Anonymous, 05 Oct 2019So does SD730... The GPU gaps has always been significant between midrange and flagship chip, ... moreThe gap between "flagship" SoC's to midrange whose more than 50% in GPU performance back three years ago when all the fuss started (with X20 and S650) today unfortunately it's the same o. So to put it simple it's much better to buy last year flagship or even two years old one than a flagged brand new midranger if your sole purpose is a GPU performance (and bang for buck's in that department).
iFans come on Android website to troll.
qFans come on Mediatek's device tests to troll.
When it was launched??? Plz do fast
AnonD-454049, 05 Oct 2019At least Qualcomm releases the source code to the publicThink a little!
Qualcomm abuses because OEM are forced to get their licences as it's standard (not an idea, judges decisions!) ...(in 2016, Qualcomm maked 600% profits on patents! Only 15% with soc)
What will happen if Mediatek disappear?
Do you think Qualcomm's price will stay?
Ask Qualcomm to reduce profits percentage on patents to the same level of their soc...it's ethic and fair, it's justice for competitors.
With normal patents fees, OEM can probably save about 15 dollars on 400 dollars devices...chips prices will probably grow a little, but not by 15 dollars, and competitors will be able to exist.
Maybe you use a NVIDIA graphic card on your PC?
Do you know why NVIDIA don't make soc for smartphones?
Answer is here : https://ec.europa.eu/commission/presscorner/detail/en/ip_19_4350
We can talk about many others, Texas Instruments, Intel, LG, ST-Microelectronics, Broadcom...
What about moral? Ethics? Fair behavior?
Will you support a soccer team if it plays with kalachnikov?
You don't want other compagnies able to compete with Qualcomm?
Technically, it's easy for Mediatek to ask TSMC for 7nm process...
They can do...
They can use G76mc12 instead mc4, not a problem...
Their AI and ISP are allready better than Qualcomm's...
If they do, they won't sell anything! So they don't...
You spread debunked rumors...
Some other people still spread GPS issues...that's crazy, this is false since many years! These people are incompetents and don't even know what they're talking about!
See who you protect!
Seeee! Mediatek Helio G90T isn't half bad. Battery Endurance is excellent and Antutu scores are near SD845.
I don't care about source codes. I don't know what to do with it and you shouldn't know what to do with it. Just use stock like everyone else.
Very detailed review. Love going through your reviews.
Mikey, 04 Oct 2019The video section mentions nothing about stabilisation. Surely it can stabilise 1080p videos, ... moreSame opinion. Video stabilisation info is missing.
Since it's MTK, what about Xiaomi's official statement about Android updates.
GSMA should yet update specs(global).
Let me eiiiiiiiiin, 05 Oct 2019Well, if you read chain reply before that, I wrote ± "I bet it's losing to sd820 in gp... more">: It is with respect to this part of our discussion a lower one that I answer by this message below".
Sorry for the lack of link here. Anytime I have logged this data from GSMarena for each of the phones mentioned in my answer, so you can compare yourself to the gsmarena website (because I'm not going to get this information elsewhere).
On the other hand, when you say that the GFX 3.1 tests performed on these Smartphones mentioned are on screens displaying in Quad HD, instead of the FHD; Well, I want to say that we must obviously test smartphones in their own settings as configured at the factory.
So if a smartphone in 2k has a lower performance compared to another in FHD, to say that it is because of the QHD that it is less efficient is the combination and is not fair play, so the argument to lower the definition to reduce it to unfair FHD. Because if you compare two devices it must be done in their basic configuration without making any changes beforehand, otherwise the test is biased.
Anybody if possible, please bring here your experience (test) if SoC thermal throttles after using a while. Other is quite clear.
Let me eiiiiiiiiin, 05 Oct 2019Well, if you read chain reply before that, I wrote ± "I bet it's losing to sd820 in gp... moreAnd?
What is important?
The GPU benchmark?
Or the way a game work (when it was properly developped)?
When you creat a soc, you have to balance properly the performances!
Qualcomm put a big GPU to get benchmarks score...
With their anti-competitive behavior, they don't care about price of silicone, they can even sell it under its price...and get the money back with their patents troll!
Mediatek have to balance their soc between :
- CPU performances
- GPU performances
And they release a good soc despite Qualcomm's cheated behavior!
And consumers applause cheater!
How can people being that blind!
in 2 days the global version will arrive to my house and i will torture this device to the max and see weather it can cook fried egg ... this is my channel ... https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAe6yJ2_xaN1mocLifprH_g?view_as=subscriber stay tune
AnonD-454049, 05 Oct 2019Lay off the drugs. I said that it heats up quickly not "warmly rail"You know what is called typo and inattention ??? instead of mocking, you might rather react to the message properly. And if you're more aggressive, well, deign not to respond to my messages any more as I will also refrain from reacting to your messages.
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2019Pure GPU test...
Try to play game on your PC with a nVidia GTX2080 and a Celeron CPU!
Game a... moreWell, if you read chain reply before that, I wrote ± "I bet it's losing to sd820 in gpu performance". See!? I was trying to compare strictly gpu only. A gaming SoC losing vs 3yo SoC in one of most important part for gaming performance, pfft
Of course sd820 will lose in overall, because it's only 4 cores, old architecture, and old 14nm. It's 3years old and cost as cheap as $230, with $30 cashback (when I bought my mi5)
Two things unfavourable against Mediatek are heats and source code, but for this chip they're pretty generous. Even the battery endurance rating is top-notch. In term of reliability, I think we need not be sceptic, since my cousin's Redmi Note 2 (Mediatek) still alive in full health until Today. Either this one or Realme X2 should be the real mid-ranger and flagship killers.
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2019You can't use any emulator to make comparison between Snapdragon and any other soc...
Emula... moreKirin 810 (mali GPU) has no problems because it has no thermal throttling, and the problem with the benchmarks is that they are short, the G90T will always win but in long sessions those 12nm are noticed.
Do not jump with the qualcomm monopoly, there are about 10 times more Malis GPUs in the market (thanks to samsung and huawei) and not optimizing for them would be to lose a lot of money, also maybe they would receive some optimization if they were more open with their code, and clarify, mediatek does not release its code (https://techrad.io/news/1581/mediatek-wont-release-its-source-code-but-why/) OEMs do it, which means that not everyone does it and not all the code.
Qualcomm has the aurora project with which it works together with developers.
