Exynos 2400 Performs Better Than Expected in Gaming Performance
Early benchmarks raised concerns about the Exynos 2400 in the Galaxy S24 series potentially lagging behind the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in terms of raw processing power. However, recent tests have shown that the Exynos 2400 has exceeded expectations, particularly in real-world gaming performance, where it has even outperformed its rival in certain titles.
A Surprising Fight in Gaming Performance
A YouTuber conducted individual tests on the Exynos 2400 in the Galaxy S24+ and the Snapdragon chip in the Galaxy S24 Ultra, specifically focusing on demanding games. The tests were conducted with Samsung’s Game Booster and an “Alternate game performance management” setting enabled, which enhances performance at the cost of increased heating.
Here’s a summary of the findings from these tests:
Both the Exynos and Snapdragon chips were able to maintain a mostly steady 60 FPS in Genshin Impact, proving their capability to handle demanding titles. However, there was some thermal throttling, which is to be expected given that Genshin Impact is one of the most demanding smartphone games.
In PUBG Mobile, both the Exynos and Snapdragon chips in the Galaxy S24 series were able to achieve a consistent 90 FPS. However, this was only possible when the graphics settings were set to Smooth. When changing the settings, the highest frame rate option available was Extreme (60 FPS) for both the Snapdragon-powered S24 Ultra and the Exynos-powered S24 Plus. This indicates that Samsung still needs to fine-tune these chips for better performance with PUBG Mobile.
PUBG New State
For PUBG New State, both phones support 90 FPS in Ultra graphics settings. However, the Extreme graphics option is not enabled on either phone, suggesting that there is still room for improvement through software updates.
Call of Duty: Mobile
The Galaxy S24 Ultra, equipped with the Snapdragon chip and the Super Resolution feature, achieved a smooth 120 FPS in Call of Duty: Mobile. On the other hand, the Exynos-powered S24+ was limited to 60 FPS.
As Mobile Legends is not a demanding game, both phones were able to run it at a steady 60 FPS.
Both the Exynos and Snapdragon chips experienced a drop to the low 70s in FPS during combat in Fortnite. However, overall, they maintained a decent 90 FPS.
Surprisingly, in the ray tracing-enabled game War Thunder, the Exynos-powered S24+ outperformed the Snapdragon-powered S24 Ultra. Initially, both phones achieved around 100 FPS, but the Snapdragon chip quickly throttled down to 40 FPS in urban areas.

Impressive Gaming Performance
Overall, the Exynos 2400 has pleasantly surprised in terms of gaming performance. It not only matches the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 but has even managed to surpass it in War Thunder. This means that Galaxy S24 owners worldwide can be confident that they are not missing out on top-notch gaming performance.
Additionally, it’s important to note that these tests were conducted on pre-production hardware, so there is potential for even better performance once Samsung releases further optimizations. With the possibility of FSR support further boosting performance, the Exynos 2400 has the potential to become a highly desirable device for gaming enthusiasts.
