Qualcomm and Mediatek should stop using Cortex X1, X2 and X3 in their processors. Snapdragon 870, 778G and Dimensity 8100, 920 are better in terms of efficiency because of that.

    All those exynos bashing. Exynos has better sustained perfomence. Despite the GPU has way lower shader GPU core and higher clock, Exynos has better sustained performence with passive cooling.

    Also Samsung's 4nm LPE is not as bad as fanboies claiming.

      P C M, 05 Jul 2022Looks like all those previous stories are just stories. TS... moreUsual they measure efficiency at same power level, so its 30% efficiency at same clock as sd 8 gen 1, then they overclock it so efficiency will drop.

        raminpro, 05 Jul 2022Snapdragons are hot ,good days end !!!! they must use med... moreThis statement is not true, the thing that heat these soc is new Arm cores called X1 and X2 thats why Mediatek Dimensity 9000 also use more power and Throttle like sd 888 and 8 gen 1.

        Any soc which use cortex A78 or A77/A76 would not overheat, it doesnt matter if its from Qualcomm or mediatek like sd 778G, dimensity 1200, 8100, 920, sd 870 etc.

        Also Mediatek isnt good for Gaming unless your definition of gaming is just playing few Android games.

        1. Mali doesnt have Good open gl drivers
        2. Mediatek has issues with gaming controllers not all of them works
        3. Not much suport is given to developers hence lot of things are optimized to run on Qualcomm
        4. Custom and different kinds of mods like kernels are easly available in snapdragon socs for enthuasist. You can overclock/underclock gou, optimize lot of things to increase perfomance or get more battery life etc.

The SoC render at lower quality than it's told to. They went extreme with the cheating with 8100 SoC and got caught. I mean 6 core of Mali G610 is beating SD's best SoC and even MediaTek's own SoC. 😂😂

            Looks like all those previous stories are just stories.
            TSMC's version ain't 30% more efficient. probably around 5-10%.
            SD SoC is hot because of it's too much overclocked GPU.

              Snapdragons are hot ,good days end !!!! they must use mediatek DIMENSITY , very powerfull , very cool , low cost,new technology , best for heavy games ,gamers

                  Why 4.6 stars??

                    They put the Quad DAC of the Rog 5 on their headset now. Huge downgrade to me

                            Great,now if only there was a SINGLE mobile game that interested me in the past 10 years there would be reason to buy this 240g hot,expensive brick.

                                But with the overclock compared to 8g1, this advantage is gone.
                                I knew this was gonna happen. I read about this on weibo more than z2 months ago.

                                Problem: the X1/X2 cores. Not if chip is made at Samsung or Tsmc.

                                    WOW the energy efficiency is poor.
                                    Only 16hr web browsing for 6000mah battery.
                                    Contesting that, lets look at LG V60. 15hr for 5000mah .
                                    8gen1+ is only 88% the efficiency of s865.

                                      I would love to see how much power is using while performance mode x and x+ are active.

Sure, Samsung's current support commitment is fantastic, but it's part of a vicious circle that allows OEMS like Samsung with lot of money to sell all the more phones, and the OEMS that can't afford such commitment to sell even less, repeat ad nauseam until the least profitable OEMs exits the market. From there, either you support the ones with better support and participate to that vicious circle that's all but healthy, either you choose to help the OEMs in need with the pretty high possibility that it won't change much, if anything at all.
