TL;DR
  • Samsung has started rolling out an update addressing the GOS throttling issue on the Galaxy S22 series.
  • The update is only available in South Korea and Europe.
  • It introduces a new game performance management mode to the phones.

Update: March 13, 2022 (11:11 PM ET): Samsung has started rolling out the update for its game throttling issue in Europe. As per posts on Samsung’s EU community forum, the latest software comes with firmware version S90xxXXu1AVC6 for the Galaxy S22 models with the Exynos 2200 processor.

We now have a clearer changelog to share. The previous one mentioned in the post below was a machine-translated version of the Korean changelog for the Galaxy S22 series. So we now know that after the update, your device won’t limit CPU/GPU power during the early stages of gaming. However, GOS will still limit performance if your phone starts heating up.

Samsung has also introduced an Alternate Game Performance Management Mode in Game Booster settings that will let you unleash the full potential of the CPU and GPU, in case you don’t care about overheating. Besides this, the update also improves camera stability on the S22 devices.

There’s no word on when the update will reach the Galaxy S22 series in the US.
