We have already explained to you that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will feature an exclusively overclocked SoC, making it a particularly high-performance variant of the Snapdragon 8 Gen2.

This was confirmed by the well-known leaker ice worldwho explained on Twitter that “L’Special edition Snapdragon 8 Gen2 from Samsung, whose official name we still don’t know, will have a CPU clock increased from 3.2GHz to 3.36GHz. The GPU will increase from 680MHz to 719MHz..
The data pointed to by the leaker must be associated with Adreno 740 GPU from Qualcomm, precisely rendered with Snapdragon 8 Gen2: if the integrated graphics on other smartphones will run at 680MHz, at the top of the range, Samsung’s frequency will be 719MHz. At the moment, unfortunately, it is not clear whether the increase Wall Clock of GPU will be exclusive to Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra or if it will also be extended to Samsung Galaxy S23 and S23 +.
