

Previous Geekbench tests hinted that Samsung was limiting the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor for the S23 lineup

And since none of the multi-core Geekbench tests for the Galaxy S23 line topped a score of 5000 (which other phones running the latest Snapdragon application processor (AP) have done), it raised concerns that Samsung needs to throttle the Galaxy S23 series processor, which would be done if the chipset overheats.

Let’s dive a little deeper into the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset used by the Galaxy S23 line. There are two variants; the one that phones like the Motorola X40 and OnePlus 11 will use is made by TSMC using its 4nm process node and high-performance X-3 core clocked at 3.2GHz. The version that will be used for the Galaxy S23 line will be manufactured by Samsung Foundry using its 4nm process node and with an overclocked X-3 high-performance core running at 3.32 GHz.

But according to Android Headlines, a recent Geekbench test for the Galaxy S23 Ultra recorded a multi-core score of 5,179, finally breaking the 5,000 mark. resolved.
A Twitter tipster by the name of Ahmed Qwaider (@AhmedQwaider888) says that the Galaxy S23 model will feature an improved cooling system that is 1.6 times better than the Galaxy S22 cooling system. The improvement for Galaxy S23+ will be 2.8 times better than Galaxy S22+ cooling system, and Galaxy S23 Ultra will have 2.3 times better cooling system than Galaxy S22 Ultra.

New chipset and cooling systems should keep the Galaxy S23 lineup from overheating

The bottom line is that during times of heavy usage, the improved cooling systems will be able to prevent the Galaxy S23 series from overheating without having to throttle the CPU. And after all, what would be the point of having overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipsets under the hoods of your flagship phones if those SoCs were to be throttled anyway?

The tipster points out that thanks to the improved cooling system and the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, the battery life will improve on the Galaxy S23 models and less heat will be generated. It also says CPU performance will increase by 36% over the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip used on the Galaxy S22 series, Graphics (GPU) performance will increase by 48%, and Neural Processing Unity (NPU) performance will increase by 60% for improved use of artificial intelligence (AI) features.

the Samsung Galaxy S23 series is rumored to be pre-installed with One UI 5.1 interface which includes new features of Android 13 which was released by Google along with version 1 of Android 13 quarterly platform which was discontinued in beginning of last month. The One UI interface is designed to make it easier for users to access on-screen elements that are typically placed out of reach for users carrying large-screen phones. This is done by keeping most elements near the bottom of the screen.
