not a bad thing imo, the 865 was a capable chip, so no need to stop producing it. It will consume more power than the 888 but will also cost less with the old manufacturing process.
well... based to that comparation, it is clear that samsung customer outside US has been cheated for years.. and its fanboy keep saying that exynos is equal or even better then Snapdragon...? hahah

umm, then what about the 888?
[deleted post]IPad??? Thanks...but No thanks!!
Surface Pro is my choice.
IPad starts crying 😖😭😢 when Surface flexes it's functionality muscle.
This article will confuse the hell out of every reader even the techies one.
the SD870 is just an SD865 with a higher clock speed Prime core(3.2Ghz) + newer bluetooth chip(5.2)
I guess finally the will be something to fill the huge gap between 7xx and flagships.
Anonymous, 19 Jan 2021It's a gimmick until apple copying it and then you will call it InNoVaTiOn, right? All Apple iPad Pro models from 2017(!) until today, already have 120Hz Displays. High refresh screens aren't something new at Apple.
The first that supported 120Hz (4 years ago):
It's a nice to have feature (bad for the battery), but a gimmick on those small screens.

There's a few games that really work with the 6" touchscreen, but the only one I can think of that's that and also not P2W is Auto Chess. Clash Royale is a really good distillation of MOBA mechanics into mobile (and a very good eSport to watch because the whole play field is visible at all times) but the P2W aspects are brutal.
If I were to get a gaming phone, it wouldn't be to make Auto Chess run at 120fps (it supports it, but it's not the kind of twitch game to gain from it), it'd be because the ROG Phone formula is for a battery-first, cameras-last flagship and that's the type of flagship I want.

Cost will be the same. Any manufacturer can underclock it. Actually probably they are doing it already with power saving modes.
It's little surprise this is coming days after they acquired that 1.5billion dollar apple engineer startup

Why not create an energy efficient version of the 865 instead of pushing the clocks higher. A power saving flagship soc is best for compact flagships.
[deleted post]So comparing the 480 to the 888 through a benchmark is useless? You can't trust the 2000 points gap between them?
In between 865 and 888

But for gamers. Its almost essential. As most gamers who don't currently game at 4K options. Will most definatley use at a minimum. 90FPS. - What you clearly don't understand is the frame rate of games. That is critical. Also. With a gaming phone. Those extra animations combined with ultra low latency as well as high touch sampling rates... Usually means I have already appeared behind a pubg player. And it's game over for them. By the time there 120hz touch latency. Combined with a 60hz screen catches up... By which time. It's game over for them...
My gaming phone clearly enables be to actually and literally run circles round my opponents. Whilst there old tech helps them figure out what is going on... Which is always way too late. And has cost them the game.
