In a recent test comparison, the Redmi Note 8 Pro running MediaTek G90T works more efficiently while giving better performance than the Exynos 990 based Galaxy S20 smartphone. It is a little odd to process the outcomes of the comparison for the Galaxy S20 Plus users who just bought the Korean giant’s latest flagship at a premium price. It is pitted against the Redmi Note 8 Pro which costs a one-fifth of Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus.
In a new gaming test performance, Chong Liu has showcased the video of Galaxy S20 Plus running on Exynos 990 fallen short of even competing with the Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 8 Pro. We can easily see in the video that after running the PUBG game for 10 minutes, the Galaxy S20 Plus performance dropped to 50FPS and after 20 minutes it further tanked to 40FPS. It appears the Exynos 990 fails to perform up to the mark if stressed to graphics-intensive tasks for a longer period. The test reports gradual performance degradation over time with decreasing efficiency.
Moreover, the Redmi Note 8 heated less as it measured 41.6° Celcius temperature after 40 minutes of game-player, whereas the Galaxy S20 Plus measured at 43° Celcius. The Korean giant’s premium flagship even consumed more power at 3.51W with loss of 13% power, and the Redmi Note 8 Pro registers only 10% power loss.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus was unstable after 20 minutes of gameplay and the frame rate plummeted to 53.8, whereas the MediaTek G90T based Redmi Note 8 Pro gives stable graphics at 59.2 fps.
It appears the Korean giant has yet to unveil its flagship chipset of this year. We hope Samsung must address all these problems in the upcoming Exynos 1000 chipset.
