We all know that the performance of the mobile phone chip is the basis for determining the fluency of the entire mobile phone, and the mobile phone chip is also equivalent to the central nervous system of the human brain, and is the most important core component of the mobile phone. Therefore, many of the performance flagships or gaming phones we usually see often use the highest-end flagship chips, so how much is the performance of mobile phone chips to assist game performance? Is the chip the most important factor?
I believe most people think that it is definitely true, but the test results and the clunkiness behind it are not well known to the public. Today we will talk about the story behind the performance of mobile phone chips and games.
The number of mobile phone chips is definitely related to game performance, but do you know who controls this relationship?
First of all, the chip performance of the mobile phone must be related to the smoothness of the game. For example, the high-end flagship and chip must be more prominent than the ordinary soc on the thousand yuan machine. So whether the overall performance of the CPU or GPU is more or less an aid to the game and the frame rate of the game will have some relationship. It's like why almost all gaming phones use the most current flag-level chips.
But is the size of this correlation really determined by the performance of the chip? In fact, it's not all, let's take the game of King Glory. There are three versions of this game, ordinary, multi-threaded sentences and vulkan, especially the last vulkan is exclusive to only a few models on the market. This has led to the fact that sometimes the mid-range chip is even smoother than the flagship chip when playing King Glory.
For example, OPPO got the high frame rate privilege of King Glory, so the smoothness and high frame rate mode of King Glory are very comfortable and cool on the mobile phone of Oppor 11. , Beyond the experience of the then Kirin 970 flagship chip. So many people at the time also complained whether Tencent game makers charged game optimization protection fees, but later Tencent also came out to clarify that this was not the case. It's just that different versions of the game will have exclusive resources for mobile phone manufacturers.
So the chip performance of the mobile phone has a certain correlation with the smoothness of the game. However, the strength of this correlation does not really depend on the performance of the chip. It is more about different versions of the game and resources, or the cooperative support of game manufacturers.
Game makers play an absolute role in mobile gaming performance.
The previous part said that the relationship between the game performance of the mobile phone and the chip is not too great. A good game mobile phone is inseparable from cooperation with game manufacturers. For example, the two mobile phone manufacturers OPPO and vivo have a good cooperation with Tencent games all the year round, so even if they use a lower mid-range chip on their flagship machine, the performance of the game can reach the flagship level. However, some mobile phones use Snapdragon's top-end chips in time, but there will still be freezes and other phenomena when playing games.
For example, in the past two years, manufacturers of mobile phones using flagship chips such as Snapdragon 821, 835 (not specifically who they are) did not cooperate with Tencent Games, which caused King Honor to often experience frame drops during the game. High frame rate mode is even more difficult to play. This shows that game manufacturers can also make some restrictions on the level of the game. Therefore, the main performance and fluency of the game is directly related to the game manufacturer.
Fortunately, the performance of mobile phone chips has been greatly improved. Even if game manufacturers make some restrictions on games, the flagship chip can also perform well with its super high performance. Huawei mobile phones are a good example. I believe that users who have used Huawei mobile phones know that gaming has always been Huawei's weakness. Because Kirin ’s chip performance has not been too strong, and it has had some conflicts with game manufacturers, it has led to a poor gaming performance experience for Huawei phones. But today's Kirin chips. Both in terms of performance and baseband have the meaning of catching up, so now the Huawei mobile game part is already very good.
All in all, we sometimes use a flagship phone, but the gaming experience is not good. This does not mean that the performance of the chip is not good, the main thing may be related to the optimization of the game manufacturer. However, today's flagship mobile games can also have a good experience with super chip performance and system optimization. It can only be said that the association between mobile phone manufacturers and game manufacturers is getting smaller and smaller as the chip becomes stronger.
In summary, the chip performance of a mobile phone does not completely determine that the mobile phone's gaming experience is better. More depends mainly on the version optimization of the game manufacturer. If handled properly, the Snapdragon 660 can also beat the flagship chip, but if not handled properly, even the flagship chip can be completely abused by low-end chips.
