Yeah, g90t throttling more than SD 730g... reason is also obvious: Camera doesn't takes that much processing power as much as compared to gaming. G90T more focused and overclocked to give more fps during game time. Whereas sd 730g processor not that much overclocked to boost gaming performance. Helio g80 is a base variant of g90(oc) and g90t is overclocked version of g90. Whereas sd 720 base variant of 730. And 730g +732 are the oc variants. That's why the both processors heats just after 1 hour of gaming.

Helio g90t is better preformance for gaming and sd 730g is specially of camera processed, so G90t - gaming preference Sd 730 - camera processed

730G is more Efficient processor that g90t 8nm vs 15nm , g90t heat's very quickly and throttles performance to 60-70% after 30min of Gaming but sd does not heat quickly and drops it's performance so my vote is for sd

Whoa bruh that's an exaggeration G90t is 12nm G90t heats quicker than 730g but not that quickly bruh (atleast after 2 hour gaming) (redmi note 8 pro) And even 730g is not less it also heats after like 2:30/3 hours (samsung m51) Overall g90t offers pubg at around 25-60 fps (smooth extreme) While 730g offers pubg at around 25-40 fps(smooth ultra)

Wews, But still it's better in gaming. 720g(note 9 pro) throttles too (it lags a lot in rushing moment) same goes for 732g (ultra can't even provide stable 40fps in poco x3) and yea g90t isn't great either (realme 6 gives 30-60 fps in extreme) All cpu throttles always (midrange processor what more do u expect). But g90t has better gaming mechanics (better GPU, HMP with better overall cpu clock, faster ram).

i like helio g90t because it is good in gaming but is made up of 12nm chipset so that it is down in bhattry life it is ver power full prosecer
