Wow, 14 Oct 2021Not to be rude but that's because of the weak processorRight, since ur iPhone is that much more powerful than those pesky pc users with their 10k gaming rigs, who do they think they are?

Atleast watch the video properly before jumping to end of video for conclusion.

Poor thermal design looks like a signature of all ios devices

Even M1 with 16 watts of power can achieve 120 fps constantly with lowest settings, good luck playing 120hz on phone.

dude111, 14 Oct 2021There's not going to be an "android option" ... moreAndroid phones can sustain even 5 watts of power, iPhones bearly 3.5 watts because of terrible thermals and stainless steel body. That's why 2 year old snapdragon 865+ with 1/3 of the a15 power sustains 54fps at genshin impact.

Based on?
Expectations? Rumors? Wishes?

They won't.
QC cares about silicon space that they wouldn't invest into more performance because 1) they have no competition on phone space and 2) OEM aren't willing to pay more. The nuvia adquisition is for laptop (and maybe server) because there a huge market there.
And Samsung oh boy. The AMD joint sound great, but when even the mobile division itself doesn't give a sh1t about using their own silicon (where's my Samsung phone with exynos 1080?), nor any other OEM is that interested (Vivo was the only one about 1080?), the SSI division would not be pressured to push it further.

Active cooling is needed to avoid severe throttling. At this point only MBP and M1 Mini should keep up but it requires some effort to get iOS games to run.

I’m getting occasional stutter with my PC since GI 2.1 so I guess Mihoyo is working on optimisations rather than rushing 120/144Hz+ options.

So you're not gonna need a strong phone to play AAA console games

That efficiency is nothing short of revolutionary. Plus if I want x86, I'd rather have AMD over intel

PartTimePhoner, 14 Oct 2021My A50 only gives me 15fps at minimum graphicsNot to be rude but that's because of the weak processor

PMKLR3m, 14 Oct 2021Lol apple fan boy. Adreno was always the best at gamingI've owned 4 snap-865 phones and 2 snap 888 phones, and I will have to disagree with your assertion that adreno is best for gaming. The a15 has a huge gpu performance overhead to the snapdragons, that the IPhones are only thermally limited. On the ipad mini, the a15 isn't as thermally constrained. The snap 865 was good, but the inazuma update hurt its performance a lot. Snap 888's are super hot and super hungry, that phones are constrained by heat and power draw. Unless the snap 898 has a gpu uptick of +40%, the ip13 promax will be the best phone for genshin for a while.
