Thinking of buying a flagship in 2022? Better to think again. The test results are clear – this may be the most failed generation of flagships in several years.

A few days ago, we wrote about this fact Snapdragon 8 first generation It has more overheating issues than its predecessor. The temperatures achieved were completely unacceptable. Subsequent tests do not improve the situation at all, and it turns out that the competition does not perform better. Ironically, MediaTek is the best here.

However, we will start with the Qualcomm chip and its Exynos 2200. Currently, most of the data on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 comes from Motorola X30 tests. It can be assumed that due to the thin shell in this model it was not possible to implement a suitable cooling system. This may be true, but it is only part of the picture.

Why are we concerned that the Exynos 2200 will have the exact same vices? Well, because it would be made in the same lithography, architecture, maybe even the same factory. The biggest drawback of both processors is power consumption, which is cosmic compared to its predecessor:

How efficient will flagships be in 2022?

Yes, we have a 15% increase in productivity here, but the cost of acquiring this advantage is exorbitant. Reports that the Exynos 2200 is no cooler than its predecessor are also not optimistic. Theoretically, we can still count on the MediaTek Dimesnity 9000, but … logic does not recommend it.

After all, we are talking about a factory that does not have facilities like Qualcomm. Secondly, this will be their first master slide (not in terms of the name, but the actual test results). I hope they succeed, but maybe not this time. SoC should have the same lithography, similar architecture, and even higher timing. Even it may be more problematic.
