Poco x4GT is the problem Redmi k50 is extremely stable which can easily give an avg of 50+ fps in genshin while poco x4gt can hardly sustain 40avg fps X4GT might have lacked some cooling system to fully function the d8100 Source: golden reviewer YT Also, gtneo3 and k50i can give 95-99% stability with ease

Is the Mediatek processor actually good? I've seen it's just capped at 30fps on medium settings in fortnite. I know it's good in Genshin Impact & few games like Apex, but what about others?? Other games hardly optimize it for Mediatek I want a powerful processor for all games :(
