buruh their GPU nor gpu clock speed are exactly the same, basically the updrage is just on cpu, 1000,1000+,1100,1200 are the same chipset which just has different cpu's so for gaming those old 1000/1000+ better choice

Sirial, It depends from phone to phone... Realme X7 max provides 90fps while Nord 2(Which I have) doesn't support 90fps.
