Funny how a year and 9 months later, the G99 still can't beat the 732G. If you have a Dimensity 920, you better hold on to it.

WWW, A year later with 8-10% difference... is that what you called "much better" ?

someguy, It's still better, being built by TSMC's 6NM compared to the older 8NM by Samsung on the 732G which means better sustained performance which is better than peak performance in gaming.
