What's the point of 18GB of Ram if a gaming PC has 16 and it's more than enough.

  • Exynos.0.0

8gb enough for gaming 12gb maximum your gonna use
no point buying this as most likely going be a chipset war between exynos snapdragon and apple
as new exynos amd gpu performance leaks of 2.5x apple a14 which if true will force competition to increase
better than extra ram that's never gonna be used no game or app will use 18gb currently maybe then 18gb is enough

But still, most people anyways use those apps. anyways, in correlation to my last statement. some people have different use cases compared to you. gaming, multitasking, photo/video editing, etc. who knows, maybe someone out there is streaming 8k hdr content on their phones both on facebook and instagram simultaneously. (Not saying it's possible)

They are doing everything fine..but damn they put really average screens on ROG phones.

I am more curious about how they will do with the screen.

I have ROG2 Ultimate Edition, and as far as I feel, the biggest let down is the screen.

Android phones are pretty powerful now,

People keep saying Android cannot Emulate PS2 and Xbox 360

The point that Wii which is powerful than XBOX360 and can be emulated using Dolphin emulator and sometimes even in 4K disproves them.

As for PS3 emulator that's very difficult.

Currently RPCS3 deploys some kind of MIPS➡️X86 emulator, so if we converted to arm that would need another X86 ➡️ARM64 layer.

wbpwns, 02 Mar 20218gb is more than enough even if you play high graphics game... more240hz is already a thing in phones (Sharp Aquos Zero 2)

  • baba

the best phone ever! no notch no hole punch :)

8gb is more than enough even if you play high graphics games.

They're running out of gimmicks lol. Then next gimmick will be 240hz displays for 60fps games lol. Or new gen shoulder buttons. Or super mega ultra max plus pro cooling. Or whatever else they can think of.

I'm not even just referring to this phone and company
