Trump Fan 1980, 16 Jul 2018 I own a Samsung S9. The gpu constantly sutter's and exhibits slowdowns while playing the game... moreHello. I think that you should research a bit about something called "bottleneck". You will find out that your GPU is actually bottlenecked by your cpu, which also runs at low frequency during gaming to keep the heat low. Also, 257 MHz should give more than decent performance if you play on 1080p ( but now it doesn't matter since you are cpu bottlenecked anyway, so you can play at 1440p ). I have a OnePlus 3 with sd820 and in order to keep the temperature at a maximum of 60°C it stays even at 307 MHz on the cpu and 133 MHz on the GPU. It lags quite a bit but I'm just fine. If it was 1GHz on the cpu i would had great performance in my opinion ( the GPU would also stay on 200 MHz and on 100 % usage ).
Zenodroid, 17 Jul 2018So you actually agree with my first comment? That we need computer speeds on the phone? I never replied to your comments, you did to mine. So I'm not sure which comment you mean is it the one about:
"Nah. We need at least 5Ghz CPU and 8GB gpu in the phones! But not AMD. Anything else."
Well, no I do not agree with it.
More frequency does not mean more performance. And a separated GPU does not mean greater stability. What you do not understand is that these are extremely MOBILE chips. There is ALWAYS a compromise. Its no use having a processor like the Exynos 9810 that can clock to 3.0GHz and smoke Apple's A11-Bionic... if the processor gets thermally limited almost instantly. And its pointless to get an external graphics if its going to increase the chipsets' cost from flagship-$35 to a stupidly expensive $80 price.
So I want longer battery life, lower latency, equal cost, and higher performance... but that can come from improvements in lithography, better microarchitecture, or more efficient software.

For all I can tell, I can post exactly what you want and you will still disregard it because of this big bias you carry around with you.
My advice: open your mind, things are more efficient that way.

Sure there's some Microsoft Office but that's about it. For the majority, dual core i3 processors were MORE than enough. That's why they never upgraded especially with the advent of fast mobile internet connectivity.
Only the gamers/developers/video editors/content creators needed more power. It is the same with smartphones. Most people really just use them for Facebook and browsing YouTube and reading news and light gaming (COC, mobile legends, minecraft, PVZ, Wordscapes, etc). Even a snapdragon 625 is fast enough for that. Only developers/heavy gamers/content creators need faster speeds.
So are our smartphone processors fast enough? For the 99% of all smartphone users who just use their smartphones for Facebook, Youtube, browsing internet and reading news? YES!!!
Manufacturers should instead focus on battery life/battery research. It's where majority of phones are SERIOUSLY lacking as more and more people spend more time with their phones. What good is a superfast phone processor when it's dead after a few hours of capturing flash photos and videos and after posting and viewing them on Facebook?
Mobile vr eats into that power pretty heftily, and with the upcoming advent of games as service and cloud play games faster modems and processors will be pushed on mobile devices as they become primary devices for the average consumer.

The gall of some people.
I mean what a silly question.

For applications not yet imagined because we didn't have the processing power to even attempt them? Certainly not.
The same debate we had on PC 10 years ago and loom where its sorry a$$ is it today. 5 years of failing sales (no reason to upgrade), no new applications for a solid decade, anything new that can actually be done on computers is either done on xeons or GPUs these days.
No, processing power will never be enough and please do not even start raising such questions. If there is anything that sustains our semblance or better times it the very informational revolution which pretty much rested on the continuous improvements on the processing end of things.
We lose that and we start losing things we may never wanted to lose. It is already a big mistake that PCs are dead to anyone that is not a gamer (no reason to buy a new one for almost half a decade now, probably more), let us not bring this to mobiles as well. The last bastion were IT is ... well **IT**
People at GSMArena are defending processor/chipset speed over poorly programmed apps that slows down the phone? Seriously!?!
Present CPU are fast enough to run anything or better to say there is noprogram app or anything like that to find fully usable SNAPDRAGON845.
Thus making even powerfull chips is useless.
Zenodroid, 16 Jul 2018Or exynos, SD, kirin and so on. SD 845 is already powering a windows laptop. with huge performance discount that is. no matter how good the optimization to the emulation layer is it will never be as good as true x86 cpue running it. currently the only improvement happening are because qualcomm brute force it way through using a much faster cpu

And when you experience lack of full performance on old like new games, you simply avoid the brand. When you experience heat problems or feel the heat in a laptop, because of the same brand, you simply know what to stay away from. And the topic is about something that actually isn't something to bring up, when there are more important things to focus on being correct. Like screen and battery. Only pc gamers really focus on if the CPU and gpu is powerful enough. For phones, those two aren't a problem.
