Asus ROG Phone 3 appears in short video, Zenfone 7 may have passed through Geekbench

18 June 2020
The ROG Phone 3 in the video bears the Tencent Games logo, suggesting a new sponsored model like we had last year with the second-gen phone.

Blackk Mamba , 23 Jun 2020"Also, why do you care which phone launches an app a few ms... moreJust typed in iPhone 11 Pro Max speed test and the first 2 videos i quickly watched the iPhone 11 Pro Max beat the s20 (865) in app opening. Also watched speed test G video Of the iPhone 11 Pro Max vs 865 devices and the A13 destroyed them. 865+ already benching way behind 2019s A13 . That’s a 2020 chip with 8 cores still way behind apples 2019 chip with 6 cores.. and the a14 is 3 months away ! LOL

Anonymous, 19 Jun 2020This year rog 3 maybe will have ip68 or at least some water... moreSeems like it won't happen, and IF it was the case, be a problem at all... Because you see, the side USB C port got red ones which is for the audio, so, IF it doesn't have any 3.5mm jack, you could use the fan accessory that usually comes in the box which has the 3.5mm jack in it. AND, I don't think they'll ditch any of the ports that had been existing from the ROG PHONE 1, because from what I know, ROG Phone is all about the ports so that assumptions is not correct.

Blackk Mamba , 23 Jun 2020"Also, why do you care which phone launches an app a few ms... moreYou still havent answered how you got to know whether ios boosts clocks to max for a simple applaunch. Only then will we know the 40% difference. Anyway the high single core performance is evident in dolphin emulator, an actual real life test than opening an app a few ms faster. That is something to brag about.

You dont have any other actual tests to show either, right?

>> coz that's what I boyzz are bragging about by saying its 40% faster in Single core benchmarks but in real life still slow.
Amazing to see that a 40% inferior performing chip is faster than A1x handicapped chip.
LOL, So much noise for the most optimized OS.

USB soundcards usualy don't break, Tempotec does have much stronger amplifier, on board volume controls and a build is modular - your cable breaks you don't have to throw it way because the cable isn't fixed.
I own iBasso, Tempotec, Xduo, Apple dongle, Dragonfly Black (og) etc. :) so far Tempotec was simply the best experience.

I use a nw-zx100 with 180gb of flac including some 24/96khtz flac for music as i don't like using phones to listen to music or i also don't know stream at all either.

Black Mamba , 20 Jun 2020Let's compare 2in1 tablets running higher TDP chips to iPad... moreSo you dont know if apple limits clocks for app launching? (on android all cores jump to max whenver an app is launched)Why did you claim they dont then? If you bothered to take a look at the power consumption section of the link i posted you would know there were only smartphones in the comparison chart - and that android phones are using a few watts more power than iphones.

If you check the notebookcheck review of the galaxy tab s6, you will see it has max load 11.91w, ipad pro 2018 has 15.2w, huawei mediapad 13.8w. Do you get it now? ios is not the bottleneck. Its the formfactor that is, 'pal'.

Also, why do you care which phone launches an app a few ms faster than how well the said phones run those apps? Which 'speedtests' other than those app launch tests have you seen that show android soc outperfroming them?

Start working on new material to fulfill your Exynos/Samsung tr*lling.

They get crushed in real world usage and functionality as well as overall performance.
Compare smartphones to smartphones or GTFO

Hemedans, 20 Jun 2020check anandtech review A13 in iphone do throttle a lotEvery phone without dedicated cooling throttles under continuous loads.
IPhone is no different.
What I am saying is that it doesn't throttle during basic tasks like speed tests yet it loses to Android with so called 40% inferior single core performance in GeekBench.

So much noise for the so called optimized OS.
A chip which is weaker by 40% in Single core benchmarks on paper outperforms iPhone running A13 in speed tests in real life.
A1x series chipsets are nothing but paper Champs.

Black Mamba , 19 Jun 2020Apple doesn't limit any clock speeds nor does it throttle d... moreHave you checked if they are limiting clockspeeds during applaunch? How? Im comparing ipad pro because it also runs ios and an apple ax soc, which means ios is not the bottleneck like you mentioned. Even the iphone cpu uses more power than any android cpu, but they also perform much better. In a phone body without any cooling like android flagships, it is bound to throttle.

Why would you compare x86 to ax socs? Stick to ios/android and apple soc/android soc 'pal'.

It will be for the Rog phone 3, with 256 or 512GB storage. They could even add 1TB storage and use 16GB ram for RP3 while ZF7 will top out at 12/512GB. You should see their crocodile tears when ZF7 is unveiled. xD

Mediatek sux, 19 Jun 2020I dont know why it loses in those app launching 'speedtests... moreThat’s exactly what they are, app launches, not actual speed test. Speed Test G is a speed test, and the iPhone SE wipes the floor with the S20 Ultra:

Mediatek sux, 19 Jun 2020I dont know why it loses in those app launching 'speedtests... moreApple doesn't limit any clock speeds nor does it throttle during basic speed tests.
It's simply handicapped by iOS operating system.
Put that A13 on Android and it will wipe the floor with everything on the market.

A1x chip from Apple are simply paper Champs at this point.
As I said, biggest bottleneck is iOS.

And Why are you comparing iPad pro to smartphones?
The SOC is different designed for different TDP values.
Should I compare cpu/gpu in Windows running tablets to iPad?
Stick to mobiles pal.

But ipad pro does really well in dolphin emulator, even better than sd865. Iphones 11 seem to be slower, maybe throttling or worse gpu . Maybe apple limits the clocks for app launch or something.

Why is it not 40% ahead in real life?

That's coz iOS is the biggest bottleneck to the A1x chips.
The chipset is also bottlenecked by poor co-hardware.
