Poco X3 Pro Snap 860 Best Phone Ever, Can Emulated All HeavyWeight Emulator Like Ps2, 3Ds, Wii/GC, Even Nintendo Switch Without Lagging (Some Game/Emulator Setting Still Needed), Can Play All HeavyWeight Android Game Like PES 2021, Genshin Impact, Honkai, PUBG, Identity V With Medium-High FPS, High Graphic, Even Redmi Note 10 PRO Lose 8:10 To Poco X3 Pro LoL.

@NeelFromYt Not to mention optimization issues with anything that is not snapdragon (same goes with Samsung or Huawei chipsets). Some apps just won't run on Mtk

How is the 732g has a higher GPU frequency than 860 while the 860 has double points of GPU in total than the 732g? Can anyone explain!

Frequency isn't everything in a gpu. What matters is the execution and shading units mostly, the 860 has 384 shading units, more than double compared to the 732g 128 units. Which more than makes up for it's slightly reduced frequency.

SD860 has slightly better lithography so it should be more energy-efficient, but it's actually getting worse results in various battery tests. The way better performance comes at a small cost of battery life, but the differences would be only visible when using the SoC to its fullest potential (like playing demanding games where 732G can't compete with 860).

Punch, Bruh do you even know what you're talking about? All dimensity chipsets are trash. They constantly throttle and the cpu frequencies they publish are never true. no mediatek processor can compete against any snapdragon processor starting from the sd665

NeelFromYt, 665 bruh that's way too stretched out. I am aware you like Snapdragon but 665 is just way too low (I think you mean 865) Anyway, Dimensity 9000 destroyed 8gen1 So MediaTek wins in both market and chipset(android)

James, Just because the new chipsets of Snapdragon are overheating doesn't mean the old chipsets can't beat the old mtk chips, I am sure Snapdragon lasts longterm as compared to the mediateks.

Punch, Nope, You Wrong, I Just Move From Dimensity 720 Because It's Much Lagging Emulated Ps2 Aether Sx2 And The Most Ridiculous Things Is FIFA 09 Superb Lagging Like Never Can Be Play Whatever Setting I Set, And Snap 860 Just Beat All Of Em Without Setting, And The Most That Making Me Proud Is Can Emulated Nintendo Switch Without Problem.

Mediatek, Dimensity 800u is on par with snapdragon 765g. Which is way lower than the flagship SD860.
